Report Summary

“Despite pressures from the ongoing cost-of-living crisis, a large proportion of consumers are still prioritising holidays during the summer period. Staycations remain an affordable option for many, whilst other travellers are keen to make up for lost time and head further afield. With a war chest of savings built up over lockdown, once-in-a-lifetime holidays to celebrate a special birthday or occasion are back on the cards, providing travel brands with an opportunity to promote upgrades and additional extras for consumers seeking a more luxurious experience.”
