Significant increase in intent to travel this year: Poll
Thursday 18, February 2010
A recent poll initiated by Travelocity has indicated that there has been a dramatic increase in travel intentions, indicating traveller confidence is on the rise.
The online travel company’s second Traveler Confidence Report finds that nearly half of respondents plan to increase their travel in 2010 as compared to 2009.
Travelocity stated that great deals, especially on hotels, have given travellers confidence to hit the road and take to the skies in 2010.
The report gauges travellers’ plans and attitudes now as compared to six months prior and one year prior. The following findings are based on the intentions of more than 2,000 North Americans surveyed by Travelocity.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
