Of the 1000 UK holidaymakers polled, most said that they were looking forward to an overseas trip when travel restrictions come to an end, with Spain, the United States of America, Greece, France and Italy proving the most popular choices for first trips after lockdown:
|1||Spain (ex Canary Islands)||16%||2||USA||8%|
|6||The Canary Islands||3%|
Only 8% of travellers said that they wouldn't consider international travel at the moment, with 2% of those that usually holidayed overseas admitting they would stick to the UK for now, suggesting that staycations will see an increase in popularity as travel restrictions are eased.
The poll follows regular market research by the travel brand, which has revealed that almost two thirds (60%) of Brits expect to take a holiday this year, and that 15% say that they will be "getting on the first plane that the government says is safe".
It comes as European Union leaders have begun discussions for how tourism across Europe will look like post-Coronavirus, with Greece's tourism minister, Harry Theoharis, proposing a series of new rules and regulations as part of these talks.
