Holidaymakers want to travel for longer periods

Holidaymakers want to travel for longer periods when they go away next.

A new study by the Expedia Group, in partnership with global research firm BVA BDRC, has revealed that online travel agencies have been busy attracting those who want to travel domestically over the next few months, as the UK looks towards staycations in 2021.

And over half of travellers want to use an online travel agency to book their trips away over the coming months and those who use agencies are likely to stay away for longer and spend more time away.

Orla Lee Vice President, market management at Expedia Group, commented of the study's findings: "Despite traditional perceptions of OTA travellers being bargain hunters, this research demonstrates they are a higher spending audience. The ability to search for multiple travel products on a single platform and compare multiple properties in the same location are as powerful motivators as finding the best room rate when they are searching for and booking holidays."
