People happy to travel despite government advice

Three quarters of people who have booked a trip away to an amber list country are happy to go against government advice.

Many people are keen to get away on holiday, with nearly two fifths (39 per cent) of holidaymakers admitted they needed to get away for their mental health whilst over one quarter (27 per cent) said they had been vaccinated so they feel safer to travel and get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

Nearly a quarter (24 per cent) said they'd happily travel because they were sick of being told what to do whilst 23 per cent don't want to listen to government advice.

However, over two fifths of people said it was selfish for people to travel to countries which were on the amber list.

And 82 per cent of those between 30 and 45 would happily go away, compared to 67 per cent of those between 16 and 29.

Evie Porter, head of projects at insights agency Perspectives Global, shared: "There is a real polarisation between those who think heading off on holiday to an amber list country is perfectly fine and those who feel very strongly that doing so is irresponsible. It's a contentious subject at the moment and there don’t seem to be many people sitting on the fence when it comes to whether we should or will be able to jet off on our holidays this year."
