Travellers less affected by coronavirus

Travellers are less affected by the coronavirus pandemic now than they were two months ago.

A study, which surveyed how COVID-19 was "greatly impacting" a person's plans to go on holiday over the next six months, has been carried out for the last 12 weeks and the current figure (47 per cent) for this week shows that less and less people are looking positively towards the future when it comes to their travel plans.

The number peaked at over two thirds (67 per cent) on April 1 and it was also the lowest since the middle of March.

Amir Eylon, President and CEO of Longwoods International, said: "The data shows slow but steady progress in a return to normalcy for future travel in the United States. But, we still have a long way to go for the American tourism industry to regain its footing both in sales and employment."

And for those living in tourist-dependent towns, more and more people are keen to receive visitors again. 40 per cent of people now said they would support opening up their communities to other people compared to 31 percent two weeks prior.
