Road trips are more popular post lockdown

People are turning to road trips to travel following the coronavirus pandemic.

International travel has near enough halted due to the current health crisis, researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago Translab have discovered in a new study.

It has been revealed that people are keen to head on their travels using their personal vehicles, as they saw these are the lowest risk (59 per cent) compared to riding a bike (46 per cent) as well as walking (42 per cent).

And when it comes to heading abroad through flights, over a quarter of people (26 per cent) admitted they would travel by air "significantly less" after the COVID-19 lockdown, whilst nearly a fifth (17 per cent) said they would travel by air "somewhat less". However, 43 per cent of people would travel the same as they did before the lockdown.

And it was also revealed that 27 per cent of people were keen to take more long distance trips by car, with most admitting they were worried about being in closed spaces with other people when they travel.
