Travellers Plan to Spend Big on International Travel This Summer: New Report

Despite predictions of increased inflation this summer, a new report from Skyscanner based on data from respondents in the U.S., U.K., Australia, and Germany, shows that travellers are still planning on spending more on travel in summer 2022 than they did pre-pandemic, reports Skift.

According to Skyscanner, even “faced with a rising cost of living, travelers are planning to spend more this year — their budgets are higher, they’re booking longer trips and spending more on accommodation.

“In the immediate term, there’s clear demand for domestic and short-haul travel, with long haul’s recovery on the horizon. We’re seeing positive signals that seasonality is returning in both booking horizons and trip lengths, providing a degree of certainty going forward.”

86 per cent of survey respondents say they plan to spend at least the same or even more on international travel than they did in 2019.
