The survey was carried out on a sample of 1,000 British travellers, according to which people planning a vacation to a new destination do it to for a change of scenery (44%), with one-fifth (20%) reporting that the lockdown made them look forward to exploring new places. 17% said that last year was used to save money in order to take a separate vacation as soon as it becomes legal.

One in 10 (7%) even stated that they did not like the destinations unknown to them. Now the percentage of those who want to travel to a place where they are used to is around 5%.
