70% of people Not planning to travel abroad this year
New ESRI research shows 30 per cent of those who’ve been vaccinated do have holiday plans.
But less than half of them have actually booked a trip.
The EU digital Covid cert goes live here on Monday.
Deirdre Robertson from the ESRI says it’s not clear yet how that’ll influence people’s intentions:
“So much of our behaviour is influenced by what we see people around us doing. So, if on the 19th July loads of people suddenly book travel, I can certainly see that some people would be influenced by that. But the other important thing to remember is that what we find is the biggest influence on behaviour throughout this and since last March is worry. And if people are remaining worried about the virus and worried about their own personal health, then that might counteract the effect of seeing other people travelling.”
