Zapwater Communications, a leading travel and lifestyle communications agency, has revealed the results of a post-COVID-19 travel survey conducted among 1,280 US-based frequent travellers.
The agency surveyed a sampling of likely travellers about their travel decisions pre- and post-COVID-19, including areas of preference to travel, when they would feel comfortable travelling again, length of trip, mode of transportation, travel experiences, type of trip, factors that would influence travel, and travel habits among others. When it came to international travel, Canada came out on top as the No. 1 destination.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted travel and tourism worldwide,” said David Zapata, CEO & Founder of Zapwater Communications. “We wanted to survey frequent travellers to learn about its impact on future travel plans post-COVID-19. We hope the survey results will shed some light on what travellers are thinking about future travel plans to help hotels and destinations better prepare for a re-opening.”
