10 safety measures travellers need to feel safe and confident

Travelport has just released the results of new independent research investigating changing traveler behaviours and expectations due to COVID-19.

The study is based on a survey of 5,000 travellers from the U.S., the UK, India, Australia and New Zealand, and specifically looks into what safety measures travellers need airlines, airports, hotels and car rental companies to have in place to feel confident enough to book an international or domestic trip.

The majority of people are now ready to consider booking trips, but only if travel suppliers collectively implement ten different safety measures throughout their journey.

On a country level, demand for almost every safety measure is highest in India, and when it comes to age groups, demand is highest among baby boomers and lowest among millennials.

Find out the Top Ten safety measures that travellers want implemented by clicking here or the infographic below.
