Lounging on the beach may have been the number one destination in the past, but after a year of long sitting, you’re ready to play a supporting role for more active adventures.
A survey of 2,000 adults revealed that 67 percent have spent too much of the past 12 months doing nothing; As a result, given the chance to escape, more than a third want to avoid sunbathing and do something more adventurous. instead of.
Nearly a third (32 percent) would like to see the Northern Lights, but the most popular holiday activity yearned for this year is exploring the countryside on an adventure on foot.
More than half (56 percent) want to vacation somewhere where they can take stunning landscape photos, or would like to visit a new country. 29 percent of those surveyed have already compiled a list of places to visit while locked up, dreaming about the future.
The survey, conducted by Icelandair, found that 37 percent of those surveyed had already booked a trip.
Most people, however, are still concerned about reserving airline tickets in case they need to cancel, something only 27 percent were concerned about prior to Covid.
The ability to postpone a free vacation is now more important than the hotel, food, drink, or destination attractions.
Being able to get a refund is as important as the weather, while being able to postpone free of charge is now four times more important than before the pandemic.
Nearly three-quarters (72 percent) also said they won’t book a holiday this year if there’s a chance they can’t cancel or postpone it without being charged.
“If you need to change your reservation, we are flexible,” said Bogi Nils, CEO of Icelandair. “You can change the date of your trip without any additional change fee in addition to the fare differences, or you can cancel and receive a coupon valid for three years.
Most of the major U.S. airlines have policies that waive exchange fees for any new travel booked before March 30-31, 2021, including American, Delta, Frontier, Jet Blue, and United, and through April when booking with Air Canada or WestJet.
Overall, six in 10 of those surveyed by OnePoll admitted that they did not fully appreciate how important escape was until the Covid outbreak reduced freedoms last year.
And more than two-thirds (69 percent) say the past twelve months have made them want to experience more in life.
