Travel: Which Factors Are Influencing Decisions?

The risks involved when visiting a destination and the possibility of making reservations with less notice are fundamental factors that consumers will consider when deciding whether or not to take a trip in the coming months.

Friday, September 25, 2020

The outbreak of covid-19 in several countries around the world almost caused air, sea and land transport to disappear, as several governments decided to ban leisure and business travel.

Gradually, passenger transport systems have begun to be reactivated and at the global level the authorities of different countries have been relaxing restrictions.

In this context of reopening borders, CentralAmericaData reports explain that when restrictions were decreed due to the outbreak of covid-19 in the region, interest in travel agency services collapsed, but in mid-May the decline was halted and since then all markets have registered increases in interactions associated with the issue.

In this new commercial reality, the trends emerging in the coming months have begun to be identified, since in the absence of a vaccine against the coronavirus, consumers are expected to change their habits.

An article from Hosteltur.com reviews that according to Moshe Rafiah, Skyscanner's CEO, "... Travelers, as far as they can and want to travel, are defining new ways to explore the world. Whether it is planning and traveling with less notice, assessing risks in depth before making a decision, or demanding an unprecedented level of transparency to book with peace of mind, all these changes in thinking are shaping the travel of the future."

For the new business scenario, 5 types of factors have priority, which are health-related, economic, social, ethical and leisure-related.

The publication adds that "... according to Skyscanner, low-cost airlines will be the ones to lead recovery, thanks to their commercial approaches and point-to-point models."
