Do you have a particular bucket-list trip you’ve been holding off on taking due to the general state of the world? Now might be the perfect time to start planning again. A new survey found about 30 percent of travelers, both in the United States and globally, are considering a bucket-list trip for 2022. The survey also found about one quarter of travelers are looking to travel to new places, and nearly half are considering destinations further away than they might have visited in recent years.
The survey also looked at increases in flight bookings in 2022 compared to 2019, and the survey noticed several destinations saw big jumps in interest. Bookings for flights to Qatar have increased by 522 percent, while bookings for flights to Anguilla have increased by 420 percent. Flights to Saint Barths saw an increase of 345 percent.
“As travel restrictions have eased and traveler confidence returned, we’ve witnessed a travel revival with pent-up demand turning into millions of travelers enjoying their much-longed-for trips again. Our latest traveler pulse research reveals a strong desire to make big bucket list trips a reality this year, and with destinations previously off-limits due to restrictions like New Zealand, Australia and Japan now firmly back on our bucket lists, we expect to see more travelers looking to go further,” said Naomi Hahnm, travel trends forecaster, Skyscanner.
