About this research

Having endured restrictions, closures and bans, the global travel and tourism industry has seen some of the biggest disruption with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Along with it came cancelled plans, new ways of working and travel concerns. As some global restrictions begin to lift and vaccinations are distributed, the global community of travellers is beginning to look ahead to a new-normal.

Kantar has conducted an online survey among people globally, asking about their personal and business travel plans and their feelings towards travelling in today's environment.
