Scots look at travelling to the Med again in 2022
After running the Scottish Tourism Index for several waves during the peak of the pandemic as a means of tracking the views of the Scottish population around holidays and breaks, 56 Degree Insight have relaunched the survey as a quarterly tracker of Scottish opinion and holiday behaviours. They interviewed over 1,000 Scots last Monday/Tuesday (18-19 April) and the results can be viewed on their website using the link below (you can then download the detailed infographic from that page).
Highlights include an increasing likelihood of Scots to holiday this year (72% of Scots likely to do so) and although holidays in Scotland remain most popular (41% will take a home holiday) there is increasing interest in holidays to the Mediterranean -especially Spain, with 14% of Scots planning a holiday there this year. However, the major impact of the cost of living crisis is beginning to bite – over half of Scots’ holiday choices and decisions are being impacted by this. In addition, he war in Ukraine and COVID are also having an effect on holiday decisions.
