Global | Travel Highlights and Risks - October 2021

Tentative travel recovery has begun with some significant improvements in activity during the middle of the year, and notably in some Northern Hemisphere destinations during summer months. But, for 2021 on average, global travel activity remains weak, with 68% fewer international arrivals expected compared to 2019. Improving vaccine rates, a greater easing of restrictions and a rebounding traveller confidence will ensure continued improvement in the travel outlook for 2022.

What you will learn:

  • Recovery to date is clearest for domestic travel, which has increased in importance for many destinations. 
  • Lower vaccination rates, a zero-Covid policy response across many destinations and renewed lockdowns in Asia-Pacific makes it the worst performing region in 2021. 
  •  Europe should remain the best performing region moving into 2022.
