Meanwhile, Booking.com's research has revealed an increase in travel searches since the Government's roadmap announcement on the lockdown restrictions easing. It said eight out of the top ten most searched for destinations for summer were now based in the UK, which is twice as many as 2020. Some 22 per cent of people cite a relaxing beach or spa trip as the first type of trip they will take when it's safe to do so, whilst just 5 per cent say a city break is a priority. The top domestic destinations for this year include Torquay, Bournemouth, Edinburgh, Brighton and Hove and St Ives.

Booking.com CMO on brand's pivot to local sights, and what comes nextopens in new window
Some of this optimism may stem from a survey the company did of more than 28,000 travelers across 28 markets to uncover what they feel most hopeful about as it becomes safe to travel again, and what support they believe the travel industry needs to get back on its feet. According to the survey, 77% of travelers went so far as stating that they would rather go on a vacation in 2021 than find true love. And 68% would prioritise traveling over success at work, preferring a vacation more than a promotion. Half the respondents feel confident that they’ll be able to hit the beach by summer 2021, and 15% say a relaxing beach or spa trip will be the first type of trip they book when it’s safe to do so.
