Vacation Bookings Likely to be Affected by Pandemic Uncertainty

29 October 2021

Experts predict that the delta surge may not be the last COVID-19 wave to hit the US especially as the country heads into the winter months which brought with them a huge rise in cases last year. However, some experts argue that a rise in winter cases will likely result in fewer hospitalizations as a result of increased immunity due to the vaccine rollout. Vaccinated foreign nationals are to be allowed to enter the US in November after an 18-month ban and tourism operators are expected to benefit from this change. According to travel booking platform Hopper searches for US-bound international flights increased 27% on September 20, the date of the announcement, from the day prior while searches for flights from Europe to the US spiked 68%.

The uncertainty around traveling may result in increased demand for travel agencies that can keep on top of changing regulations. According to a study by Sandals Resorts and the American Society of Travel Advisors, approximately 44% of travelers who rarely or sometimes used a travel agent before the pandemic are likely to turn to one in a post-pandemic future. This is in contrast to the 27% of travelers who always or often used a travel agent before the pandemic.
