The crisis is also changing tourist behaviour. While some tourists prefer to postpone their trips, 80 % of respondents surveyed were ready to resume travelling to Schengen countries within the first three months of borders reopening (see Figure 2). Germany and France top the list of destinations the respondents planned to visit. Other travel behaviour adjustments include preferring domestic or rural destinations and outdoor activities, and avoiding crowded public places, at least in the short term. Some of these changes might become permanent, such as the increase in purchasing tourism services online, greater attention paid to hygiene and healthy living, as well as higher use of cashless and contactless payment methods. The use of robots may also increase.
Within what period from the date entry bans are lifted do you plan to travel to the Schengen countries?
