Almost two thirds of respondents – 64 per cent – said that they are considering it in the 18-34 age group and 52 per cent of those aged 35-54.
Other top destinations being considered by Brits this summer are Italy and Portugal both at 46 per cent; while 45 per cent are considering Greece and 42 per cent are thinking about a holiday in France. Outside of Europe, 37 per cent of respondents said that they would contemplate a holiday to the USA this summer.
Half of respondents willing to complete quarantine
All these destinations are currently rated as amber by the British government. Based on the current amber requirements for a 10 day home quarantine plus testing, 41 per cent of Brits said that they would be willing to undertake this in order to travel internationally. Half of the respondents (50 per cent) claimed that they would be willing to complete a quarantine for five days as well as the required Covid-19 tests, whilst just 19 per cent are prepared to fulfil an enforced hotel quarantine for ten days at the cost of £1,750 (the current requirement for red list countries).
Katie Crowe, Director of Communications for battleface said: “The great news is that as expected, there is still a huge appetite for international travel this summer. It’s clear from our research that the vast majority of Brits are willing to be fully vaccinated in order to travel internationally.
“It’s reassuring to hear today that the UK government is planning to make overseas summer holidays a reality for fully vaccinated Britons. As always, we continue to give travellers peace of mind by providing travel insurance that doesn’t quit when circumstances change.”
