Many travel destinations has long courted LGBTQ+ customers as they tend to have high disposable income, travel frequently and tend to travel internationally. They’re a great bellwether for the leading edge of the traveling public. The good news is LGBTQ+ travelers are excited to start traveling again.
With the arrival and distribution of the coronavirus vaccine, PASSPORT Magazine teamed with IGLTA (International LGBTQ+ Travel Association) to discover traveler’s confidence in the COVID-19 vaccine and assess their travel plans for 2021.
A survey was sent out to over 94,000 travelers subscribed to PASSPORT Magazine along with IGLTA subscribers and asked when they plan to travel, where they plan to go, how they plan to get there, and more.
Key findings from the survey include:
~ 79% of travelers plan to get vaccinated before the summer
~ 58% of travelers plan to make their first trips before the fall of 2021
~ 38% of travelers plan to visit Europe for their next vacation
~ 52% of travelers plan to visit urban/cultural destinations
