key Highlights

- Domestic travel dominates tourism in the UK, where 60% of trips made by UK citizens are to domestic destinations. This trend is set to expand due to several external factors. Firstly, at the start of 2020 Brexit was set to impact traveler preferences and travel within the country would boom as it is seen to be easier than travelling abroad under new regulations. However, the coronavirus pandemic in H1 2020, which impacted travel in all aspects will drive a shift towards domestic travel. As travel quarantine rules threaten the ease of a European weekend break for UK citizens, travelers will opt for easier and safer travel via their own transport methods to UK based destinations.
- Leisure is the most common purpose of travel in international arrivals to the UK, however in 2019, VFR contributed to the purpose of many trips also, being the second most popular purpose of trip in 2019. This is due to the high migration levels into the UK. Due to the impacts of COVID-19, visiting family and friends abroad may be preferred to an international or domestic leisure trip, as many people will have not seen their loved ones for many months due to travel restrictions and lockdown measures.
- The Republic of Ireland welcomed 11.1 million overseas visitors in 2019, with the primary purpose being a leisure trip. Ireland offers many attractions, with bustling cities such as Dublin and Cork a perfect destination for a short city break. Ireland also offers large areas of rural land, for a more quiet escape. With miles of breath aking coastline, coastal tours are popular. VFR is also a common purpose of trip to Ireland, due to high migration between Ireland and the UK (including Northern Ireland). The majority (51%) of visitors to Ireland come from the UK.
