In China, more than half of travelers estimate that they will travel more often after the end of the pandemic, according to 25% of Americans and 17% of Germans.

These are some of the findings from a recent study by ITB Berlin and the Statista research institute, conducted on a representative sample of consumers in Germany, the US and China, seeking to reveal travel behavior in the past as well as the coming concerns holiday planning.

Most of the travelers who do not want to travel this year said that the pandemic is to blame.
