Get ready for the Return of Travel

Growing optimism, vaccination progress and new protocols are transforming traveller behaviour and trip planning, as well as driving interest in new routes and destinations.

For our first Skyscanner Horizons report, we analysed three years of search and booking data to find out how traveller habits and trends are changing – and what 2021’s peak season will look like.

Chapters include:

  • The evolution of trip planning – from longer booking windows to the importance of airline safety scores.
  • Travel, redefined – from rising trip lengths and journey times to new trending destinations.
  • Price vs value – from more competitive fares available to travellers choosing value over the lowest price.
