Travel intentions

Key findings

  • More than half (55%) of Australians reported they intend to go on a domestic holiday once COVID-19 travel restrictions ease. Less than a third (29%) reported they intend to go on an international holiday.

Domestic and international travel intentions once COVID-19 restrictions ease

The survey asked Australians aged 18 years or over whether they intend to go on a domestic or international holiday once COVID-19 travel restrictions ease, and if so when they intend to do so.

More than half (55%) reported they intend to go on a domestic holiday once COVID-19 travel restrictions have eased or lifted. Less than a third (29%) reported they intend to go on an international holiday.
