We actually did some research* recently which found older travellers are making the most of post-pandemic freedom.
25% of over 55s plan to take three or more holidays this year
Nearly a quarter (23%) have taken a holiday of a month or longer
Over half of older workers would like to live and work overseas for an extended period but home security is a key barrier
With the pandemic restrictions finally eased, older Britons are looking forward to making the most of the holiday potential. A quarter of those aged 55 and over are planning to take three or more holidays this year, and 14% will be taking longer holidays to make up for those missed over the last two years, according to new research.
It’s not just short breaks people are looking for. Almost a quarter (23%) of the 55+ age group have taken an extended holiday of a month or more, and one in ten (11%) have done so multiple times.
Research was conducted with Opinium between 11th and 17th March 2022. 2,005 UK consumers (972 aged 18-54, 1,033 (55+) were surveyed.
