Warnings this month against overseas travel put a brake on 2021 bookings, according to Opinium poll
Holiday companies are reporting a rise in bookings for trips abroad in 2022 as consumers’ doubts grow as to whether international travel will resume this summer.
In the past week, Thomas Cook’s 2021 bookings have been overtaken by bookings for 2022. “This summer still is not certain. What we’re selling for 2022 is higher-price, longer-stay holidays for large groups,” said spokesman David Child, adding that the type of holidays being booked indicated a desire for big “blow-out” trips next year.
