A survey carried out by online travel agency, Booking.com, shows that 63% of Singaporeans are not planning to travel abroad for now. While Singapore is on the “green list” for most countries, the survey shows that most Singaporeans remain cautious about overseas travel. In general, over a year and a half since the start of the pandemic, travel in the Asia-Pacific region remains stagnant, with experts predicting it will be at least mid-2022 before that changes.

However, Singaporeans are still favouring some countries over others in their online searches. The UK and Germany are 2 popular searches, particularly since the announcement of a vaccinated travel bubble with Germany this month. At least 80% of Singaporeans are now fully vaccinated against Covid-19. According to the Booking.com survey, the top 5 destinations Singaporeans are researching online are London, Dubai, Rome, Munich, and Berlin. Factors affecting those choices include how those countries have responded to the pandemic, the likelihood of travel bubbles being implemented, and how quickly each country is lifting their Covid-19 restrictions.

Meanwhile, in another survey, conducted by the financial app, YouTrip, up to 7 in 10 Singaporeans say they will travel as soon as their borders are open, with 54% ready to go once restrictions are lifted. Of those surveyed, 40% are looking at Japan, Thailand, and Malaysia, as possible holiday destinations. And 85% of respondents say they’re prepared to spend more on their trip, to make up for having to cancel previously-made holiday plans.
