New report reveals what travellers are anxious about | The Insight Files | Scoop.it

A new global travel anxiety survey found terrorism and disease to be the biggest deterrents of travel, whilst Australia and New Zealand came out on top for the safest destinations. A new report, entitled How Global Voices Shape Travel Choices: The Impact of Consumer Apprehension on Travel Intention, has been released with a number of interesting findings for the travel industry. The report surveyed 2,000 American, European and other global travellers worldwide during October 2015 via an online survey. The report found that one in four travellers changed their holiday in the past year due to global or local safety, security or health concerns. Both Australia and New Zealand were considered the 'most desirable' and 'safest destinations' to travel to, followed by island nations in the Pacific Ocean and Western Europe. Find out more.
