  • Older citzens are more hesitant when it comes to traveling this year (Reise vor 9, https://www.reisevor9.de/inside/aeltere-sind-mit-reiseplaenen-in-diesem-jahr-zoegerlich). Since 2019 the share of the 50- to 69-year-olds who plan to travel in the upcoming year has decreased from 59% in 2019 to 31% in 2021. 44% of the 18- to 34-year-olds are still planning a trip for 2021 (60% in 2019) and 48% of the families (66% in 2019). In total, 42% of the Germans are still planning to travel this year, compared to 70% in 2019. 35% of those cite the Corona pandemic as an influencing factor of their travel plans. This equals the numbers of 2020.
