Almost a quarter of people plan to take multiple holidays in 2021 to make up for the lack of travel this year due to Covid restrictions.

A further 23% are already planning a once-in-a-lifetime trip when they feel comfortable to get away while 12% hope to have a multi-destination holiday, according to a poll of 2,000 people for Hilton.

Mainland Europe is the top destination, followed by visiting more of the UK and North America.

Despite the restrictions, 41% of those asked by OnePoll managed to go away this year, with one in 10 leaving the UK.

The research also revealed seven in 10 will appreciate travel and making memories more than they used to once they can start going away again.

Hilton UK and Ireland managing director Stephen Cassidy said: “Travel is an unstoppable force, and we know our customers are eager to reconnect with the people and places they love.

“Holidays give us memories which we can look back on for a lifetime and this year, more so than ever, has made us realise just how important they are.”
