The number of British residents travelling overseas has risen by more than 30% so far in May with the cautious reopening of international on Monday 17th. This rise is even more pronounced among ‘green-list’ countries, where quarantining on return is not required, showing a 2.5x increase in trips made from the UK over the same period.

However, the easing of travel restrictions has prompted the sharpest rise in travel abroad since the start of the year.
While reports suggest confidence is gradually returning, uncertainty over government travel advice and continued warnings against non-essential travel cast doubt over the shape of recovery that this measurement is likely to take.
