However, 50 per cent of them said they will prefer to travel in December and 29 per cent in November. About 72 per cent of respondents prefer reputed brands including tour operators and hotels and 75 per cent said health and safety is a key factor.

Nearly 35 per cent of them are willing to increase their spends to ensure higher levels of health and safety. Interestingly, 51 per cent of them prefer four to seven days of holiday and 35 per cent prefer eight to eleven days.
