Publication date:
Oct 2022





According to the latest Long-Haul Travel Barometer (LHTB) 3/2022, which provides insights on traveller sentiment for this autumn and early winter (September – December 2022), the appetite for overseas travel has improved, with Brazil (150p), Canada (136p) and the US (126p) showing the greatest rise in the sentiment index compared to summer. However, the desire to visit Europe has stagnated in key markets, showing only marginal improvements.

  • Appetite for overseas trips is recovering in key markets, but the sentiment to visit European destinations is lagging behind
  • 41% of US travellers state they will feel more confident travelling to Europe when their personal financial situation improves
  • Exploring Europe’s cultural and historical heritage is the leading motivation for those planning to visit Europe in the next months
