Most Kiwis think it‘s safe to travel within NZ, but most won’t take a holiday РTripom

Travel search and comparison start up Tripomi conducted a survey in which New Zealanders were asked about their current travel outlook.

82 per cent of survey respondents stated they would prefer to travel within New Zealand instead of abroad this year.

And while 91 per cent of respondents believe it is currently safe to travel within New Zealand only 19 per cent plan to take a holiday. As for visitors, 87 per cent believe foreigners need to be vaccinated in order to visit New Zealand.

In terms of the destinations within New Zealand respondents plan to visit this year, Auckland ranked highest with 29 per cent, followed by Queenstown (24 per cent), Christchurch (21 per cent) and Wellington (14 per cent).

"The biggest surprise from our survey is that New Zealanders of all ages are interested in visiting cities while popular outdoor destinations such as Milford Sound received little interest," says James Watson, one of Tripomi's co-founders.

"We're seeing an increase in searches for hotels in cities like Auckland which is good since many premium hotels are currently offering excellent deals," says James.

When asked about the travel bubble with Australia, 62 per cent of survey respondents (vs 38 per cent) believe it is currently safe to travel to Australia, yet only 40 per cent would visit.
