The nationwide study also discovered that over half (52%) of Brits said that planning trips and adventures abroad are top of their priority list. This Christmas, half of Brits (50%) said they would prefer the gift of travel and adventure over material gifts with 56% preferring experiences over physical presents.
The poll of 2,000 British holiday makers revealed that three out of five people (61%) said they have missed out on adventurous trips and holidays and plan to make up for it in 2022. 65% of those polled stated they have missed the excitement and adrenaline of going on an adventure.
With international travel now returning to normal, nearly half (46%) of Brits said they were planning to go on more trips than usual next year, with one-in-ten (11%) of us planning up to at least 3 trips to foreign places.
Given our huge desire to adventure next year, 57% of us plan to go somewhere we have never been before. A further 64% of Brits will plan to include at least one adventure aspect on a holiday next year, ranging from white-water rafting to off-roading.
