Tripadvisor says: ‘If 2021 was the year travellers dipped their toes in the water with smaller getaways and outdoors trips, 2022 is shaping up to be the year we return to travel in a big way. Despite new variant surges, data shows that the desire to travel remains stronger than ever.’

According to a survey carried out by the travel site, 78 per cent of Britons say that they are ‘likely to travel for leisure in 2022, compared to 72 per cent of those who said that they travelled for leisure in 2019’.

Steven Paganelli – Director, Destinations, Hotels and OTAs, Americas at Tripadvisor – says: ‘As the world returns to travel, priorities are changing, and people want more memorable experiences on their trips. Almost three-quarters (70 per cent) of Brits say that it’s important they “see new places” when thinking about their future travel plans.

‘There is a whole world out there to choose from, and we want to help guide travellers looking to take the best trips for them – whatever that perfect holiday destination may look like. From adventure to R&R, the 2022 Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards for Destinations includes several subcategories created to reflect the best places to go no matter what type of trip you’re after.’
