Skift Take

Sustainability and remote work will shape how we live and how we travel profoundly on the other side of the pandemic. Understanding what travelers think of these two topics and how these two areas will impact their future travel decisions is crucial for the industry rebuild.

Skift Research has recently conducted a survey of travelers in the U.S., UK, Australia, China and India to understand the crucial questions on how the pandemic has changed consumer travel habits and patterns, what might be short-lived and what might be long-lasting shifts.

Our first report from the survey — 2022 Traveler: A Multi-Country Survey Report — provides detailed findings on major travel components — outbound travel, accommodation, transportation, destination, and tourism activities.

In this second report, Sustainability and Remote Work Shaping the Future of Travel: A Consumer Perspective, we focus on two areas that emerged from the pandemic and will shape travel in fundamental ways: sustainability and remote work.
