Earlier this month, the government released a list of countries that people from England can travel to without facing quarantine rules on their return. Countries on the list include France, Italy and other destinations in Europe. Spain and Belgium have both since been removed from the list after a sudden spike in coronavirus cases.
Raj spoke exclusively about the recent travel trends CuddlyNest has experienced since coronavirus lockdown measures have eased across the globe.
One of those travel trends is domestic travel.
“We have seen a lot of people booking domestic holidays,” Raj explained.
He continued: “But it’s not necessarily right next to their house.
“I’ve seen a lot of people living in the city, and then booking something like 100 kilometres away in the mountains.
“Or more of a cottage-like feel or a cabin.
“It depends on the country. We operate in over 150 countries with over two million listings.
“It’s hard to specify one particular country.”
He explained that normally it’s in the range of 100 kilometres that people are now booking holidays.
But some domestic travellers in some countries travel further distances depending on their mode of transport.
Raj continued: “A country like Germany for example, we see a bigger range of distances because of the autobahn that is like a no-speed-limit highway so you can travel a lot further within an hour.”
Raj explained that he’s seen more people staying in “non-urban” destinations away from the city.
