Executive Summary

Sep 2019
PROSPECTS
Uncertain economic conditions affecting UK tourism flows

The uncertain economic environment, mainly driven by Brexit affecting exchange rates and pushing inflation up, is affecting the UK travel industry. The negative sentiment surrounding Brexit is resulting in consumers travelling less frequently, hesitating with holiday plans, and being more cautious with their spending.

Volatile economy leads to increase in last minute bookings and value for money destinations

Inbound trips are expected to experience modest growth over the 2019-2024 period, with the long-haul segment projected to grow faster than the EU market; a key trend for this being visits from Asia, for example China and the Philippines, seen good performance. As long-haul visitors tend to stay longer in the country, it provides growing opportunities for spending levels.

Sustainability and “Experience more” grow importance in travel

Sustainability and conscious consumerism continue and will continue to shape the travel industry as consumers are increasingly aware about the impact that their decisions have on the environment and on the local communities they visit. Consumers and travel operators are embracing responsible tourism practices.
