Filipinos to travel more – Pahayag

Revenge travel is in the offing as summer seasons approach as seen in the results of Pahayag Quarter 1 (PQ1-23) survey. Most Filipinos (Table 1) are now ready to get moving again – 3 in 4 already feel safe to travel around the country, agree to easing border restrictions to welcome visitors, and confident PH tourism will go back to how it was pre-COVID.

Table 1

Across all demographics as shone in Table 2, Filipinos will be  traveling this summer with seventy-one percent (71%) planning to travel between March to May 2023. Of those who have travel plans, 69% are traveling locally and 24% both locally and internationally.

Meanwhile, 76% agree to ease the border restrictions of the country to welcome visitors, with Visayas and NCR supporting it the most. Only 11% disagree to ease border restriction, 8% do not feel safe traveling around the country and 29% do not plan to travel this summer.
