Pinoys looking forward to road trips post-pandemic

Road trips are expected to gain traction as the top choice for Filipinos’ first trip post-pandemic, according to Airbnb’s Philippines Travel Trends Survey 2021 with data analytics firm YouGov. The Airbnb-commissioned survey gathered responses from 1,067 Filipinos between February 4 and 8.

Respondents indicated they wanted to travel close to nature and places outside their communities well within driving distance.

Beachside destinations topped Filipinos’ bucket lists in 2021, with Boracay emerging as respondents’ top go-to destination, followed closely by Palawan, Baguio, Siargao, and Tagaytay.

Airbnb said it supports government efforts to revive local tourism as it pledged to drive sustainable long-term growth for its “Stays and Experiences” to help local Airbnb hosts.

Citing research from Oxford Economics, it said it contributed to one billion dollars in economic impact and supported more than 160,000 jobs in the Philippines in 2019 alone.
