Bank Holiday Trip Tracker

Easter. August. Christmas. The major bank holidays mark peak periods for tourism. To get a picture of who is visiting and why during these key holidays, we use the Trip Tracker – a short survey to find out more about travel intentions.

Over the weekend before each bank holiday, a sample of 1,200 British adults aged 16+ are contacted and asked whether they intend to take any overnight trips over the coming fortnight, and if so, whether these will be in the UK or abroad and for what purpose (holiday, business or visiting friends and relatives).
