The recovery of the travel market has accelerated further, but has not yet reached pre-Corona levels. Many uncertainties about further Corona waves are dampening the desire to travel. The wanderlust is there, from the USA to Canada, Iceland, Thailand, Japan and Australia - but most people are still travelling within Switzerland or to neighboring countries.
As the world begins to move away from Covid 19 restrictions, a new, monetary obstacle has emerged to impose a restriction on travellers. The uncertain economic situation poses the biggest challenge for travellers this summer. This the second edition of the International Travel Confidence Survey of 9,107 people in 9 countries.

The results of the International Travel Confidence Survey show Mr. and Mrs. Swiss are keen to travel abroad again by spring 2022. Compared to other countries such as Spain, Italy or America, however, they are not planning too far ahead. More than 9,000 people from Switzerland, Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, the UK and the USA were surveyed for this study.


In the last 12 months, travel has once again dropped sharply compared to pre-Corona years. From a pre-Corona average of 2.8 holidays per year, Mr. and Mrs. Swiss currently travel only 1.7 times.


Mr and Mrs Swiss increasingly want to stay in Switzerland and book at short notice.


9 out of 10 Swiss love to travel.
For the 25th time in a row, Allianz Partners (also known as Allianz Global Assistance) is conducting the travel study in cooperation with the Swiss Travel Association and the LINK Insititute in Lucerne.


Olaf Nink will become the new CEO of Allianz Partners Switzerland effective July 1, 2019. He will also be appointed General Representative of AWP P&C S.A., Switzerland Branch, subject to the approval of the relevant regulatory authorities. He succeeds Angelo Eggli, who will join Visana AG as CEO.
