Back to growth in travel with creative pragmatism

As travel gets started on the journey back to growth, industry players are still grappling with the dynamics of a dramatically different travel landscape.

Travel companies will need to lean into their “adaptive gene,” and find ingenious ways to succeed in today’s environment. We call this mindset creative pragmatism, and it combines a realist’s clear vision and an innovator’s bold spirit.

You can start applying creative pragmatism by seizing opportunities, rebuilding travelers’ trust, redirecting cost savings to reinvest in growth and building adaptive cost models.

It's time to get creative and get moving again.

Travel readiness index

A new way of forecasting is needed for today’s travelers. Combining data with forecasted intent, we’re creating a monthly index which tracks travel and non-travel indicators that influence overall readiness to travel again, such as COVID-related health status, economic indicators, travel demand, and mobility status.

The latest findings show:

  • The average score stood at 0.63 in December (scale from 0 to 1), down 9% from November and 30% below pre-Covid baseline.
  • The United Arab Emirates maintained its leading position, followed closely by Saudi Arabia and India.
  • After a minor recovery in the second half of 2021, the spread of the Omicron variant has hindered progress and created uncertainty that is expected to last through Q1 of 2022.
  • Certain countries may begin using vaccination certificate expiration dates as a new criterion for entry.
