  • Youth Group Travel Survey Results

Click here to read a paper on the results of the Youth Group Travel Market survey that we recently undertook with BETA and English UK

The results indicate that there is an 84% reduction in student group travel this year, primarily due to the requirement for all students to have passports to come to the UK. This equates to the loss of £875m in revenue in 2022 alone and the potential loss of 14,500 jobs in the UK economy if a solution is not found.

  • PTR Survey Closes Tomorrow

BEIS’s survey on the Package Travel Regulations ends tomorrow at 5pm so can I encourage everyone to complete the survey to highlight the benefits that could be derived from emending these regulations so that they allow domestic tourism businesses to work together to provide consumers with Value Added products.
