Kuoni travel trends by numbers

Kuoni released its 2019 Travel Trends Report this week, giving a good indicator of the long-haul travel market. Here's a quick summary of the stats:

11,160 - the number of glasses of Prosecco poured for customers in Kuoni stores last year - a new record

187 - the combined age of the couple who are Kuoni's oldest customers

70 - the percentage of appointments with a Kuoni travel expert that convert to a sale

70 - also the percentage of people who believe their reasons for booking a holiday have changed over the years, with almost half saying this is due to more variety on offer with a wider choice of activities, workshops and retreats.

60 - the percentage of adults who say they learnt something new on holiday as a child, with more than half believing that their childhood experience had improved their life as an adult.~
