S’pore Is The Most Trip-Deprived Region, Shows Effects Covid-19 Experienced On Our Wanderlust

Singapore Is Most Holiday-Deprived Country In accordance To 2020 Expedia Study

Numerous facets of our life have had to transform as a outcome of the Covid-19 pandemic, from our doing work arrangements to family vacation options.

But if you felt that the incapacity to journey for vacations has strike you specifically hard, know that you are not alone.

A the latest survey by travel organization Expedia discovered Singaporeans to be the most vacation-deprived men and women in the earth, on par with Italians.


We have a glimpse at the staggering studies they’ve compiled.

71% of Singapore respondents say they are getaway-deprived

According to the survey which Expedia performed amongst Nov and Dec 2020, 71% of respondents from Singapore expressed that they feel “very” or “somewhat” deprived of holidays.


The sentiment was specially solid with younger grown ups concerning 18 and 34, with more than 85% indicating their deprivation.

On the other hand, there seems to be an inverse marriage among family vacation deprivation and age. In the survey, only 68% of participants concerning the ages of 35 and 49, and 51% of those people 50 and above reported that they felt deprived. This is in distinction to the 71% across the country.

Trying to find to justify the pattern, an Expedia spokesperson claimed this is probable thanks to the deficiency of “inter-metropolis vacation within the country”.

Apparently, the study also found that citizens in the East of Singapore felt much more deprived than these in the West. At 77% and 69% respectively, the variance is fairly stark.

Why this is so is unclear. Perhaps mainly because of the West’s proximity to our neighbours in the North?

Italy & Singapore prime the record

Joint prime with us is Italy, where 71% of respondents also indicated that they are “very” or “somewhat” holiday vacation-deprived.

Our closest neighbour Malaysia is 3rd, with 68% of individuals saying they are holiday vacation-deprived.

Hope we can go on abroad holiday seasons soon

With these types of higher levels of ‘vacation deprivation’, it goes without having expressing that Singaporeans are a bunch inflicted with a wanderlust.
