New survey highlights guest concerns over how travel companies sanitize
Bothell, Washington - 3 December 2020 - A strong majority (more than 79 percent) of travelers believe it is very important to understand a travel company's sanitation protocols before a purchasing decision is made, according to a survey with over 1,000 respondents released by Vioguard.
Three out of every four consumers (74 percent) state that it is important for a travel company to state their safety and sanitation protocols on their website. Forty-seven percent of respondents would feel more comfortable traveling with a company that utilizes UV-C as part of their sanitary measures as opposed to traditional cleaning methods.
More than half of consumers (55 percent) stated that a travel company's use of UV-C products for sanitization would influence their decision to travel with them. More than 40 percent of consumers would be willing to pay a higher price for travel fees if it included heightened sanitary protocols.
Between November 17 and November 18, 2020, Vioguard surveyed consumers in the United States with the purpose to understand the importance of sanitation protocols for travelers ahead of the holiday season. All results are from the perspective of the consumer. The survey represents consumers across various ages, genders, incomes and U.S. regions.
