momondo finds 9% of users search flights for entire countries or regions, over specific destinations for their summer break

As we hit the UK summer holidays, travel search engine momondo.co.uk now reveals that 9% of its users don’t search for a specific destination, but rather search for flights to entire countries or regions. Many simply don’t know specifically where they want to travel, says momondo.

One in ten of us don’t know where we want to travel. That’s the conclusion of new data from travel search engine momondo.  

According to momondo, their new Anywhere Search tool reveals that almost one tenth of global users search for flights to entire countries or regions, instead of searching for specific airports.  

“The share of people searching for entire regions is actually as large as those who search for direct flights only. That is surprisingly many, when we consider that many travellers take direct flights for granted, particularly in Europe,” says Lasse Skole Hansen, spokesperson for momondo.  

Surprisingly many use travel to experience new places
momondo views the hesitance to choose a single airport as a natural part of flight price research, but according to new survey data from momondo, it is also an indicator that travellers are more curious to explore the world than we may think.  

Hansen continues: “Many think of travel as just relaxation, but according to our latest global study, an astounding 79 percent use travel to experience new places.”
