USA. April 7. As governments and the travel industry explore the benefits of digital health passports, the message from travelers is clear: digital health passports can be a vital tool in opening up travel. The study, produced by Censuswide, found that just over 9 in 10 (91 percent) travelers surveyed said they would be comfortable using a digital health passport for future trips.
This research provides an incentive to accelerate plans for digital health passports that could help to address traveler concerns. The study provided further good news for the industry with just over two in five travelers (41 percent) saying they would book international travel within six weeks of restrictions lifting, demonstrating that the appetite for travel remains high.
While receptiveness to sharing data is high, the travel industry needs to consider traveler concerns around the use of data. The three main concerns travelers have are: 1) Security risks with personal information being hacked (38 percent); 2) privacy concerns around what health information needs to be shared (35 percent) and 3) lack of transparency and control over where the data is shared (30 percent).
