Fewer Briton have been booking American breaks since Donald Trump was elected President. Holiday company Sunshine.co.uk has revealed a 38% fall in bookings and a 61% decrease in searches for American holidays over the six days following Trump’s election, compared to the same period in October.
They’ve published a separate survey of 1,000 British adults, which found that 19% of people felt they wouldn’t be allowed to holiday in the United States under his presidency. Fewer than a quarter of those gave their ethnicity or religion as reasons for their opinion.
12% of people polled had plans to travel to the States within the next year although many had booked before the election. Two thirds of these people said they are now worried about travelling to America. Almost a quarter of them are concerned about riots and protests.
