US survey: Terrorist plot threatens UK visits

14th Aug 2006

It looks like visitor numbers to the UK from the US might be significantly down over the next few months following reports of a plot to blow-up aircraft travelling between the two countries. According to a survey of some 1,200 travellers by the world largest online travel community TripAdvisor, nearly half of the respondents (47%) said that in light of the most recent terrorist threat they would avoid travelling between the US and the UK over the next two months.

TripAdvisor is the largest travel community in the world, with more than 3.5 million members, 20 million monthly visitors and 5 million unbiased reviews and opinions, covering 220,000+ hotels and attractions. A UK dedicated site was introduced in January this year.
