Traveling in the time of risk: The impact of vaccination on Turkish travellers
Keywords:travel risk perception, behavioral intention, travel behavior, vaccination, COVID-19
Focusing on travel risk perception, behavioural intention, and travel behaviour, the study investigated the impact of COVID-19 vaccines on travellers and examined whether the vaccination will allow individuals to travel more psychologically. The data were solicited from 485 outbound travellers. The research hypotheses were tested through partial least squares-structural equation modeling. It is concluded that vaccination has an impact on the risk perception, behavioural intention, and travel behaviour of travellers. COVID-19 vaccines decrease the pandemic risk perception and relieve travellers who find traveling unfavourable during this period. Behavioural intention and travel behaviour also increase after vaccinated. The study also revealed that travellers would prefer countries with a high COVID-19 vaccination rate.
