The YouGov Travel Brand Rankings 2022 is aimed at understanding how travel brands differentiate in the eyes of responsible travellers – defined as those who self-identify as being wellness-focused, culturally minded, and caring about environmental impact. The rankings spotlight the brands that score higher in terms of consideration amongst this audience group, based on YouGov BrandIndex Consideration scores from July 2021 to June 2022.
Hospitality companies Shangri-La and Marriott ranked in fifth and sixth, with Consideration scores of 17.0 and 15.3 respectively.
This was followed by online travel agency Trip.com (14.2), and accommodation booking platform Hotels.com (14.0) and Airbnb (13.5).

YouGov publishes brand rankings yearly based on the data from our always-on brand tracker, YouGov BrandIndex and destination tracker, YouGov DestinationIndex. Both travel brands and destinations are tracked daily around the world, enabling us to consistently and accurately measure consumer attitudes towards those brands (organisations in the travel industry and countries tracked in a dedicated YouGov BrandIndex sector survey).
However, instead of taking the views of a general population, we zoomed in on how those brands in the travel and tourism industry rank amongst the Responsible Traveler segment i.e., those who self-identify as wellness-focused, care about environmental impact and are culturally minded.
