The ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic negatively impacted the luxury tourism market in 2020 due to the temporary bans on international travels and the lockdowns imposed in several countries. Although there were relaxations in lockdowns followed by the reopening of borders in the second half of 2020, several countries are witnessing second and third lockdowns following the rise in the number of coronavirus positive cases. Enthusiastic travelers wanting to experience luxury tourism are refraining from planning trips owing to the concerns associated with the spread of the virus. The roll out of the vaccines is likely to positively affect the market progression by the end of 2021.
