Based on empirical data collected from Italy, Sweden, India and few more others, we found that the external restrictions and personal characteristics are the driving factors of the changes in ones' daily trips. However, the estimation results do not show a strong correlation between the countries' restriction policy and the respondents' likelihood to adopt the new and online-based behaviours for any of the activities after the restriction period.
