A Positive Outlook For Holiday Travel
According to the latest Longwoods International tracking study of American travellers, 92% of them have travel plans in the next six months, and 33% of them plan to spend more on holiday travel this year compared to a year ago.
The tracking study also reports that only 16% of travellers plan to spend less on holiday travel this year, while 52% expect their holiday travel spending to be comparable to last year.
Amir Eylon, President and CEO of Longwoods International, said that: “The strong demand for travel continues as we look forward to the holiday travel season. Fears of recession, inflation, rising gas prices and a new COVID-19 spike have not slowed consumer desire to travel.”
