Travellers See Sunny Skies Ahead for Upcoming Trips

Earlier concerns about COVID-19, gas prices, inflation and airfares have declined significantly according to the latest Longwoods International tracking study of American travellers.

In fact, the percentage of travellers who reported that COVID-19, gas prices, inflation and airfares would greatly impact their travel plans in the next six months are all at their lowest levels this year – 10% for COVID-19, 20% for gas prices and 22% for inflation and airfares.

Amir Eylon, President and CEO of Longwoods International, said that: “Barring any unanticipated events, we predict holiday and winter travel will be robust. Traveller sentiment is at its most positive level since the beginning of the pandemic.”

Forty-nine percent of travellers will be travelling with their spouse or significant other on their upcoming holiday trips, and 43% will be on the road with their family including children.

Seventeen percent will be accompanied by extended family members, and 19% will be travelling with friends.
