Wyndham finds travel budgets rising

Newly released survey results by Wyndham Hotel Group indicate that travellers around the globe are rising above recent economic uncertainty by not only vacationing this summer, but increasing their allotted budget to do so. Commissioned by Wyndham to better understand the vacation spending happens of its global guests, the survey polled just over 5,600 adults in key cities throughout the U.S., Brazil, Canada, China, and the United Kingdom. Wyndham’s survey found that 70% of travellers worldwide intend to spend the same amount or more on vacation this year as they did last year, with 35% opting to spend more. Of those who will spend more, two thirds (66%) of Chinese travellers and nearly half (45%) of Canadian travellers intend to use that money to take a longer vacation. Excluding the cost of accommodations, Canadian travellers (36%) — along with those in the U.S. (37%) and China (42%) — plan to spend the bulk of this year’s vacation budget on entertainment and excursions. Meanwhile, U.K. travellers (37%) put dining out at the top of their list and Brazilian travellers (40%) put shopping at the top of their list. Go to http://www.wyndhamworldwide.com for more.
