Americans Still Planning 2020 Vacations


It's pretty clear that most of us have been cooped up too long because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but a new survey shows just how many of us are ready to get out of the house.

A poll of 2,000 Americans commissioned by the travel company Skyscanner found 70% feel an increased desire to travel because of the pandemic, with 76% saying they're already planning their vacations for the summer.

Seventy-one percent of those polled specifically said their time in lockdown has increased their desire to "rekindle their relationships with extended family" by paying them a visit.

Sixty-three percent say they want to travel to make up for lost time, so it's no surprise that 70% of those say they're planning multiple trips this year.

With all the time in quarantine, 45% say taking a vacation is key to their well-being, with more than half saying they're eager to get to work on their travel "bucket list."

As for where they're going? Sixty-nine percent said their planned vacations are more focused on the great outdoors, and 48% say they're hitting the beaches, the same number who say they're headed to the countryside. Forty-three percent are headed to the mountains, 42% are getting to rural towns, and 38% want to visit a big city. Twenty-two percent want to visit a theme park.

As for where they feel most comfortable staying while away, 33% say a large hotel, 28% a boutique hotel, 21% say an Airbnb/home rental, and just 4% say they'd be comfortable in a hostel or renting a RV.
