According to a recent AAA survey, two-thirds of Americans are planning to take a leisure trip in the next 12 months.
Of these, 78 percent say they plan to take a leisure trip inside the U.S. Sixty-eight percent of travelers plan to take a road trip, and one-quarter (27 percent) are planning an international vacation to global destinations. Other responses include a vacation package or group tour (17 percent), a cruise (16 percent), and a train trip (9 percent).
“It’s encouraging to see so many people planning vacations next year,” said Krista Mullenger, vice president of Travel, AAA Oklahoma. “It’s important to step away from hectic lifestyles and unwind, while also creating lasting family memories.”
Forty-four percent of Americans plan to take one or two trips in the next 12 months, 14 percent indicate they will take three to four vacations, and the remaining seven percent will take five or more trips.
