Leisure travel is back!
Over half of Americans will take at least the same number of trips this year as they did last year. More than a third plan on taking more trips. Only 13% said they’d take fewer trips, while 62% said they have already taken one leisure trip so far in 2011.
These are just a few of the results of a poll taken by a major franchisor of bricks-and-mortar travel agencies and reported in the travel trade press.
Almost 90% of respondents will take or already have taken a vacation trip this year; 22% have already taken more than one trip.
And how are they paying for all this travel? 57% say they are using their tax refunds!
