65% of Us Are Already Planning A Summer Getaway

Looks like we could we end up seeing MORE people on the roads this summer, because we’re all tired of our current surroundings!

According to a recent survey, 65% of Americans say they’re planning more road trips this year after being cooped up for the last few months. 44% say they have used their time in lockdown to plan at least one trip.

Just over a third of us would rather drive than fly, because it feels safer.  We’re willing to add 6 hours and 38 minutes to our trip to avoid being on a plane.

88% of people say they’ll take at least one trip this summer, assuming it feels safe enough.

Here are the top five summer trips we want to take:

1.  Visiting family.  49% of people with trips planned said that’s one of them.

2.  Trips to landmarks in your own state, or neighboring states, 38%.

3.  Visiting friends, 34%.

4.  Cross-country trips, or places that are more than one state away, 34%.

5.  Trips to the beach or a vacation home, 33%.

Trips WITHOUT the family could also be a thing this year. 62% of people in the poll admitted they could really use a break from their loved ones right about now.
