After staring at their living room walls for a year-and-a-half, Americans are taking to the nation’s roadways and skies and enjoying views that include beaches, mountains and even vistas from cruise ship decks.
Travelers Eagerly Resuming Vacations
With the widespread distribution of vaccines, a growing number of travelers have been carefully venturing out. Road trips have been popular recently, with travelers rediscovering amazing domestic locations like National Parks. Travelers are also booking trips to tropical destinations like Mexico, Hawaii and the Caribbean.
“It’s definitely trending up,” says Jan Borje, vice president of AAA Travel. “We are in full swing, and some countries in Europe are starting to open up. We are encouraging travelers to book now, even if it’s for 2022, as inventory is going fast. But there are many opportunities to still get away this year.”
Navigating the Plan
It’s never been more important to book trips with professional travel advisors, who know what destinations are open and can help travelers navigate through the changing travel landscape. And because of its size and partnerships with a portfolio of trusted cruise and tour suppliers, AAA can offer exclusive benefits and savings.
“If you book travel on your own and something happens, you can spend hours or days on the phone trying to get a live person,” says Travel Area Manager Sarah Rader in AAA’s Springfield office. “We have the expertise and access to vendors that travelers who book on the Internet just don’t have.”
