Travel ban for Americans: all you need to know.
With travel restrictions lifting, but social distancing is still recommended. It’s no surprise that 97% of summer trips are road trips. That’s up from an average of 87% over the last five years. Road trips allow travelers to make their own schedule and customize stops based on comfort level and interests. For families, especially those with small children, it is an easy and less expensive way to travel.
Many Americans are still unsure what a vacation is supposed to look like in 2020.
Automobile Association of America (AAA) comes out with a 2020 summer travel forecast covering from period of 1st July through 30th September.
What about Numbers?
According to AAA, Americans will take over 700 million trips in July, August and September, which is 120 million fewer trips than in 2019.
The overall 14.6% decline in travel is primarily because of reduced air travel, according to AAA. “The forecasted air travel volume of 15.1 million will be 74% less as compared to last year’s air travel volume levels.”
As to other modes of mass transportation, the AAA forecast projects bus, rail and cruise ship travel “will see a decrease similar to air travel, as the 9.3 million expected travel volume is down by 86% when compared against the level seen in 2019.”
