Poll: Only 12% of Americans Plan Spring Break Travel

A recent poll commissioned by the U.S. Travel Association found that only 12% of Americans plan to travel for spring break this year.

The polling data, which was supplied by Destination Analysts, suggests that Americans remain wary about traveling amid the COVID pandemic—and that they may prefer to defer their travel plans until the process of vaccinating the populace is more complete.

Among those who do plan to travel for spring break this year, the reasons cited as the most important were to relax and escape stress (73%), spending time with family (71%), escape boredom, (71%), visit new places (68%) and getting away from daily life (67%).

“Travel is a central pillar of the U.S. economy, so an overall recovery will only be possible if Washington moves quickly to keep the industry on its feet,” said Roger Dow, president and CEO at the U.S. Travel Association. “A true travel comeback can also only happen once the pandemic is decisively behind us, and we all have an important part to play: get vaccinated as soon as you can, and don’t become complacent about mask-wearing and other important health practices.”
