“The average person’s willingness to travel is increasing and while there’s still plenty of pandemic related uncertainty, according to our Holiday/2021 Travel Sentiment Survey, most Americans are planning to travel domestically during the upcoming holiday season,” GGA CEO Chris Carnicelli stated. “…Consumers’ demands around travel will continue to change in the wake of the pandemic and our team is consistently looking for ways to enhance our offerings in response.”
The Holiday/2021 Travel Sentiment Survey collected information from 1,138 U.S. travelers between Oct. 26 and Nov. 5.
