AAA Survey Shows Americans Cautiously Making Vacation Plans through End of the Year

The great American road trip is the most popular way to travel this fall. A new AAA survey finds that 80 percent of those planning a trip before the end of 2020 will go by car. Not surprisingly, the top destinations are those known for outdoor recreation and socially distanced activities as travelers hit the road during the coronavirus pandemic.

Find details, graphics and the top destinations in the news release, along with AAA’s tips on how to travel safely.

The AAA survey finds that two-thirds (67%) of U.S. adults planning a vacation before the end of the year are not sure they’ll actually be able to take their vacation because of the pandemic. So some are opting for spur-of-the-moment travel decisions. One in five who are planning a trip before the end of this year expect to book within one week of traveling.

AAA recommends travelers book lodging and attractions in advance, and travel responsibility.
