As people head to the long weekend of July 4, travel bookings are approaching pandemic levels new analysis From TripIt by Concur and mostly warm weather coastal destinations are attracting vacationers.

(However, domestic flights accounted for only 51 percent of bookings in 2019, although they increased by 146 percent compared to the previous year. International flights, unexpectedly, reached only 29 percent of the 2019 level.)

Why the relative rise?

“Vaccines have boosted confidence in travelers,” Moyse said, and more than half of U.S. travelers surveyed by TripIt in April said vaccination was the most important requirement for them to feel comfortable flying.

The travel firm found that three sunny and sandy spots – California, Florida and Hawaii – accounted for a quarter or more of all flights and car rentals this weekend.

“TripIt bookings show that these popular beach destinations have been popular since Labor Day 2020, as travelers go for warmer weather,” Moyse said. “Whether it’s extra vitamin D or outdoor activities that facilitate social distance, a trip to the coast has been a key tool in traveling with the pandemic.”

Americans seem to be standing farther away from home now that they have decided to cross the road, TripIt has found. The average length of stay in hotels, guesthouses and resorts is 4.11 days, which is 3.23 days more than in 2019, while staying on holiday rent is even longer, on average 5.83 days, compared to 4.12 days two years ago. more than a day.

“Compared to 2019, travelers stay in hotels for about a day longer and an extra two days longer on holiday rentals,” Moyse said.

A trip to the beach was a major part of the trip with the pandemic.

“Renting a holiday during a pandemic has opened the appetite of some to their privacy and the safety of the crowd,” he added. “They also have the opportunity to live comfortably in places that are remote and don’t have many hotels.”

And while nearly 97% of all travelers stay seven days or less in 2019, more than 15% stay longer than a week in 2021 – a six-fold increase.
