There are collected data on how Americans want to spend this 2021’s holidays. According to this new data from Squaremouth, the travel insurance aggregator, 65 percent of trips that were booked already for the next year are to international destinations.
It seems as though the COVID-19 pandemic has led to repressed demands among travelers and now they want to get over it by venturing abroad. Squaremouth reports that international destinations are going to take 86 percent of all planned trips in January and February 2021.
The data that this report is based upon is from all travel insurance policies bought through Squaremouth.com amid March 12 and August 15, 2020, for travel in 2021.
Naturally, travel limitations resulting from the on-going pandemic are having a reflective impact on the destinations where Americans are booking for next year. These targets are mostly places that are already accessible to U.S. travelers, such as Mexico and the Caribbean but postponing the trips till early 2021 shows that there are major things to be considered before traveling, especially internationally.
Referring to this Squaremouth’s research, vaulting over the U.S. for the first time since the COVID-19 crisis began, Mexico is the most popular international place that Americans are planning to visit in 2021. The other top-five marked as being booked the most for the holidays are the Bahamas, U.S. Virgin Islands, Aruba, and Jamaica.
While struggling with the coronavirus and its impacts, the list of approved countries for travel is growing gradually due to how many nations are implementing strict testing protocols in place of mandatory quarantine. Plus, medically diagnosing the virus and the test package is becoming one of the inseparable parts of any transportation end, so the trend portends well for those willing to travel internationally in early 2021.
