Report: Americans Taking Shorter Road Trips

July 27, 2020

A new study found Americans are more likely to take road trips this summer over flying.

July 24, 2020—A new study has found that 73 percent of those surveyed plan to go on a trip this year, with 72 percent of this group planning to take their own vehicle and 23 percent plan to travel domestically by plane, according to a press release.

Generali Global Assistance's survey found, 47 percent of those surveyed still plan to take a roadtrip domestically this summer, while only 5 percent would travel internationally.

For a post-lockdown summer trip, most U.S. travelers say they prefer a long weekend getaway with a few close traveling companions.

The survey was conducted between June 5-12.
