People in the United States seem to be taking more vacations than ever. According to a recent survey from Allianz Global Assistance U.S. travelers are spending $100 billion on travels just this summer.
That’s a 12.5 percent increase from last year, and the first time that travel spending has gone over $100 billion in the season.
Daniel Durazo, the director of communications at Allianz Global Assistance USA spoke out about the trend.
“Americans are feeling better about the economy and have loosened their purse strings for summer 2017. We’re happy to see that, for the first time in the eight-year history of the Vacation Confidence Index, vacation spending will hit an impressive $100 billion. This new milestone is great news for the travel industry.”
It’s not too late to start planning summer travels, and new Airbnb locations are popping up all the time.
