Will airfare and American travel continue to rise this summer? Or will tourists keep their eyes on the gift – for many, their travel bucket list – despite the price tag?
We’ve asked more than 1,800 U.S.-based TripIt users about their upcoming trip, and while rising prices and COVID-19 worry them, more than 95% of the survey respondents who plan to travel next year. And some want to spend (tens of) thousands more to do so.
Nearly half of American tourists plan single trips in a lifetime
According to our research data, close Two -thirds (64%) of respondents plan to travel as much – or more—Next year before COVID-19. Over a third (36%) plan to go small.
What are their travel plans? Our data shows two -thirds (66%) plan to travel for a summer vacation; 64% plan to visit family or friends; 47% are planning a vacation break; 45% are going for work; 31% are planning a winter vacation; 22% are planning a leisure trip; 19% plan to take a single trip; and 14% are planning a camping trip.
For half (41%) of American travelers, one of their trips next year will look at the box on a travel list. One -third (33%) of respondents planning to travel independently said their trip was a list trip. In addition, 29% said their vacation (we see you, seasonal shoulder trips!) Was a bucket list trip; 27% said their vacation was one summer.
So how much do such trips cost? Of those planning a bucket-list trip, the majority (62%) said they Bucket list tours are more expensive than a regular tour—For the majority (47%) between $ 1,000 and $ 5,000 more.
Tourists have to cut back on food to save money for travel
Hana all over Will future trips (bucket-list or otherwise) be a way to spend more money? Nearly a third (32%) of respondents said yes. Our data shows that more than a quarter (26%) of new recipients will spend an additional $ 3,000 to $ 5,000 on travel this year. It was estimated that they would spend more than $ 10,000.
America get lost More money than usual on a trip loaded for:
- Aircraft prices are rising (51%)
- Overall revenue growth (49%)
- Gas prices are rising (34%)
- Plan more trips (34%)
For many people, planning a trip is just what they need to make money. Nearly a third (29%) of respondents changed or planned to adjust their entire spending to meet the cost of the trip. Our data also shows that 81% of respondents who cut back (or are planning to cut back) will reduce their spending on eating out, and 64% will reduce incidents. No concerts, and 58% reduce spending on travel clothes.
People are talking about their design the costs will decrease more than usual (only 15% of respondents), 79% say their planned trip is too small, 19% plan small trips, and 18% plan to visit places that are more financially connected.

The increase in COVID-19 cases could affect summer travel plans
Aside from the costs, some Americans continue to face other challenges of travel today.
Major related problems:
- A trip may have to be canceled or rescheduled due to COVID-19 restrictions, requirements, or illness (41%)
- Flights or delays (41%)
- Koina (33%)
- Continuing to limit travel and guides (26%)
- COVID-19 test for travel (21%)
Those worries are worth it for Americans to plan to travel soon. For starters, the shortage of staff on international airlines (and planes, for that matter) continues to create a fixed travel time that is more difficult and unpredictable.

On the face of COVID-19, while only 8% of those who traveled in the past six months tried (and went with someone who tried) positive for COVID-19 during the trip, it was 300% (from only 2%) according to research data we released in March.
Of course, travelers are very familiar with this fact: respondents say change or terminate their travel plans if they tested positive for COVID-19 (75%), they were associated with someone who tested positive (33%), or COVID-19 cases in their destination were increase (30%). To compare this, 31% plan to end their trip now if the price continues to rise.
If this trend continues, price concerns could go ahead of COVID-19 concerns. But in the meantime, realizing the bucket-list travel dreams and / or 2022 holiday planning is the solution to rising costs and COVID-19 requirements (and risks).
