Review reveals travel optimism, air travel readiness at Pandemic -Era heights – TripIt Blog

American tourists have faced many winds in the past six months, especially during high travel times (such as winter vacations) and major seasonal events.

As a result, you may have heard of space delays and canceled flights; non -motorized vehicles; long lines in flight safety; outbound trips based on positive COVID-19 tests; and “trip booking” -the method by which people book return trips in preparation for planning A Go Wrong.

But these topics will tell the whole story? Is this the new trend of moving forward?

Last month, we asked about 1,300 US-based TripIt users to tell us about their (and upcoming) travel trips. And what they told us told a very good story about the trip.

To begin with, Americans continue to return to the air, the roads, the trains, and the oceans. Our research data shows that 72% of respondents traveled by plane within the US in the past six months; 64% went on a road trip with a private car; 29% took a ground plane; 10% went by train; and 6% sailed by ship. Even better, 97% of travel plans are next year.

Here’s what travelers have to say about their latest travel experiences and upcoming travel plans.

Although some travelers experienced flight difficulties, most did not

More than half (60%) of those who traveled in the past six months said they had not experienced any kind of flight, was canceled, or delayed. Only 12% of those whose flights were canceled.

And while there’s no denying that there will be an increase in non -motorists by 2021, a better 5% of people say they’ve had one while traveling.

Admittedly, some travelers had problems, but most were able to travel from A to B without any problems.

COVID-19 testing for the trip has increased, plans have not been finalized

Our data shows that about three -quarters of Americans have flown in the last six months, and nearly a third have traveled the world. So, how about our typical travel – for example, the COVID -19 test requirements; travel car; verification of medication prescriptions – play when trips are on the road?

According to our data, of those who traveled in the last six months, 54% took a COVID-19 test—up 25% from October—And 26% used a black passport on their travels (up 11%).

While there is a significant increase in the number of people taking COVID-19 tests for travel, Only 4% of travelers rescheduled or changed their plans as a result of a positive reporting outcome. And only 2% of travelers who tried (or went with someone who tried) did well during a trip – according to our previous research data.

For those alert tourists booking plan A a papa B? Only 5% of travelers said they would have planned a return trip if their original plan had been canceled. (So… is the place no in the form of travel arrangements.)

What is the impact of the Omicron model on the new journey?

While 36% of travelers said their travel arrangements were not affected by Omicron, 21% said they would not make arrangements because of Omicron.

We look at those who have been affected by travel planning in a new way:

  • 19% said they rearranged their plans, changed their destination, or changed their planned travel activities.
  • 16% of them said required cancel arrangements (due to travel restrictions, personal illness, or otherwise)
  • 14% very full to end due to concerns about Omicron

Of those who changed or canceled a trip because of Omicron, more than two -thirds (68%) did not lose money. For the rest of the trips that changed or ended plans, the majority (12%) lost between $ 100- $ 500.

2022 travel forecast: air travel readiness during high crisis

Looking forward to next year, we asked travelers about the types of trips they plan, how they plan to get there (and when), and how Satisfaction of their perception of the state of the disease.

Of the types of planned trips, 84% of people plan a vacation, 74% plan to visit family and friends, and 43% plan to travel for business. Here are the three main reasons The trips told us it was October.

For how and when people plan to travel:

  • 54% said they plan to fly into the US in March; 73% in June
  • 41% said they were planning a road trip with their own car in March; 60% in June
  • Only 16% said they plan to fly Earth by March; 33% in June

Although this new data shows a decline in global travel efficiency from six months agoThis is the first time more Travelers said they plan to travel home by plane rather than by car inside More than a year.

Our data also shows how well travelers feel about flying. When we asked people how comfortable they felt about going about their daily lives, most people (73%) enjoyed flying – even more so than flying. going to a wedding or going to the gym.

What are your worries about the trip?

Although most respondents said they were comfortable with the flight—Only 8% said they did not enjoy flying—There are some worries about when they will leave.

According to our data, 38% of travelers said they would be worried about ending or changing their trip at the last minute due to COVID-19 requirements, limits, or restrictions. Sick. This is consistent with Research data we released in October.

Nearly a third (31%) spoke about the limits of the trip, the rules, and the requirements that apply to them. This concern has decreased slightly (below 4%) since October. And 30% of travelers said testing positive for COVID-19 and not being able to return home was a concern.

Despite these concerns, our data shows us that what people expect to go wrong with their future travel plans is not consistent with the reality of the current trip. Yes, problems and delays are an insurmountable part (illness or otherwise), but the presentation of our data encourages that. too much Travelers are unaware of the wide delays and delays; meeting non -motorized vehicles; need to rearrange or change their settings based on a good COVID-19 report; Nor will money be lost on travel plans that have been changed or expired.

The disease is growing at an end time, we hope to see the minds of travelers (and readers) continue to grow – and for fear it will continue.

Action: TripIt surveyed about 1,300 users in the U.S. to understand their new travel plans, as well as their travel plans for the coming year. The research was conducted in February 2022.
