Summer Travel is Back!

Summer Travel is Back!

One of the most anticipated comebacks of 2021 isn’t an athlete, rock star,
or movie franchise. It’s summer travel, and it appears to be back with a
vengeance.


Travel agents are working 14-hour days to meet the needs of eager
travelers. People aren’t just taking road trips, either; airports are reporting
being at 80% of pre-COVID capacity, while the TSA screenings reached
two million for the first time since the pandemic. While these reports may
be slightly less than pre-COVID, they also reflect an industry working to
meet demand in the midst of new safety requirements, many of which
place limits on the number of passengers and indoor occupancy at airport
gates.1,2


If you’re planning to take a trip this summer, prices for gas and tickets
don’t merely reflect recent inflation, but an increased demand. AAA reports
that hotel bookings in Las Vegas, Anaheim, and San Diego are seeing a
pronounced uptick. Take this into consideration if you are not looking for
population density this year.3


These summer travel stats show an industry in recovery and a nation eager
to get out of the house. Whatever your plans might be, I hope you enjoy
the season and look forward to touching base with you and hearing all
about your travels.
