Una encuesta de viajes de vacaciones publicada por The Vacationer sugiere que 112 million American adults will journey far distances to celebrate Hanukkah, Navidad and Kwanzaa, but it’s important to note that the online poll was administered on October 17 – before the Organización Mundial de la Salud identified and named the Omicron variant.
The Vacationer’s updated travel survey for 2021 shows a 13.54% increase in the number of American adults who say they intend to travel to a “vacation destination or gathering” comparado con el año pasado.
If the COVID-19 Omicron variant does not play a factor in holiday travel and The Vacationer’s data stands correct, 12.72% of American adults will travel by plane, 60.7% will travel by car and 3.93% will travel on some form of public transportation.
In terms of how far Americans plan to travel for the December holiday season, more than a third (37.15%) say they’re traveling between one and 99 millas. Nearly one in five (19.3%) say they’re traveling between 100 y 499 millas. Por poco 8% say they’re traveling between 500 y 999 miles or more than 1,000 millas.
Forty percent of these holiday travelers expect to spend $ 500 or less on gas, vuelos, hotels, tickets and other festive events. One in 10 expect (11.07%) to spend between $ 501 y $ 1,000 tiempo 12.26% expect to spend upwards of $ 1,001 on holiday travel.
The Vacationer’s updated holiday travel survey was conducted using SurveyMonkey’s interface and audience, and the data was then analyzed by Eric Jones, an assistant professor of mathematics at the Rowan College of South Jersey.
The survey’s total sample size included 1,092 Americans who are over the age of 18.
Unlike last year, coronavirus vaccines are available in the U.S. to combat COVID-19 and many of its variants. Más que 195 million Americans are fully vaccinated, which is equivalent to 59.3% of the U.S. población.
los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades recommends avoiding unessential travel if you’re feeling sick, have been exposed to COVID-19 while unvaccinated, have tested positive for COVID-19 (independientemente del estado de vacunación) or are waiting for coronavirus test results.
