AAA: NEARLY 100 MILLION AMERICANS EXPECTED TO TAKE A FAMILY VACATION THIS YEAR

Written by Elizabeth Davis. Posted in Uncategorized

It is almost time for Spring Break!  According to a recent travel survey from AAA, The Auto Club Group, nearly 100 million Americans – four in 10 US adults – plan to take a family vacation in 2019, slightly more than in 2018. Spring and summer road trips will top many of these families’ vacation plans. 

Two-thirds of all family travelers (68 percent) will go on a summer vacation, while just under half (45 percent) have plans to travel as a family during the springtime.  About half of all traveling families (53 percent) expect to load up their cars for a road trip this year. 

Here is some good news for road trippers – gas prices have averaged nearly a quarter cheaper so far in 2019 compared to the first few months of 2018.  The price at the pump is on the rise now, but summer gas prices are anticipated to be cheaper than last year. 

Travelers in the South are more likely to plan a family road trip this year (62 percent) than travelers in the Northeast (35 percent). 

AAA’s family travel research is the result of a telephone survey (landline and cell phone) consisting of 1,007 adults living in the continental United States.  Interviewing for the survey was conducted in late January.
