A recent Travelocity survey found that many Americans are taking a different approach to holiday travel in 2020 — shorter vacations, shorter distances from home to the destination and mostly by car. We wanted to hear from you: If you’re traveling in the next couple months for the holidays, how are you doing so?
“I’m traveling about 5 minutes down the road to Lynn Galindo’s house lol” — Stephen T. Galindo
“We are driving from Plant City to Pittsburgh for Christmas, 16 hours of driving.” — Tiffany Jones
“My work and vacation travel has been extremely limited since the pandemic. We had plans for a family trip to Maui in December and have decided not to go. I’ve not left the state of Florida yet since COVID-19 but have made several short weekend trips mostly to Orlando, and will stay put at home for the holidays.” — Lori DeMello
“I’m a ‘home for the holidays’ kind of gal. With such a big family I stay here for all of our festivities. So that would be by car or golf cart lol” — Jules Burt
In the national survey, one in four respondents have a personal vacation planned and 45 percent of families with children under age 18 are taking a vacation this year. Eighty percent of travelers surveyed who took a trip since the start of the pandemic reported a good travel experience and two-thirds of people with holiday travel plans had already booked November and/or December vacations by early October.
