More than half of Americans plan to travel this spring, according to survey findings from the leading vacation rental management platform, and many travelers are beach bound
PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 10, 2022— As the season for Spring Break approaches, Vacasa (NASDAQ: VCSA) teamed up with Allison + Partners to see how many Americans are packing their bags, where they are heading, and what’s motivating their vacation plans. The survey* findings, released today in Vacasa’s 2022 Spring Travel Trends report, unearthed that travel is abloom this season—particularly for remote workers, millennials and parents—and that more people are planning to travel specifically for Spring Break 2022 compared to last year.
In the spirit of spring cleaning, Vacasa also scrubbed its search data to reveal the most popular destinations for vacation rentals this March, including Destin, Florida, and Gulf Shores, Alabama, among other sandy locales. Nearly one-third of travelers are booking vacation rentals for their spring getaways, because of value for money (65%) and/or access to a full kitchen (56%), according to the survey results. Those perks come in handy for the parents of young children, nearly half (49%) of whom say they’re opting for a vacation home as their lodging of choice.
Here’s a first look at a few of the travel trends expected to crop up and take root this season, with the full trend report available on Vacasa.com:
*Allison+Partners Research + Insights surveyed 1,000 individuals over the age of 18 in the United States. The survey was fielded using the Qualtrics Insight Platform, and the panel was sourced from Lucid. Fielding was executed in January 2022.
