We all know that travel seems to be picking up, and now a survey from TripAdvisor.com confirms that 71 percent of Americans plan to travel in 2022.

“Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, people around the world are excited to travel this year, according to a new survey.

On Wednesday, Tripadvisor published its “Travel in 2022” predictions report, based on Tripadvisor’s own search data and surveys conducted in partnership with Ipsos MORI in five global markets including the U.S., the U.K., Singapore, Australia and Japan. 

Tripadvisor also compared its 2022 predictions with 2019 and found that planned travel in 2022 exceeds actual travel in 2019.

“Despite new variants of COVID-19, consumers across the globe still want to travel and explore,” Kanika Soni, Tripadvisor’s chief commercial officer said in a press release. “Travelers are quickly adapting to local public health conditions, with cleanliness and safety remaining important factors in their planning.”

In its report, Tripadvisor found that 71% of Americans are planning to travel for leisure in 2022, which is up 8% compared to 2019. 

Of the Americans surveyed by Ipsos MORI who traveled in 2019, 29% said “it’s more important now than before the pandemic to splurge on a big trip,” the Tripadvisor press release said.

Tripadvisor also found that around the world, domestic trips are the most popular choice for travelers this year. 

Of the American respondents, 68% said they plan to travel somewhere in the U.S., while 29% said they plan to travel overseas.

Forty-one percent of American respondents also said that planning a trip to somewhere they’ve never been before is more important to them now than it was when they traveled in 2019.”

I’m glad to hear that so many Americans are planning on traveling in 2022. Hopefully the recent news about COVID on cruise ships will lessen and all-inclusive resorts in Jamaica, the Dominican Republic and Cancun will continue to provide a safe, fun vacation.
