American Travel Sentiment Study - Wave 85
Americans Planning More International Leisure Trips

According to the latest Longwoods International tracking study of American travelers, 39% of them are likely to take an international leisure trip in the next 12 months.  And 34% of those planning international leisure travel say they will take more international trips this year, 50% plan to take about the same number of such trips, while only 16% are planning fewer international trips.

“The expected boost in international travel by Americans is impressive, given lingering concerns about inflation and the financial health of the U.S. consumer,” said Amir Eylon, President and CEO of Longwoods International.  “And it is further evidence that American travelers see COVID-19 fading away in their rear-view mirror.”

Of those planning international leisure travel, 46% said these trips would have no impact on their domestic travel plans, while 54% said they would reduce the number, length or spending on domestic travel.  Thirty-two percent plan to take their international trip in the next two months, 29% in three to five months, while 39% are planning for travel at least six months from now.

The survey, supported by Miles Partnership, was fielded May 8, 2024 using a national sample randomly drawn from a consumer panel of 1,000 adults, ages 18 and over.  Quotas were used to match Census targets for age, gender, and region to make the survey representative of the U. S. population.
