Travel Habits of Americans: 42 Percent Aren't Taking a Vacation This Summer
Americans forgo hundreds of millions of vacation days each year and 2017 is shaping up to be no different, according to a recent survey by Skift.
Earlier this month, we asked U.S. adults: Have you already planned and booked your summer vacation? The results aren’t very optimistic — nearly 42 percent of respondents said “I’m not taking a vacation this summer”, the largest percentage.
While nearly 23 percent said “yes, I have planned and booked”, some 35.2 percent also answered “not yet”. Given last-minute booking trends, the percentage of travelers who actually take a vacation this summer would presumably rise well above 23 percent.
