Booking.com recently revealed the findings from their survey that shows just how badly Americans want to travel. According to the responses…
68% of Americans would rather travel in 2021 than find true love
70% of Americans would give up their favorite vices if it meant they’d be able to travel in 2021
66% of Americans would choose to travel in 2021 than get a promotion at work
These findings prove that the pandemic hasn’t hindered people’s wanderlust…if anything, it’s actually encouraged people to travel more. The COVID-19 pandemic seems to have shown people how short and fragile life can be, and that no opportunity is worth wasting.
In a statement, Booking.com even said, “Our research also confirms the vital role travel can have in our lives and its power to uplift spirits with 61% of Americans saying they have realized travel is critical to their emotional well-being and 60% saying they have re-evaluated the importance of travel in their life as being more important now than before the pandemic started.”
The online travel agency has also launched a new campaign to help Americans get back out into the world. The travel company will provide a post-travel $50 travel credit to be used for your next adventure. The promotional credit can only be activated by April 30, 2021. Consumers do need to book a stay in the app by May 31, 2021 and complete that stay by December 31, 2021, but they can only access the promotional credit until April 30, 2021
