With the United States now over six months into the coronavirus pandemic, we’ve grown accustomed to the new normal. We’re adapting how we work and learn, socialize with friends and family, and yes, even travel.
According to research conducted by tourism marketing company MMGY Global, the clamp down on travel due to the Covid-19 crisis, created strong pent-up demand for travel. This is expected to result in a travel boom this fall. Given the increasing popularity of working and studying remotly, working age adults and school age childrens can travel while still attending to their work and academic obligations.
Approximately 64 percent of survayed people expect to take one leisure trip within the next six months. This is unsurprising when considering credit card expert LendingTree’s research that 72 percent of Americans did not take a summer vacation this year, and that 44 percent of working Americans have yet to use any of their annual paid time off.
As the list of destinations allowing entry to American visitors continues to change, many travelers have their eyes set south of the border, where U.S. citizens have been permitted since June. In particular, many are heading to Los Cabos. The west coast destination is wildly popular among Americans, who make up a whopping 90 percent of their more than 3 million annual tourists. Cabo’s visitors are loyal, too: 70 percent of tourists are repeat guests, and 20 percent visit four or more times a year.
