Americans are still traveling this summer despite the escalation of COVID-19 cases. International trips are on hold, but domestic travel is showing a steady increase, shows research from Squaremouth, a travel insurance comparison site. The site found a 19 percent increase in the number of U.S. travelers this year.
“This increase in domestic travel is encouraging”, says Megan Moncrief, CMO of Squaremouth.com. “We are happy to report that more travelers are exploring the US this year.”
Travelers are also spending approximately the same amount as last year. The average trip costs approximately $3,947 in 2020.
Even though many travelers are staying closer to home this summer, they are looking to protect their vacations with travel insurance. A cancellation-style travel insurance policy can provide travelers peace of mind as well as important medical coverage.
