Data & Insights: Consumer Attitudes, Priorities and Trends for the Year Ahead

Mar 25, 2021

A year into the pandemic that left many Americans mostly confined to their homes or local communities, how did Americans shift their spending patterns in 2020, which trends are here to stay and what are Americans prioritizing for the year ahead? What is the outlook on family, health, work, activities and, of course, travel?

After nearly a year in relative isolation, the pent-up demand for travel is significant. As COVID-19 cases recede and more Americans have access to the vaccine, people are starting to believe some sense of normalcy is within reach – and they can’t wait for a change of scenery, to reconnect with loved ones, recharge and explore the world. Find out American’s travel expectations for the year ahead, what they are most looking forward to and what is resonating when they are searching and booking for the first real getaway in more than a year. Please reach out to webinars@ustravel.org to access the registration link.
