Reunited and It Feels so Good: Survey Finds Family Travel a Top Priority for Americans This Year

ORLANDO, Fla. , May 13 /Businesswire/ - Wyndham Destinations, the world’s largest vacation ownership business, announced today the results of its most recent travel trends survey* which indicate vacationing is on the horizon for a majority of Americans this year.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210513005202/en/

In an online survey of 1,005 Americans, produced by independent creative market research agency Atomik Research, 72% of participants said they will prioritize traveling to see family and friends, with three-fourths agreeing they are likely to do so before the end of the year. The survey also found the desire for home-style amenities is higher than ever.

“As more Americans become comfortable with travel again, they’re interested in recreating a home-away-from-home environment that a traditional hotel can’t deliver,” said Melody Bostic Brown, publisher of Destinations magazine and host of the “Vacations Unpacked” travel series, produced by Wyndham Destinations. “It’s not surprising our survey found that the pandemic impacted travel for 81% of people, with 83% of them saying they were unable to see family and friends as often as they’d like last year. Vacation ownership offers travelers desirable accommodations, such as separate bedrooms, dining and living spaces, as well as fully-equipped kitchens and in-suite washers and dryers in most units, making the transition back to vacationing more seamless than ever.”

Additional key survey findings include:

  • Respondents identified the following as top destinations for a family vacation in 2021: Orlando (30%), Grand Canyon (26%), New York City (24%), and Myrtle Beach, SC (24%).
  • Respondents identified the following as top considerations when planning a family vacation: Relaxation (61%), Affordability (58%), Climate (44%), and Accommodations (43%).
  • Seventy-four percent of respondents report having a full kitchen (oven/range, dishwasher, sink, microwave, full size refrigerator, etc.) makes their vacation more enjoyable. Additionally, 69% say having a washer and dryer on-site makes their vacation more enjoyable, with 68% saying getting laundry done on vacation means less chores when they return home.
  • The majority of respondents (82%) said having separate living spaces in their suites allows for more quiet time when needed, while 75% agree that separate living spaces makes family vacation more enjoyable.
