Travelocity and Thrifty Car Rental name summer 2021 the official season of family reunions and give away two $25,000 road trips

DALLAS, May 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- With many looking forward to vacationing with family again after a year in pandemic-mode, Travelocity® teams up with Thrifty Car Rental® to take two family reunions on the road. Starting Monday, May 17, 2021 at 12:01 a.m. EST, customers will be asked to submit a short essay on why they want to take their family on a road trip of a lifetime to win an all-expense paid trip for the entire family, worth up to $25,0001, this summer.

Travelocity teams up with Thrifty Car Rental to take two family reunions on the road.

As more of the country opens up and travel demand increases, Travelocity followed up on its 2021 Pandemic Travel Survey to understand American's feelings toward travel entering the warmer months ahead. When asked what they miss most about pre-pandemic travel, 63% of those that have yet to travel since the start of the pandemic said they miss socializing with family most.2 Further, 43% of total respondents are looking forward to planning a trip to visit family outside of their households.

"It's very clear that Americans are aching to meet with their loved ones again, so we're very focused on making sure this happens safely and smoothly for our customers," says Katie Junod, General Manager at Travelocity. "If we've learned anything from this past year, it's that families are incredibly tough and resilient. We're excited to partner with Thrifty to provide families some much-deserved relief."

The survey also found that 69% of respondents plan to travel within the next 9 months and the summer-favorite activity of road tripping continues to trend. In fact, 60% of travelers plan to drive to their destinations by car.

"People are making the most out of this summer and we continue to see increasing demand for car rentals. It's only natural for us to work with Travelocity to create a unique, once-in-a-lifetime road trip experience for the entire family, and ultimately reward our customers," says Eoghan Slye, Senior Vice President of Brand Marketing at Hertz.

Contest ends Monday, May 31, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. EST. Two winners will be selected by Travelocity and Thrifty Car Rental, and will be notified via email in early June. Each winner will be able to invite up to nine family members to join them on a road trip to pre-determined itineraries around Central and Southeastern Texas or the American Southwest.
