  • The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 caused a steep drop-off in tourism to many destinations, but interest in domestic U.S. travel (especially to destinations that can be reached by car) increased in mid-2020 and surveys have shown that this likely to increase further in 2021 once a wider group of Americans is vaccinated.
  • From a September 2020 NYTimes Article:
    • "One AAA forecast released in June put summer numbers at nearly 700 million road trips (a decrease of only 3 percent from last year) with driving accounting for 97 percent of all travel. Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection launched its first-ever road-trip travel insurance. Even New Yorkers bought cars.
    • Since March 2020, gas prices have been significantly lower per gallon than in 2019, according to the federal Energy Information Administration, and many travel operators have leaned into the road trip's resurgence.
    • The pandemic, with its travel restrictions at home and abroad, has forced travelers to look again to their own backyards. From April to June, in three consecutive monthly surveys of about 1,000 respondents, Skift Research found that the top choice for a "first trip," selected by about 40 percent of respondents, has been consistent since April: driving and staying within 100 miles of home.
