Around a third of Americans enjoy two to three vacations per year.
Meanwhile, as Statista’s Anna Fleck reports, just over a quarter have not traveled for non-business related trips at all in the past 12 months, and around a fifth of respondents have traveled once.
Six or more vacations, on the other hand, were rarer.
This is according to the latest Statista Consumer Insights survey, carried out between July 2022 and June 2023 – a period in which the tourism industry saw the greatest recovery to pre-pandemic levels.
