US: A recent survey shows that nearly a third of Americans would consider travelling between now and the end of summer, with eight per cent of this group ready to travel now.

The survey, conducted by The Points Guy between May 13-15, shows that National Parks are the most popular destination (44 per cent) followed by the beach (39 per cent).

Accommodation wise, 28 per cent of travellers would opt to stay at a hotel resort and 19 per cent at a home rental.

For those considering travel in the near future, 47 per cent stated they would take an in-state road trip, and 41 per cent said they would take an out-of-state road trip.

One in five would consider a domestic flight, whereas one in 10 would consider flying internationally. However, about 40 per cent of travellers agree that a vaccine for the coronavirus must be available before they feel safe flying again.

Generation Z (aged between 18 and 23) are most likely to travel between now and the end of summer (42 percent) and nearly one in three of millennials (aged between 24 and 39) are open to travelling before the end of summer.

Travellers that earn more than $80,000 per year are also more inclined to travel during this time (40 per cent) compared to those who earn less than $30,000 per year (24 per cent).
