1 in 4 Americans are willing to travel immediately, once COVID-19 travel restrictions lift, states a survey by Mower.

With travel suspended due to COVID-19, most Americans are expected to undertake “travel-related activities” roughly after two months of restrictions being lifted. 73% of respondents would vacation by car 60 days after restrictions are lifted. Around the same time, over 50% would fly domestically.

Only 42% are expected to travel internationally. Further, 50% of those polled could stay in hotels or privately owned rentals like Airbnb and visit a theme park, after two months.

Upon lifting of restrictions, 28% of respondents would take a road trip immediately. Another 18% plan on spending a night in a hotel around then. 22% of participants said they would never travel internationally again.
