Many people are planning to head away to mark the annual event, especially since nearly two thirds (61 per cent) of Americans had their plans rescheduled or cancelled in 2020.
However, now the world is opening up a little more, over half (55 per cent) are keen to get away when they can, with plans to have at least one holiday of three days or more by the end of the year.
Meredith Mitts, spokesperson of AAA’s Auto Club Group, said: "The entire travel experience has been transformed by COVID-19. If you’re considering travel sometime this year, it’s more important than ever to do your due diligence ahead of any trip to ensure it is safe and enjoyable. As vaccines help boost consumer confidence to begin traveling again, we have to remember that wearing masks and social distancing are still a requirement ... Vacations are an investment in memory making. COVID-19 reminded us that safeguarding those investments, where possible, is important. We recommend anyone considering making a trip seek the expertise of a trusted travel agent. They are an invaluable resource for travellers navigating evolving travel and public health guidelines."
