Travel features heavily in New Year's Resolutions

More than a third of people have made travel a part of their New Year's Resolutions.

A study by European travel metasearch engine, Jetcost, has revealed that 34 per cent of Americans have made travel plans and goals already this year as part of their resolutions.

A large proportion of Americans are keen to travel abroad this year, with the biggest reason (29 per cent) being that they haven't travelled abroad before whilst 23 per cent admitted they wanted to get out of the United States for their break this year. And 16 per cent people are keen to see more of the world, hence why looking at an abroad destination.

And Japan is top of the list for destinations that Americans want to visit in 2020, with one fifth (20 per cent) of those surveyed admitting they'd love to visit the Asian country, with Great Britain following close behind with 19 per cent. Canada was in third place with 16 per cent.

A Jetcost spokesperson said in a statement: "New Year's Resolutions can be easy to make, but sometimes hard to stick to, so it is often best to set yourself an achievable goal. Traveling more is a great target to make, and vacations are a perfect way to take your mind off work and other things. You don't have to leave the comfort of the States to go on vacation though; there are so many different things to see and do right here within the 50 states."
