Another peak of coronavirus cases seemed to be behind us when we entered August in the U.S. Many universities opened for classes and sent a wave of parents delivering children to campuses. August seemed to be poised to be a minor travel boost from July. Yet the number didn’t change much.
According to our August U.S. travel tracker survey, 36% of Americans traveled in August, barely one percentage point increase from July. This is despite the fact that consumers were less fearful of the virus, with 50% of surveyed consumers saying they were very concerned about the coronavirus, dropping from 57% in July.
In this report, we highlight new trends in travel incidences, consumer sentiments and future travel intents distilled from our August Travel Tracker survey.
