Recent Trip Bookings Reveal Americans Prepare to Travel Internationally in Early 2021

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Sept. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- International travel stalled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, data from travel insurance aggregator, Squaremouth, shows that 65% of trips for 2021 booked this year, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, are to international destinations.

Travelers Planning International Adventures In 2021

A pent up desire to travel abroad has led the majority of Americans to plan international trips for the beginning of 2021.

  • International destinations account for 86% of all planned trips in January and February 2021.

Travel Restrictions Play a Role in International Destination Selection

Most international trips are booked to destinations that are already accessible to Americans.

  • Mexico is the most popular international destination in the new year, replacing the US as the top destination for the first time since COVID-19 began.

  • Caribbean countries make up the remaining top 5 international destinations - The Bahamas, US Virgin Islands, Aruba, and Jamaica.

Methodology: Data is based on all travel insurance policies purchased through Squaremouth.com between March 12 - August 15, 2020, for travel in 2021.
