American Travel Sentiment Study - Wave 66

Post-pandemic, travelers are seeking a work/life balance

According to the latest Longwoods International tracking study of American travelers, as the pandemic recedes, two thirds of them are focused on finding a balance between their work worlds and their non-work life.  And more than half of them are less likely to do work on their leisure trips than they did during the pandemic.

“With the stress of the pandemic waning, we are seeing a new normal for travelers, one that values leisure travel as a break and escape from the work world,” said Amir Eylon, president and CEO of Longwoods International.  “And we know from many of our previous surveys during the past three years that being with family and friends is a key motivator of leisure travel planning and decisions.”

The decline in both COVID-19 cases and gas prices have reduced the impact of both factors in travel planning.  Only 17 percent of travelers say coronavirus will greatly impact their travel decisions in the next six months, the lowest level since March of 2020.  And 23 percent say that gas prices will greatly impact their travel in the next six months, down from 43  percent in July.
