Travel advisors witnessing an uptick in U.S. clients looking for domestic experiences

Published on : Thursday, July 25, 2019

As growth and expansion in inbound tourism to the U.S. have dropped drastically, Americans are improving the slack, with travel advisors witnessing an uptick in U.S. clients looking for domestic experiences —including some that rival overseas journeys in complexity and depth.

 

Also, recent statistics from U.S. Travel Association’s Travel Trends Index shows that as international travel to the U.S. increased by 1.2 percent in May over the earlier years, domestic tourism increased by 3.6 percent, majority of that coming from the leisure sector. The index forecasts that international travel growth will get sluggish to just 0.4% over the next six months.

 

“Domestic leisure travel has been a solid source of demand for the travel industry over the past several years,” said David Huether, U.S. Travel’s senior vice president for research. “This has been especially important given the impediments to international inbound travel growth.”

 

Presently, the Travel Trends Index does not break out domestic travel by state or region, Huether informed Skift that U.S. Travel at present developing a quarterly index that will provide localized data.

 

A trend for American travelers to travel around their own country doesn’t imply that fewer of them are holidaying overseas. The growth rate in international travel among Americans, nonetheless, is comparatively low. As per the World Travel Trends Report published at ITB Berlin in June, outbound travel during the first eight months of 2018 grew by 8 percent from both Latin America and Asia, 5 percent from Europe, and just 4 percent from the U.S.
