What are your travel plans for the holidays?
46% - Just staying home
6% - Less than 25 miles
6% - Less than 100 miles
42% - Planes, trains and automobiles
In our poll before Thanksgiving, we asked about your travel plans for that holiday. Over 60% said they were just staying home, 35% were travelling less than 100 miles and 15% chose “planes, trains and automobiles,” my option for significant travel.
In last week’s poll, we asked the same question about the rest of the holidays. A few less this time said they were either just staying home or travelling less than 100 miles - 46% and 12% respectively. The balance, 42%, was made up by those who chose “planes, trains and automobiles.”
Obviously, three holidays in less than two weeks - Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year’s Day - provides more time and motivation for longer travel plans to do what holidays are all about: celebrating and building memories with family and friends.
