ValuePenguin, June 26 2020 – 32% of Americans ‘Definitely’ Plan to Fly Again in 2020

Last Updated:

Some travelers will fly this summer, but most aren’t ready to go international yet

Of those who plan to travel this year, 8% said they have already flown amid the pandemic. And the largest segment of those who plan on flying primarily listed June through September, as opposed to later in the year.

The destinations, however, are split rather widely when it comes to domestic versus international travel: The vast majority (67%) of those who definitely plan to fly again in 2020 will stay within the country, but 16% will travel internationally and 17% will travel both domestically and internationally as they have multiple trips planned for 2020.

According to data from SquareMouth, a travel insurance provider, domestic travel for the second half of 2020 is actually only down 5% in terms of the number of travel insurance policies purchased between March 13 (when the White House instituted the official European travel ban) through June 11 when compared to the same time in 2019. On the other hand, international travel insurance sales dropped by 89% over the same time period.
