Report Details Airfare Pricing Trends, Emerging Destinations and Traveler Priorities
ARLINGTON, Va. – November 16, 2020 – Airlines Reporting Corp. (ARC), in collaboration with Expedia.com®, today released the 2021 Travel Trends Report, which analyzes extensive travel data from Expedia and ARC to uncover key search and booking trends for travelers.
Top insights in the report include money-saving strategies for purchasing travel, evolving traveler priorities, and trending destinations in key global markets.
“What we learned by looking at traveler behaviors in a year as unusual as 2020 is that travel will always be an integral part of our lives,” says Christie Hudson, Senior PR Manager for Expedia brand. “Travelers responded to the uncertainty and restrictions by finding ways to safely explore closer to home, and the result is a bigger emphasis on flexibility and a list of trending destinations that are inspiring and attainable for the year ahead.”
“It’s no secret that air travel changed this year in ways we have never seen before, but people are still flying, and they will continue to fly. We are keeping a close eye on these changes to help travelers get the most from their journeys,” said Chuck Thackston, Managing Director of Data Science and Research for ARC. “Expedia and ARC are teaming up again to get to the bottom of what’s truly changed and equip travelers with new trip-planning insights to use when they do fly again.”
