Following an all-time high in 2015, the incidence of leisure
travel among U.S. adults declined somewhat in 2016, and Americans spent less on
travel and took fewer trips, on average. Despite the drop, however, more U.S.
travelers stayed in a hotel in 2016, and more now seriously consider private
accommodation options than in the past. The growing millennial traveler segment
is increasingly influential, and more travel shopping, planning and booking has
shifted to mobile devices.
Based on a comprehensive survey of leisure travelers’
attitudes and behavior, this special collection of reports provides a range of
data and analysis on key aspects of the U.S. leisure travel market.
