Spring Break is approaching, and many (most) Americans with Spring Break plans have their trips booked. So where are they headed?
An analysis of four million-plus trips by our friends at Allianz (with whom I have an annual travel insurance plan) revealed that Orlando, Fl. (domestic) and Cancun (international) are the top Spring Break destinations in 2017. Domestically, Orlando (8.62% of all trips) was followed in popularity by Las Vegas (5.29%), Phoenix (4.38%), and Fort Lauderdale (4.13%). Outside the U.S., Cancun is by far the most popular landing spot, with 16.73% of all surveyed trips booked there. After Cancun, it’s Cabo San Lucas, Mexico (5.27%); San Juan, Puerto Rico (4.84%); and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic (4.74%).
The full top-10 lists are below:
Perhaps even more helpful is the data on what dates Americans will be traveling for Spring Break—so, what dates you should plan to see the most congestion at airports. A full 10% of the trips Allianz analyzed (domestic + international) will depart on March 11, 2017. Travelers, take note!
