Summer is coming—so where are Americans headed this year?

A survey conducted by our friends at Allianz Global Assistance revealed that some familiar destinations will once again top the list for American travelers this summer. Orlando and Cancun will welcome the most people between May 29 and September 4, coming in at number one among domestic and international spots respectively.

Where are Americans traveling this summer?

As seen above, Orlando (8.64%) is followed on the domestic list by Las Vegas (4.74%), Honolulu (4.37%), Los Angeles (3.65%), and Seattle (3.37%). On the international side, Cancun leads the way by a large margin—and in fact eight of the top ten spots are located in Mexico or the Caribbean. London and Paris, ever the draws for Americans (even amid terrorism fears), finished at six and ten respectively.

Also worth noting is the survey’s finding that most of the planned trips to Orlando (90% of trips) and Cancun (92% of trips) include bookings by two or more travelers together.

“Our statistics showed that Americans are more likely to travel in groups this summer, and for those traveling with children, family travel insurance is worth considering,” said Daniel Durazo, director of communications for Allianz Global Assistance USA. “Traveling can be unpredictable, especially with little ones. Insuring vacation costs for a party of five, six or seven can offer financial relief and peace of mind when travel plans go awry.”
