Many travelers are taking advantage of the abundance of travel deals currently available. The recession notwithstanding, American travelers continue to take trips for leisure purposes, but they have become more resourceful. Travel agents are good at securing travel deals and vacation packages.
60 percent of the travelers who took part in the poll said they had taken a vacation only because they found good travel deals. More than two thirds of the travelers in the survey said they were subscribers to newsletters on travel deals. Of those, 81 percent subscribe to between one and five newsletters with travel deals, and 19 percent receive more than six.
Most Americans are simply not prepared to relinquish time away from work each year, even if it means they have to look harder and wait longer to find good travel deals.
