Other Interesting Facts
There dished out some other interesting travel facts:
- The average adult is expected to spend $6,237 on summer travel this year.
- 47% of travelers worry about money, just behind weather (50%) and topping delays (45%), theft (38%) and illness (33%).
- 35% of people think travel is worth getting into debt for.
- 40% of people have used credit card rewards to pay for at least part of a vacation.
$6,000 ouch. Some people need to do a better job at using miles and points! I am surprised the debt percentage isn’t higher than 35%. I feel like a lot of people put their trips on 0% interest cards and pay them off over the next several months.
It’s Friday so I thought this would be a little fun to kick off the weekend. I hope you enjoyed. Share your thoughts on the list or the interesting facts in the comments section.
