Studies show that many American families struggle to find the means to take family vacations or have difficulty finding an affordable family vacation package, especially during the holiday season, according to the New York University’s Jonathan M. Tisch Center of Hospitality and the fourth annual U.S. Family Travel Survey conducted by the Family Travel Association.
Dr. Lynn Minnaert, who is a clinical associate professor at the NYU School of Professional Studies, home of the Tisch Center states” “Consistently through the four years of the Family Travel Survey, affordability has been a key challenge for American families, and there is no indication this problem is abating.”
Out of every five American families surveyed, three families say they would take a vacation to a travel destination within the next two year. However, one out of five families say that being able to afford travel costs is a challenge. As the average family vacation costs usually range between $2,500.00 and $5,000.00, many don’t have the financial resources saved to take a vacation without incurring the stress of debt.
Out of 1,724 people who were surveyed with vacation days at work, 58% revealed they were very likely to travel to a vacation destination within the next two years and 21% said they were likely to. 20% were undecided and 11% were unlikey to vacation within the next two years.
Of those not planning to take a family vacation, the main reason was due to not being able to afford it.
However, money is not the only factor preventing wanna be vacationers. Other challenges stem from a lack of knowledge or information on whick vacation offers or travel packages are available.
Time is another isssue. Many families are also very busy. Preparing for a family getaway takes a lot of planning which many don’t have the luxury of having extra time on their hands to travel. Getting a group of people coordinated on the same travel schedule can be a difficult task to accomplish especially as most people are tasked with the busyness of life. It is often a challenge for everyone to find the time in their schedule to travel at the same time.
People also simply do not know the options that exist for vacation getaways. They sometimes think a vacation destination is expensive and they won’t be able to afford it, but this is due to a lack of knowing what is available.
