Traveler confidence report

Travelocity’s most recent poll shows a dramatic increase in travel intentions, indicating traveler confidence is on the rise. Travelocity's second Traveler Confidence Report reveals that nearly half of respondents plan to increase their travel in 2010 as compared to 2009. The Traveler Confidence Report gauges travelers’ plans and attitudes now as compared to six months prior and one year prior. Significantly more respondents (49 percent) plan to increase their travel in the year ahead, compared to 21 percent six months ago and just 10 percent in 2009. Another 44 percent plan to travel "about the same" as compared to last year. The number of travelers planning to decrease travel is down significantly to 7 percent, compared with 34 percent one year ago and 24 percent six months ago.
When asked how lower prices would impact travel plans, 33 percent said they would stay in a higher star-rated hotel; 30 percent said they would take a trip they had not expected to take; and 18 percent said they would extend their stay. The majority of respondents (56 percent) did not have a predetermined travel budget for 2010. Of those with a predetermined travel budget, 34 percent plan to increase that budget. An overwhelming 76 percent of respondents are at least somewhat likely to book a vacation package as a way to save money.
The findings are based on the intentions of more than 2,000 North Americans surveyed by Travelocity and even more let's hope that some of them "good" percent's think of Baja and all the great opportunities here....
