Florida remains the top destination

Florida remains a favorite domestic destination during this time, as it has in previous years too. Many families seek to head to Florida because it has so much to offer. Whether it’s the Disney parks, Universal Studios, or the various beach towns, families can make the most out of their time away without having to leave the country.

This doesn’t mean that Americans aren’t seeking international destinations. With an increase in low-cost carriers and airlines offering their basic economy fares, travelers are heading to more international vacation spots. According to the list, Cancun takes the top spot for travelers. Cancun comes complete with beautiful beaches, nightlife, all-inclusive resorts, and loads of excursions. This is perfect for single travelers and even couples.

“With the rise of international low-cost carriers, traveling to a number of major cities in Europe has become very affordable compared to past years,” said Tom Spagnola, SVP of Supplier Relations at CheapOair in a statement. 

“In some cases, taking a family trip to England or France in March — the off-season for those destinations — may end up being cheaper than a trip to one of the tropical destinations.”

March and April are the months when spring breakers enjoy respite in places and climates different from their college town. Travel insurance provider Allianz Global Assistance analyzed U.S. travelers’ spring break travel plans this year and found that these are the most popular international destinations.

International travel is on the rise and Americans are showing no signs of slowing down: Mexico will see an influx of American visitors as the Spring Break hot spot dominates with Cancun (13.4 percent), San Jose Del Cabo (9.1 percent) and Puerto Vallarta (6.3 percent) taking the top three spots on the list. Other Top 10 International Destinations include Nassau, Bahamas (5.8 percent), Montego Bay, Jamaica (5.1 percent), Aruba (4.8 percent), Providenciales, Turks and Caicos (3.9 percent), London, United Kingdom (3.8 percent, reappearing on the Top 10 list for first time since 2018), Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands (3.3 percent) and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic (2.6 percent).

London is back on the international top 10 list for the first time since 2018, ranking eighth among the most sought-after international locales with 3.8 percent of bookings. Despite its rankings, the U.K. capital makes a strong case for being the world’s best destination.

As for stateside vacations, travelers are jetting off to Orlando (7.8 percent), perhaps thanks in part to new immersive experiences like Walt Disney World Resort’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opening. Following in popularity for domestic Spring Break travel are: Phoenix (5.3 percent), Las Vegas (4.3 percent), Los Angeles (3.9 percent), New York (3.7 percent), Fort Lauderdale (3.7 percent), Fort Myers (3.6 percent), Miami (3.1 percent), Salt Lake City (2.8 percent) and Tampa (2.7 percent).
