After months of quarantine, people are eager to explore their own backyards and rediscover the joys of domestic travel.
Travel restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic have put a halt to many of our vacation plans. Now, with an end to quarantine orders looming on the horizon, travel within the United States is expected to make a resurgence. As people book flights and plan road trips, they must remember that safety and health protocols are still in place and should be adhered to.
The domestic air industry has experienced significant losses since the start of the global health crisis. According to the Airline Industry Association, passenger airlines lost over $11 billion in domestic revenue during the first two months of the pandemic. With the end of quarantine, this number is expected to decline.
Demand for rental cars is also expected to increase as more and more travelers look for alternatives to air travel. This is good news for national car rental companies, who were significantly impacted by the pandemic. Many companies are increasing their fleet sizes to handle the anticipated influx of customers.
The revival of the domestic travel industry is great news for many sectors of the American economy. Tourism and hospitality businesses such as hotels, restaurants, and tourist attractions are likely to see a surge in customers. These businesses are taking extra precautions to ensure customer safety and provide a healthy and enjoyable travel experience.
Overall, the end of quarantine is expected to reinvigorate domestic travel. There will undoubtedly be some bumps along the road, but travelers can look forward to a safe, enjoyable, and socially distant vacation.
