Spring Break Travel

After analyzing more than 3.4 million flight itineraries for Spring Break trips between five and eight days in length, the travel insurance and assistance company found that 76% of the itineraries are for domestic travel and 24% are for international trips. The company also identified that Americans are spending an average of $4,681 on their Spring Break travels, marking a 7.9% increase in spending compared to the same period in 2023 ($4,339).

Travelers heading out this spring should be prepared for heavier crowds en route to Orlando, Florida (#1), Phoenix, Arizona (#2) and Las Vegas, Nevada (#3) as they round out the top three domestic destinations for 2024. Similarly, cities including New York, New York (#4); Fort Lauderdale, Florida (#5); Los Angeles, California (#6); Miami, Florida (#7); Tampa, Florida (#8); Salt Lake City, Utah (#9) and Fort Meyers, Florida (#10) all are expected to welcome a large number of visitors this spring break. Overall, Florida continues to wear the domestic destination crown claiming five positions within the top 10 chart.

Americans booking travel outside of the U.S. are trading in their mittens and scarves for fruity cocktails and crystal-clear international waters. Nine out of 10 getaways on the international roster were scooped up by warmer, tropical destinations with Mexico's Cancun (#1) and San Jose del Cabo (#2) reigning supreme. After being excluded from 2023's top 10 roster, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic (#3) is back on the charts in a strong third place, and the top 10 is rounded out with Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (#4); Montego Bay, Jamaica (#5); Nassau, Bahamas (#6); Oranjestad, Aruba (#7); London, England (#8); Providenciales Island, Turks and Caicos (#9) and Liberia, Costa Rica (#10).

"Americans are not only headed for warm-weather destinations, but are warming up their wallets in pursuit of unforgettable Spring Break experiences," says Daniel Durazo, director of external communications at Allianz Partners USA.
