Confident travellers

Over half of travellers are more confident about travelling now than they were at the start of the pandemic.

A new survey for the AAA Consumer Pulse has revealed that 55 per cent are more comfortable traveling now than back in March. However, 84 per cent are concerned about travelling for the upcoming festival holidays. And three quarters of people admit they are most comfortable traveling in their own vehicle rather than in public transport to help with social distancing.

And when it comes to air travel, over half (58 per cent) are uncomfortable taking a flight.

Montrae Waiters, spokeswoman for AAA – The Auto Club Group, said: "While many will prefer to stay home this holiday season, some Georgians are more willing to travel than they were earlier this year. Whether that confidence is based on more education about COVID-19 or simply a need to get out, AAA urges all travellers to follow the safety advice of the CDC and work with a trusted travel advisor."

Tiffany Wright, spokesperson for AAA – The Auto Club Group in the Carolinas, added: "While many will prefer to stay home this holiday season, some North Carolinians are more willing to travel than they were earlier this year. Whether that confidence is based on more education about COVID-19 or simply a need to get out, AAA urges all travellers to follow the safety advice of the CDC and work with a trusted travel advisor.”
