Although travel is still looking a lot different than it did pre-coronavirus pandemic, thanks to the vaccine roll-outs Americans are eager to once again take a vacation this year.
All that pent-up travel wanderlust has travel agents across the country suddenly getting very busy! As a result, they recommend we book now for any vacations we want to take in 2021.
“If you are wanting a vacation for any time this year, then you need to plan it, you need to book it, as soon as possible,” Christen Perry, owner of Classic Travel Connection, told 6WBRC. “We are not seeing the number of flights we need, we do not have the amount of airlift to get everybody to where they are going.”
Perry also said resorts and hotels are facing a similar problem, telling 6WBRC, “Not even because they are at a limited capacity, there is just no availability.”
Due to COVID, the way we vacation this year has changed with many choosing destinations offering outdoor activities, or RV vacations and that has our National Parks already getting booked up.
“If you haven’t planned your national park vacation for this summer, it’s not going to happen,” Perry said. “It is so full.”
