World News – GB – Vacation travel to Florida could be hampered by coronavirus and election fears


Somehow the holiday season is just a few weeks away And although it is normally one of the busiest travel times of the year , many Floridians may choose to stay closer to home due to concerns about the pandemic and the political landscape

According to the AAA’s annual holiday travel forecast for the Auto Club group, about a quarter of Floridians surveyed said they plan to travel for the holidays half less than last year The vast majority (84%) cited the coronavirus as a travel problem

â ???? While many will prefer to stay home over the holiday season, there is a segment of Floridians who are more willing to travel than they were earlier this year, â € “ AAA spokesperson Mark Jenkins said

For those planning to travel, around 70% said they would feel more comfortable in their own vehicle Only 44% of Floridians willing to travel said they would feel comfortable taking a commercial aircraft for their destination

Accommodation is another area Floridians expect to avoid Less than 50% of those open to travel said they would feel comfortable in a hotel or resort, but many said they would prefer a hotel or resort to an AirBnB rental if they had the choice

Most Floridians who travel (45%) have already booked vacation trips, and 21% plan to finalize their plans this month

Early bookings are partly driven by the flexibility of working from home Half of Floridians surveyed said they plan to travel in the fall because of it

Travelers shouldn’t wait until the last minute to book their vacation, â € “ Jenkins said â ???? The majority of vacation travelers will finalize their plans by the end of October. This means fewer options and possibly higher prices for those looking for a last minute flightâ € ”

But this year, there are other reasons why potential travelers might cancel or delay out-of-town plans.The AAA survey found that 21% of those surveyed had interrupted their travel plans due to elections, citing security concerns (50%), political unrest (28%) and economic impacts (27%) as determining factors

If Floridians decide to travel this year, AAA urges all travelers to follow the safety advice of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and work with a trusted travel advisor, â € “ Jenkins said
