A new survey from TomTom NV finds that 61 percent of people are planning a vacation getaway this summer, up from 56 percent last year.
“The road trip is alive and well with American travelers – 70 percent of people are planning to travel to their destination by car,” said TomTom, a provider of in-car location and navigation products. The company has major offices in Amsterdam and Concord.
While travel is projected to be up, staying within a vacation budget is a priority for most travelers. TomTom’s survey found that 59 percent of people will spend less than $1,200 in total on their vacations, the company said in a press release.
