Travel Finishes First

‘Revenge travel’ bookings up in 2021 as COVID cases drop

6 min read

Trending on the internet lately is the newly coined buzzword “revenge travel.”

Revenge on whom, exactly? COVID-19 and the lost year of 2020, of course.

Honeymoons and family trips postponed, adventurous excursions canceled. Funerals and births a plane ride away left unattended. People want revenge. And it looks like they might get it on Caribbean beaches, by the Eiffel Tower, or in trekking through a mountain range several countries away. 

“People feel like their travel wings were clipped,” said Cyndi Zesk, vice president of travel services at AAA Northeast. “Now it’s like, ‘I have the right to roam again, so I’m going to make it matter.'”

Dillon Guyer, a travel agent in Seacoast New Hampshire, has many trips planned for the next several months, including a few cruises.

Vaccination rates are increasing, and states and countries have begun to relax their travel restrictions. The European Union, for example, just announced this week that fully vaccinated Americans may be able to travel across the pond this summer

As a result, the coming months and years will likely see a major surge in travel – first  domestically and then internationally – as people try to make up for lost time.
