Americans are Skipping a Summer Vacation This Year
USA – According to a new survey by Bankrate of almost 2,600 adults, over one in four Americans have already decided to forgo a summer vacation this year, and another 22% remain undecided.
The biggest reason some are opting to skip a trip this year? They can’t afford it: A full 60% of respondents who say they’re not taking a summer vacation point to that as the reason why. Almost half, 44%, say day-to-day bills are the biggest hurdle. That’s not too surprising given that over half of Americans in a recent survey said they wouldn’t be able to cover a $1,000 emergency.
If you’re undecided or think you can’t afford it . . . it’s not too late: whether it’s through budgeting or through getting the right credit card, there is still time to take a great trip this year.
