As travelers seek new sights, AAA expects family trips abroad to be a hot trend in 2018. Of families who will take a trip this year, 35% plan to visit an international destination, a nine-percentage point increase from just two years ago. Based on advance travel bookings, AAA predicts the top five most likely international destinations for families will be: Cancun, Mexico; Punta Cana, Domincan Republic; Montego Bay, Jamaica; Rome, Italy and Dublin, Ireland.
AAA’s family travel research is the result of a telephone survey (landline and cell phone), consisting of 1,005 adults living in the continental United States. Interviewing for this survey was conducted January 26-28, 2018. The study has an average statistical error of plus or minus 7%.
