You may have heard the term “pandemic fatigue” — or felt it yourself — but some people are taking to the skies to put that feeling to rest.
According to a survey of 2,000 Americans who have traveled internationally, 66% say they’re keen on so-called “revenge travel” — that is, trying to get even for all that lockdown time now that travel is no longer restricted.
In fact, 57% say they went on a “once-in-a-lifetime” trip this year.
The survey, which was commissioned by Exodus Travels, also revealed that 80% of these revenge travelers felt their trips were “good for their soul.” Seventy-seven percent revealed their jaunts made them feel “more like themselves.”
In fact, while 35% had to deal with lost luggage and 31% canceled flights, 84% say their trip was totally worth it — even if they weren’t checking off that bucket list trip. And even more, 85%, say they’d do it again if they could.
All that wanderlust shows no sign of slowing down, either: 80% say they need to vacation in 2023 more than they ever had before.
