More Families Predicted to Road Trip for the Holidays
AUSTIN, Texas and AKRON, Ohio, Oct. 1, 2020 -- RVshare, the first and largest peer-to-peer RV rental marketplace, predicts more people will be road tripping to visit relatives for the holidays this year. According to RVshare's Holiday Travel Sentiment survey, almost half of respondents (47%) plan on traveling to visit family with more than two-thirds (68%) reporting they will be traveling by car or RV.
Typically, many families have their holiday vacation plans in order this time of year. Though 55% of people are less confident about their holiday travel plans compared to last year, more than three fourths (80%) of people have already decided they will not be flying over the holidays. In fact, more than half of travelers (53%) would consider renting an RV to visit family and stay in a family member's driveway or nearby campground to social distance.
"This holiday season, RV rentals can be utilized for more than just leisure travel," said RVshare CEO Jon Gray. "RV rentals offer people not only a mode of transportation to go home for the holidays, but also a place to stay in order to social distance."
While festive gatherings may look different this year, RV travel provides more options for those struggling to navigate how to travel for the holidays and an alternative approach to smaller celebrations and upcoming travel plans. The use of RV rentals makes a long drive more comfortable by providing additional space and an in-unit bathroom to help limit public interactions. RV delivery is another great option for families or individuals who may not want to physically drive an RV but are still wanting a private place to stay while home for the holidays.
