Survey Says Clients Willing to Spend More on Vacations

After a recent survey, Funjet Vacations uncovered that nearly 90 percent of Americans plan to spend the same or more as they did last year on air and hotel getaways. "Surprisingly, 16 percent of Americans that make the least amount of money--$25,000 or less--are planning the greatest increase in their travel budgets--more than 50 percent than last year," the survey of 1,500 U.S. respondents found. "Approximately 29 percent of those that make the most money--$75,000 or greater--want to spend the same amount on their vacations this year as they did in 2006." The group with the greatest increase in vacation spending plans was 25 to 34 year olds. Too, women plan to outspend men by 25 percent more than last year on air and hotel for vacation. Forty-four percent of men said they plan to spend the same as last year.
