According to a new Access America survey, 10 percent of Americans plan to use their federal tax rebate for travel, creating the potential for a $10 billion boost to the travel and tourism sector as early as this summer.

Interestingly, 10 percent of households making $25,000-$50,000 plan to travel with their extra money, while households earning $50,000 or more came in only one percent higher at 11 percent. Visit www.accessamerica.com.
