Cancun maintained its position as the number one summer hot spot for US travelers, according to Airlines Reporting Corp. (ARC).
Tracking the number of tickets purchased of the top ten most booked destinations, Cancun came in first, as it did in 2017. Meanwhile, Orlando bumped New York out of its second-place finish last year, as New York fell to third.
Moving up in popularity this year is Las Vegas, jumping from sixth to fourth place. London held firm in fifth place, while Punta Cana, Dominican Republic dropped from fourth to sixth most booked summer destination. Seattle held its 7th place 2017 spot, while Chicago rose to eight most booked destination, bumping Honolulu down one notch from last year.
Los Angeles rounded out the top ten most booked destinations.
Chuck Thackston, ARC Managing Director of Data Science and Research, said that overall travel this summer is higher than last year, “reflecting the continued strong economic conditions.” He noted, “average ticket prices are also slightly lower in most cases, so taking a vacation continues to be a great value.”
