Recently, The American Traveler survey was conducted online within the United States by Harris Interactive on behalf of Expedia from February 16-20, 2012 among 2,262 adults ages 18 and older.

This study, combined Expedia’s data, reveals a lot about how Americans are traveling in today’s economy.  The data shows that even though travelers are taking fewer flights, they are booking more hotel nights.

The American Traveler is proving to be resilient in a down economy, by driving instead of flying and taking more frequent, shorter trips. The study also showed how important friends and family were to the travel experience.
