Summer travel: Almost half haven’t booked, most haven’t saved

Feel like you’re behind on your summer vacation planning? You are not alone.

According to a new survey by HomeAway, 44% of U.S. adults planning a summer getaway haven’t booked their trip.

A majority — 72% — haven’t saved for their vacation. Many travelers plan to use money they received from an additional job, work bonuses, or tax refunds to pay for their summer escape, the survey found.

The most popular getaways are:

  • Florida panhandle
  • Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
  • Maui
  • Orlando
