The travel insurance and assistance company Allianz Partners analyzed more than 1.6 million flight itineraries* between five and eight days in length for travel booked between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day and found that 73% of the itineraries reviewed were for U.S. domestic trips and 27% of travelers are headed abroad.

Once again Orlando is the number one domestic location most Americans are heading too, with Cancun in Mexico tops for international travel.

The survey revealed that for international trips, the trip length favored by a majority of travelers (59%) is seven days, and the highest volume of travelers departs on Saturdays, May 27, June 10 and June 17. Domestically, trip lengths of six (49%) and seven (48%) days split the schedule, with Saturday, July 1st as the most popular departure date ahead of the nation's Independence Day holiday.

The data of U.S. travelers' 2023 Summer Travel plans was gathered by analyzing the number of customers that went through the online booking process of airfare and package paths for partners offering Allianz Global Assistance travel insurance, to generate itineraries for roundtrip flights departing from U.S. airports during the Summer Travel season from 5/26/2023 – 9/5/2023 for trips between 5-8 days in length. In total, 1.6 million itineraries were analyzed using this methodology.
