Choice Hotels Reveals 2015 Travel Trends

    Choice Hotels International has revealed the findings from its 2015 travel trends survey. As the economy continues to improve, Americans are planning to spend 8 percent more on leisure travel, and 5 percent more per trip than they did in 2014. Millennial leisure travel spending will increase by 6 percent, spending for families traveling with children will increase by 5 percent, and senior spending will increase by 33 percent. However, leisure travelers are still searching for the best deals, as 62 percent said the most influential factor when selecting a leisure travel destination was budget. The survey also found that more than 40 percent of American travelers regularly stay at mid-price hotels when traveling for leisure, spending an average of $115.94 per night.
