Curious to see how Americans really feel about holiday travel and their plan for holiday gatherings? We were too. Thanks to a recent study from Savanta surveyed 1,000 Americans and asked Americans how they feel about holiday travel and their plan for holiday gatherings.

From the study, it looks like a lot of people will be traveling by car and gone longer than 2 days. I guess with the pandemic, people want to spend as much time with family and friends as possible.
