The Pulse: Thanksgiving Celebrations and Travel

November 22, 2022

What’s the plan for Thanksgiving?


In celebration of Thanksgiving, our Big Village CARAVAN team surveyed Americans to discover how they plan to celebrate and travel this year.

An overwhelming 88% of Americans have plans to celebrate this year. The survey reveals that 46% of Americans are traveling over the holiday – and 80% of those traveling are taking to the road in their cars. Plane travel is the second most popular choice at 19%, with 34% of Americans saying they have changed their travel plans because of the higher cost of airline travel.

Read on for more of the findings.
