Leisure Travel on the Rise: Deloitte Survey Suggests Consumers Are Warming Up To Memorial Day and Summer Vacations

As summer approaches, temperatures are not the only thing rising. Consumers also appear to be warming up to vacations and road trips, according to a new Deloitte survey. Almost one-third (31 percent) of survey respondents plan to take a leisure trip during the Memorial Day weekend, up from the 24 percent who said they traveled a year ago during the same period. In addition, 17 percent of consumers surveyed expect to take a longer break than they did last year.
