According to findings from Europ Assistance’s 2022 Holiday Barometer, 71 percent of Europeans and 60 percent of Americans are planning a trip this summer, up 14 and 10 percent from last year, respectively.

That puts travel intentions across Europe even higher than 2019, while the U.S. still trails pre-pandemic holiday activity.

A look at average holiday budgets also indicates an end to the pandemic travel lull. While European travelers plan to spend an average of $1,900 this summer (ranging from $1,020 in Poland to $2,922 in Switzerland), American respondents have set aside $2,758 for their summer holidays this year.

These are significant increases over last year’s travel budgets, while still trailing pre-pandemic levels in most cases.
