Despite the stalling of international travel amid the pandemic, more and more travelers are looking to plan trips in 2021, according to new data from travel insurance aggregator Squaremouth.
About 65 percent of all trips booked this year for 2021 are to international destinations, with a major Caribbean component, the company said.
Mexico tops the list, replacing the domestic U.S. as the top destination for the first time since COVID-19 began.
And the country is followed by five Caribbean destinations: Aruba, The Bahamas, the US Virgin Islands, Aruba and Jamaica.
Squaremouth’s data is based on all travel insurance policies purchased through its portal from March through Aug. 15, 2020, for travel in 2021, according to the company.
