Most U.S. Travelers Go It Alone

Flying solo? You're not alone. According to a new study by Sojern, 79% of U.S. travelers booked their trip alone while just 2% booked for four or more people, Skift reports. Those that book alone are much more likely to be traveling for business while those booking for four or more people tend to be leisure travelers (no surprises there). But U.S. travelers seem to have a work-hard, play-hard mentality these days with 52% of travel for leisure purposes and 43% for business. The study also found a disparity in what travelers most search for versus what they actually book. Destinations like Orlando and Fort Lauderdale were among the most-searched destinations. However, neither appeared in the top ten most-booked spots. On the flipside, top-booked destinations Houston and Philly didn't make it onto the most-searched destinations. What do you think? Do you book on your own more for business or leisure?
