Increased Gas Prices Lead To Alternative Vacations

Despite rising gas prices, some travelers still plan to take a summer vacation but with affordable options like InTown Suites

Atlanta, GA, May 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A recent study by Longwoods International reveals that 59% of travelers state rising gas prices will impact or greatly impact their decision to travel in the next six months. Uncertainty continues to grow as economists place a large question mark over the future of gas prices. Forbes explains in a recent article that there are too many factors at play to definitively say what the future will bring for prices at the pump.

Despite the rising costs, many Americans are still planning to take at least one summer vacation in 2022. New survey data from AAA found that while many Americans planned to change their daily habits to account for rising costs, they did not plan to cancel their summer travel plans. More than 50% of Americans are planning to travel this summer, and of those, more than 40% say they won’t change their plans just because of increased gas prices.

For those travelers who still plan to take a vacation in 2022, budget-friendly accommodations are a must. The room rate is possibly the largest cost for a traveler. The more they have to pay for a hotel room or vacation rental, the fewer the activities on their itinerary and ultimately the shorter their stay. With inflation affecting every aspect of a vacation from gas prices to groceries, leisure travel could decline in the coming months.

In an effort to combat rising costs and salvage summer travel plans, InTown Suites offers a vacation alternative. InTown is an extended stay hotel with affordable weekly rates and convenient amenities. Travelers can find 188 InTown locations across the country in some of the top travel destinations like Denver, Orlando, Louisville, Houston, Atlanta, Phoenix and Chicago.

In addition, every property has a limited amount of Premium suites that have been fully renovated and include more storage areas, perfect for family stays! All suites have an in-room kitchen with full-size refrigerator, two-burner stove top, and microwave so you can decide to stay in and save money on meals.
