RVing and camping ranked as the safest travel options in USA for 2021

The main reasons why Americans are considering an RV trip this summer include:

  • Being outdoors with self-contained accommodations;
  • The ability to avoid crowds and maintain social distancing;
  • No need to quarantine during or after your trip.

“Our survey results show that Americans consider RVing and Camping almost twice as safe as other types of accommodations such as staying in a hotel. We are also seeing that 66% of Americans consider camping in an RV of little to no risk compared with 38% who feel the same way about flying on a plane to a destination,” said David Coletto, CEO of polling firm Abacus Data.

Additional survey insights include:

  • Compared with typical summer vacations, the likelihood to take a road trip this summer is up 6 percentage points, while intent to fly, stay at a hotel, go on a cruise, or even stay at friends or family residences are down.
  • The majority of Americans (52%) consider RVing as one of the only safe travel options during COVID.

“When the pandemic hit in 2020, Americans turned to road trips, camping, and RVing as a safe alternative to the traditional flights and hotels. When families discovered how safe and convenient it was to explore the great outdoors in an RV, word got around,” said RVezy co-founder Michael McNaught. “While safety concerns have pushed a lot of Americans to discover RVing for the first time, it’s the lasting memories that bring them back year after year.”

Travel news latest: Up to 90 per cent of UK summer holiday options sold out

Britons will find fewer than one in 10 UK self-catering holiday options available across some operators this summer as the nation prepares for a post-lockdown staycation boom. 

Just 8 per cent of school summer holiday dates are still available for properties advertised by Oliver’s Travels.  Self-catering property agency Unique Homestays also said 92 per cent of its available dates have been booked up for the summer months.

Meanwhile, the number of August reservations taken by luxury camping specialist Canopy & Stars are up 185 per cent compared with March 2019. Around 30 per cent of its total guest capacity remains for August. 

“Despite record levels of bookings, there is still a chance to book a summer staycation if you are quick and can be flexible with dates and area,” said Mike Bevens, managing director of Canopy & Stars. “Keep an eye out for new places too, we have several brand new places lined up to join our collection in the coming weeks,” he added. 

British families are snapping up domestic breaks following the publication of the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown, under which leisure travel is set to resume in England on April 12. 

International travel will not return until May 17, at the earliest, and foreign holidays are likely to come with the additional hurdles of Covid testing and potential quarantine – and, possibly, vaccine passports

UNC Basketball vs. Florida State: How To Watch, Cord-Cutting Options and Tip-Off Time

UNC is on a three-game winning streak and hopes to make it four in a row when the Tar Heels travel to Tallahassee to face Florida State on Saturday.

One of the reasons for the short win streak has been the improved play from junior Leaky Black, not just as a scorer but as a distributor of the basketball. Black said after UNC’s win against Syracuse that he believes the team isn’t far off from performing at their best level to compete with that upper echelon in the conference.

“We’re right there,” said Black. “Even though we haven’t been winning as pretty as some of our fans would like, I feel like getting these [wins] under our belt says a lot about this team. I feel like we really getting better and we’re right there, we just need to keep striving.”

Tip-Off Time

Tip-off is scheduled for noon from Tallahassee.
