Interest in US tourism experiences Trump slump
Interest in travel to the USA has “fallen off a cliff” since Donald Trump’s election, say travel companies. Analysts estimate that Trump has cost the US travel industry $185 million in lost revenue.
Travel companies report a sharp decline in flight searches and bookings since the inauguration and the president’s recent controversial travel ban.
Data released this week by search engine Kayak show a 58% drop in searches for flights to Tampa and Orlando from the UK, for example, and a 52% fall in searches for Miami. Searches for San Diego are down 43%, Las Vegas 36%, Los Angeles 32%.
This has not yet impacted flight prices, but Kayak has found a knock-on effect on average hotel prices, which are down 39% in Las Vegas and 32% down in New York City.
The Global Business Travel Association estimates that the Trump slump has cost the US travel industry $185 million in lost revenue.
Flight app Hopper released research that shows how flight demand to the US has fallen in 94 of 122 countries. One notable exception is Russia, where flight search demand to the US is up 88%.
