New HomeAway Data Reveals Family Reunions Are Alive and Well

 

 

AUSTIN, Texas, August 15, 2017 – As family reunion season peaks, HomeAway® found that family reunions are still on many people’s yearly calendars worldwide. In fact, more than half (57 percent) of HomeAway’s travelers in the US, France, Germany and the UK said they have attended a reunion within the last two years and most (60 percent)  have traveled more than 100 miles to reach that reunion.

 

Here's a look at the health of family reunions in the US, France, Germany and the UK, according to an online survey of 521 HomeAway travelers in the US, France, Germany and the UK in May 2017.

 

 

“While data shows people are planning trips closer to their dates of travel, family reunions still typically need a 12-month runway to make sure everyone’s schedules are clear,” said Melanie Fish, HomeAway’s family travel expert. “That means now is the time to start planning 2018.”

Here are HomeAway tips for planning the perfect family reunion:
