Traveler confidence is soaring, according to a new Travel survey, fielded in late June. According to the data, more than three-quarters of Michigan residents (78%) feel more comfortable traveling now than they did three months ago. The top reasons Michigan residents feel more confident traveling include they have received their vaccination - by more than half, 30 percent were more confident in safety measures being implemented, and 23 percent felt more knowledgeable about how the virus spreads. Debbie Haas, Vice President of Travel for the Auto Club Group said "Travel advisors have been inundated with calls from people who want help navigating the growing options for travel. Cruises and guided vacations are fully staffed and typically operating in 2021 with less than full capacity of guests, making a more intimate experience. In addition, these trips are largely inclusive of meals and activities, making it easier to choose a great value for travel in 2021. "
