InsureMyTrip crunched some figures and unlocked the hottest destinations being crossed off travelers’ bucket list for 2017. Here’s the scoop on where more Americans are headed next year:
- South Africa
- New Zealand
“There is a surprising uptick in travelers heading to more remote and exotic destinations next year — with India, New Zealand, Israel and South Africa making our top list,” says InsureMyTrip Travel Editor Julie Loffredi. “However, many travelers still prefer choosing calmer locations and trips closer to home with Mexico dominating our rundown.”
The results also suggest England and France will make a comeback in 2017 with a boost in expected visitors following a downturn in 2016.
To compile the list, a team of data scientists at InsureMyTrip analyzed online traffic and transactions for travel insurance in 2017. Cruise data was excluded from the results.
