“My Economy” tells the story of the new economic normal through the eyes of the people trying to make it happen, because we know the only numbers that really matter are your economy.
Spring has arrived and, according to Tripadvisor’s Spring Travel Index, more than 53% of Americans plan to travel for the season, despite high inflation. Hotspot destinations include Florida, Las Vegas, Mexico, and New York, among other states.
For Sarah Fazendin, founder of Denver, Colorado-based travel agency Videre Travel, it takes more time to create personalized itineraries and organize travel arrangements for clients. But she and her team remain optimistic for the year ahead. “We see a lot of people coming to us to plan multiple trips at the same time, which is wonderful.”
