Transcript for Summer 2020 vacation plans look different from past summer
Summer vacation looks different for many of us. Millions of Americans are finding new and unique ways to safely hit the road and have some fun. Gio Benitez is back with more of the latest vacation trends. Hello again, gio. Reporter: Hey, will. Yeah, a lot of people just want to take their summer vacations no matter what and airbnb tells us most of their bookings are within 300 miles of a person's home so a lot of people are staying local and they're staying away from the big cities. This morning, summer travel unlike any other year, millions hitting the road and heading to rural destinations like mountain regions for hiking and exploring, in other words, away from large groups of people in urban areas. We've never seen anything like this. Reporter: Heather greenwood-davis is a national geographic contributing writer. A lot of people are going to cabin, going to rural areas. Yeah, for sure, so things like dude ranches or short-term rentals or national park, places where you can be socially distant without thinking too hard about it. Reporter: Airbnb telling us 20% of all bookings this weekend are rural areas, cabins among the most searched on the site. A huge shift from this time last year. Vrbo seeing similar trends. It takes a change of mind-set but there are still a lot of options for people interested in going. Reporter: And this summer more people are turning to rvs. This family is on a road trip right now. We decided to take an rv because we thought it would be the safest way to travel and be an awesome adventure. Reporter: Rental companies seeing a huge spike in customers in we're up 1600% so 16 times. Today actually is the biggest booking day in the history of the company. Reporter: Another company outdoorsy even sets the camper up for you. And airlines are also recognizing this trend. They're actually adding flights to places like aspen, Colorado, bangor, Maine, Jackson hole, Wyoming. Guys, people just want to be outdoors this summer. We definitely know that feeling, gio. That's for sure. Thank you so much.
