MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – One year since the start of the pandemic, there are still a lot of questions about traveling. So as families finalize their spring break plans, many are choosing to forgo flying in favor of hitting the road.
TSA reports that people are flying about half the amount in March of 2021 compared to March of 2019, before the pandemic began. Meanwhile, traveling by RV hit an all-time high for Americans in 2020, with little signs of slowing down.
Last year, Jason Sprayberry lost $20,000 worth of canceled RV rentals in his side-business as customers were unsure about any travel in the new pandemic. Fast forward a year, and he’s quit his day job and now manages four times the number of rentals, trying to keep up with demand.
