A majority of U.S. travelers plan to spend the same or more on trips during the holidays than what they spent before the pandemic, according to a study from Deloitte LLP. 

Overall, 42% of Americans plan on traveling at the end of the year, the study shows. About 40% of travelers are planning to work while on vacation, with three in four in this group adding at least an extra day to their plans due to the remote-work flexibility. Those who are combining travel and leisure more than twice as likely to stay at hotels and take flights.
