The COVID-19 pandemic has changed life in many ways, including vacation plans. Despite the pandemic’s effect on every aspect of our lives, families are still making the most of their home life with vacation plans and getaways. According to Vrbo data, the latest family travel trend is the “flexcation.”
Families rent vacation homes later in August, September, and October because the have more flexible work arrangements. They could work remotely, go to school remotely, and mix work and play. They are planning and choosing getaways for a change of scenery. The summer doesn’t end at Labor Day. Families are extending their summer lifestyle with flexcation, and vacation rental hosts are benefitting from these increased booking demand.
