Travel demand for the Caribbean continues to rise amid the pandemic, according to a new report from travel insurance platform Squaremouth.
While international travel has unsurprisingly decreased, the Caribbean is taking a larger share of international travel demand in the US market, the company said.
Of the 20 most popular international destinations right now, seven are destinations in the Caribbean, according to Squaremouth, which complied the report based on data from trips booked in 2020.
The company’s data was based on travel insurance policies booked through Squaremouth, comparing sales trends since the start of the pandemic to data from the immediate months – and year – prior.
“Caribbean countries that remained open to US tourists skyrocket in popularity,” the company said.
