Why 3 in 4 prefer road trips over flying

  • last month
Nearly three-quarters of Americans prefer driving to their vacation destination over flying, according to new research, commissioned by Michelin for Distracted Driving Awareness Month in April, and conducted by OnePoll.

A recent poll of 2,000 American drivers found that the open road is the best way when embarking on an adventure.

So what makes driving the most popular option? Road trip veterans reported the best things about road trips include seeing new landscapes (50%), listening to music (43%), getting a break from their routine (26%) and enjoying the feeling of driving (25%).

In fact, only 22% of respondents will opt to fly rather than drive when going on a trip.
