Domestically, Orlando, Maui and Honolulu were the top three destinations, the same as in 2019 (in 2020, Orlando, Las Vegas and Los Angeles were the top three). Hawaii performed well overall, with Kauai and the Big Island ranking Nos. 7 and 8, respectively.

Internationally, Cancun kept its place in the No. 1 spot. It was followed by San Jose Del Cabo, Mexico, and Aruba in positions No. 2 and 3, unchanged from 2020. In 2019, Aruba was No. 2 and San Jose Del Cabo was No. 3. The rest of this year's top international destinations were in the Caribbean or Mexico.

Allianz said it appears travelers are opting for longer destinations. In total, 59% of travelers were taking seven-night trips and 37% were taking six-night trips. In 2019, four-night getaways were the most popular at 30%.
