As more travelers get vaccinated, they’re looking for ways to safely reunite with loved ones this summer; in fact 72 percent of Americans are planning summer trips, and travel is starting to book up after over a year of putting travel plans on pause. On Airbnb, remote and nature stays are trending with US guests this summer, and searches for international locales are rising as more places start to lift restrictions.
