July Travel [BEST]

Car travel volume, even with national average gas prices going over the $5 mark, will break previous records as 42 million opt to drive this Independence Day. Recent issues with air travel and ongoing concerns of cancelations and delays may be driving this increase. In fact, the share of people traveling by air will be the lowest since 2011.

Independence Day will be the second busiest since 2000, as travel volumes continue to trend upwards with no sign of slowing down. It is important travelers are prepared and flexible to minimize stress and enjoy the holiday. AAA offers the following advice:

Drivers should expect the longest travel delays heading into the holiday weekend, particularly during the afternoons on Thursday, June 30 and Friday, July 1 as commuters leave work early and mix with holiday travelers. Drivers in major U.S. metros could experience double the travel times compared to a normal trip.

The travel forecast is reported in person-trips. In particular, AAA and S&P Global Market Intelligence forecast the total U.S. holiday travel volume and expected mode of transportation. The travel forecast presented in this report was prepared the week of May 23, 2022.

For purposes of this forecast, the Independence Day holiday travel period is defined as the five days from Thursday, June 30 to Monday, July 4. The five-day holiday length is consistent with previous holiday periods.

Northern parts of Australia get almost no rain as this is the middle of the dry season in the tropical north. Darwin remains hot, with average highs of 86F (30C) and lows of 68F (20C). But, there is practically no rain here in June, July, or August. Humidity is at a low, which most travelers will find more comfortable. Northern Queensland towns are a bit cooler but still warm: Townsville, for example, has July highs of 77F (25C), with little rain.

July is peak season in the tropical north but not in the south. Flights to Australia tend to be cheaper in the winter, but those around Australia won't necessarily be. Book long-distance travel as far in advance as you can. Hotels and resorts in the north, especially at popular destinations like the Whitsundays, are more expensive at this time of year. Those in the south won't be.

Schools tend to take mid-winter holidays in early July for a couple of weeks (these sometimes start in late June). Australians from the south often like to travel north to escape their winter, so you'll likely encounter many domestic tourists in July, especially during the July school holidays.

In general, AAA is advising people to avoid traveling on Thursday and Friday afternoons, June 30-July 1, as commuters leave work early and mix with holiday travelers. In some metro areas, a trip across town could take double the usual amount of time.

The American Automobile Association predicts nearly 48 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more from their homes between June 30 - July 4, a nearly 4% jump from last year and the highest July Fourth weekend travel since pre-pandemic.

The comments from the industry group could serve as a preemptive defense in case airlines again suffer thousands of canceled and delayed flights over the holiday weekend, when travel is expected to set new pandemic-era highs.

Road travel is expected to surge this holiday weekend, according to AAA, a surprise to some experts given high price tags at the pump for oil and gas. The agency expects around 42 million individuals to travel by car between Friday and Sunday, a projected increase of .4% from last year when gas prices were markedly lower.

AAA attributes the slight increase in car travel, in part, to concerns over flight delays and cancellations, as recent holiday weekends have seen scores of flights scrapped last-minute across the country.

AAA is warning travelers planning to drive to their destinations this holiday weekend to expect the most traffic this coming Thursday and Friday as people leave work early and take to the roads in droves.

Though the Transportation Security Administration is not providing passenger volume projections for this holiday weekend, a spokesperson told Spectrum News, past holiday weekends may offer a clue as to what travelers can expect. Currently, TSA recommends travelers arrive the usual two hours before their flight departs for domestic travel and three hours for international travel.

Unfortunately for those traveling by air this weekend, the poor weather may pose challenges yet again for airlines, with the The FAA on Thursday warning Friday afternoon is likely to be most impacted.

US flight cancellations have surged in recent weeks as airlines contend with shortages of available pilots and flight attendants as well as skyrocketing fuel costs. The disruptions have coincided with a spike in demand from customers eager to maintain summer travel plans following COVID-19 pandemic-related obstacles.

The Atlanta-based airline, which had previously blamed the problems on staff calling in sick after catching COVID-19, announced in early June that it planned to cancel 100 flights a day from July 1- August 7 in an attempt to avoid travel disruptions.

These disruptions are clashing with a boom in travel demand, as people are eager to travel after two years of pandemic restrictions. During the July 4th weekend, travel is expected to peak at its highest since before the pandemic.

Consumers may file air travel consumer or civil rights complaints online at They may also mail a complaint to the Office of Aviation Consumer Protection, U.S. Department of Transportation, C-75, W96-432, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE, Washington, D.C. 20590.
