Travel data company Arrivalist is predicting that Americans will take 36.8 million road trips over the Fourth of July weekend, making Independence Day the biggest road trip event so far for 2020.

Compared to AAA’s travel prediction last year, road trip travel will be down 11% from the just over 41 million travelers AAA predicted in 2019.


Arrivalist’s Daily Travel Index is a daily measure of road trip activity (trips by car over 50 miles) taken by residents of all 50 U.S. states, with volume indexed against a baseline of activity established just before the COVID-19 pandemic.
