SURVEY: MOST AMERICANS OPT FOR CAR TRAVEL TO SUMMER DESTINATIONS

NEARLY EIGHT IN 10 Americans plan to travel by car to their summer destination, with the majority citing the enjoyment of driving, according to a recent
survey commissioned by G6 Hospitality, parent company of the Motel 6 and Studio 6 brands. Most travelers prefer hotel stays, though they acknowledge that cost
will influence their travel plans.

The study, surveying 2,000 Americans with summer leisure plans, found that 80 percent distinguish between a “trip” and a “vacation”.

“There’s nothing better than cruising on the highway with the windows down, sun shining and music playing, especially when you’re surrounded by your loved
ones – even those on four legs,” said Julie Arrowsmith, G6 Hospitality’s president and CEO. “Whether you’re the planner or just along for the ride, Motel 6
and Studio 6 provide pet-friendly and affordable lodging so you can relax, enjoy the journey and focus on creating memories.”
