Why do poor travelers suffer the most in the time-poor traveler world?
U.S. travelers have been spending less time in the United States than ever before.
They spend less time with family and friends.
And they’re spending less money.
That’s according to the latest figures from the Federal Travel Bureau, released Friday.
Travelers spending less than 30 days in the U.A.E. fell from 17.5% in 2015 to 12.5%, a drop of 7.6%.
In 2018, it was 12.3%.
The biggest decline was among Americans who were visiting family in Europe, where it dropped from 24.9% to 16.7%.
Travelers in South America and Central America are also experiencing an exodus of travelers.
And the number of Americans who have spent more than a year in the world’s poorest countries has also declined.
Traveling alone, the average American spent $13,500 in 2019, down from $16,000 in 2018.
The U.K. lost the most Americans to poverty, with 11,000 Americans in poverty.
That is up from 6,400 in 2016.
China’s rate is also down, but still higher than the United Kingdom.
The biggest drops in spending were among U.Y. citizens.
Spending fell by 6.9%.
The U.N. ranks first in poverty, followed by the U,N.B., the World Bank and the United Nations.
The trend of Americans spending more time in poor countries is not a new phenomenon.
The United Nations reports that since 1970, the number has been trending downward.
