Who travels more – Democrats or Republicans? According to data recently released by leading online booking site OneTravel, during 2012, residents of blue states booked 2.5 more trips than their red state counterparts.
Among the ten states that booked the most travel, six are blue (California, New York, Illinois, Washington, District of Columbia, and Pennsylvania), while two are red (Texas and Georgia) and two are undecided (Florida and Colorado). Of the ten states which booked the least amount of travel, five are red (West Virginia, Wyoming, Mississippi, South Dakota and Idaho), four are blue (Delaware, Vermont, Maine, and Rhode Island) and one is undecided (New Hampshire).
Other interesting findings include:
• On average, red states spent $46.28 more per booking than blue states
• On average, blue state residents travel in larger groups, with 1.45 persons per booking versus red states at 1.36 persons
