When given the ultimatum to choose between their mobile phone or a travel companion to bring on their next trip, one-third (33 percent) of Americans said they would choose to travel solo with just their device.

Two-thirds of respondents agree they prefer the freedom of traveling alone and meeting new people over the desire to have a vacation companion. Younger travelers (83 percent of Gen Z and 80 percent of Millennials) are especially likely to agree. Less than 40 percent of the respondents Expedia surveyed identified themselves as parents, and of those, nearly all of them (82 percent) agree they too would prefer to travel alone.
