Richmond, Virginia, December 7, 2023 Allianz Partners USA has announced its annual Top 10 Holiday Destinations survey, which found Americans are planning holiday trips to New York City and Cancun, Mexico, as their top domestic and international locations.  


After reviewing over three million itineraries* for roundtrip flights departing from U.S. airports beginning Saturday, December 16 and returning by Friday, December 29, the travel insurance and assistance company found that 79% of the itineraries reviewed are for domestic travel and 21% are for international trips.   


Top Domestic Destinations - Allianz Survey


New York City headlines for the third year in a row as the number one domestic destination on American travelers’ wish lists this holiday season, followed by sunny Orlando (#2), dazzling Las Vegas (#3), Los Angeles (#4) and Atlanta (#5). This year, Las Vegas notably jumps four spots compared to 2022, making an appearance in the domestic top three for the first time since the survey’s inception in 2016.  


Travelers planning an overseas holiday should be prepared for busier airport gates at warm-weather destinations. For the sixth time in a row, Cancun stays on top with travelers opting to escape the cold to relax on Mexico’s sunny beaches. Not far behind, London, England (#2), continues to be a top contender while sunnier destinations like San Jose Del Cabo, Mexico (#3), Montego Bay, Jamaica (#4) and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic (#5) continue to attract U.S. travelers.  


If you have a frequent traveler in the family, a great gift this holiday season is an annual travel insurance policy,” says Daniel Durazo, director of external communications at Allianz Partners USA. “Whether they are traveling stateside shouting ‘Viva Las Vegas,’ or hitting the beach internationally, a travel insurance policy can offer peace of mind in case of an unexpected covered travel delay, trip cancellation or trip interruption, and an annual policy can provide protection all year ‘round for those covered pre-paid, non-refundable expenses.”  


Allianz Partners offers travel insurance through most major U.S. airlines, leading travel agents, online travel agencies, hotel companies, cruise lines and directly to consumers. For more information on Allianz Partners and available travel policies, please visit
