Domestic U.S. leisure travel volume is still growing, but the pace of growth has slowed. The U.S. Travel Association’s current travel index dropped from 52.2 in Aug. to 51.9 in Sept. and, according to an announcement made on Dec. 6, to 51.6 in Oct.

Oct. marks the 82nd consecutive month travel has expanded, based on the association’s current travel index. An index score above 50 indicates expansion, and the six-month moving average index score is 51.8.

Domestic travel slipped to an index score of 51.6. International travel improved slightly over its six-month average to 51.7. The business travel index score declined by 2.5 points month over month from 52.0 in Sept. to 49.5, and the leisure travel index rose by a point to 52.7.
