Over 30% increase in self-drive travellers to US & Canada

July 10, 2017 Motoring No Comments Email Email

Data just released by DriveAway has revealed extremely strong growth in self-drive tourism to North America. They report an increase of over 30% in pick ups from the US and Canada over the last 12 months, with the main cities driving this growth being Detroit (53%), Houston (40%) and Nashville (27%). James Dowe, Head of Marketing at DriveAway said ‘It’s really exciting to see the interest growing in these more ‘real America’ hoods of Houston and Orlando.’ The biggest growth for self-drive in Canada was Calgary, which had the highest volume in Canada and also grew 28% year on year.

The classic American road trip is increasingly done in the classic American cars, with Mustangs and American SUVs growing strongly over the last 12 months. It’s no surprise that Mustangs are most popular in Las Vegas, LA and Honolulu – where they account for almost 20% of all of DriveAway’s bookings in those locations.
