International Travel to the U.S. Contracts for the Fifth Month of 2019

Travel to and within the United States grew 2.2 percent year-over-year in September, according to the U.S. Travel Association’s latest Travel Trends Index (TTI), marking the industry’s 117th straight month of growth. However, international travel to the United States contracted 0.4 percent in September, marking the fifth month in negative territory in 2019. The Leading Travel Index (LTI), the predictive element of the TTI, projects inbound international travel volume will decline 0.6 percent over the next six months as prolonged trade tensions and the high value of the dollar continue to weigh on demand for travel to the United States.
