Santa Barbara, California – With summer now coming to an end, the leaves will turn from tranquil green to vivacious yellow, orange and red. But the turning of leaf colors isn’t the only thing that’s trending this fall. These six autumn travel trends are as fresh as fall itself.

Solo travel has been gaining more and more traction. It allows travelers to explore at their own pace. Many people are opting for solo trips as a way to become more self-confident and self-reliant.

Travelers can pair their rise in vacation activity with 24 hours a day, 365 days a year travel protection such as Emergency Assistance Plus (EA+). This annual membership protects travelers on domestic and international travels.
