The rise of revenge travel

Pent-up travel angst finding predictable outlets as travelers throw off the shackles

BANGALORE -- If the pandemic had not hit, Atlanta-based Sucheta Rawal would have reached her goal of traveling to 100 countries by this summer. Instead, she watched helplessly as countries began shuttering, and her March cruise to Vietnam and Cambodia fizzled out.

Three months of agony followed. But when restrictions began easing, she booked an overnight trip close to home. It opened the floodgates. Since then she has traveled every one to two weeks, almost with a vengeance. No surprise then that this trend has a name: revenge travel.
