2024's Most Popular Travel Destinations, According to American Express

From luxurious Italian beach towns to vibrant Mexican destinations, the list has it all.

It's finally here—one of your vacation planning must-reads is finally live, and we can't wait to tell you more about it. 

American Express Travel recently published its list of what it predicts will be the 10 most popular destinations for travel next year, and it includes something for every type of traveler. To come up with its latest annual ranking, the team analyzed travel reservation data from American Express members and, as a bonus, American Express Travel consultants created curated highlights for each destination with tips on where to stay, eat, and shop.

Whether you want to hop on a flight to go hug koalas in the wilderness or if you'd rather spend your vacation days on a glorious, secluded beach, the list has what you need. This year's choices go "beyond the typical vacation hotspots," and focus instead on more secluded locations that are better described as "off the beaten path."
