(STUDY FINDS) -- NEW YORK — It’s hard to imagine in the context of 2019, but just a couple of decades ago people used to travel without the use of the internet. Nowadays the idea of traveling or going on vacation without the ability to jump online at any moment is enough to keep many Americans at home, according to a new survey of 2,000 U.S. adults.

Besides that, other vacation disasters included were food poisoning (49%), bad weather all trip long (47%), and a lost credit card (44%).
