Travel to and within the U.S. grew 3.2 percent year-over-year in January, according to the U.S. Travel Association's latest Travel Trends Index (TTI)-marking the industry's 109th straight month of overall expansion.

That could be problematic as the U.S. works to halt erosion in its share of the competitive international travel market.
