The COVID-19 pandemic has canceled many vacations and weekend getaways for people all across the world. If you're trip was canceled, you’re not alone.

DoorDash’s Deep dish survey found that 63% of Americans have canceled a vacation due to COVID-19.

When it comes to planning a vacation, 75% said food is important in determining summer travel plans and over 55% prefer to order takeout while on a summer vacation.

DoorDash will be sending free $20 gift cards for the meals you were most looking forward to during your vacation by recreating that experience at home.

To receive a free gift card, simply share your story of your canceled trip with DoorDash on Twitter, tagging @DoorDash and using hashtag #LastDashOfSummer.

DoorDash will then DM you a $20 gift card, one per person while supplies last.
