2016 travel trends for baby boomers

2016 travel trends for baby boomers | Baby Boomer Guide | Scoop.it

A new survey provides great insight into how American baby boomers want to get away in 2016, from desired destinations to lodging options and favourite trip planning tools. The vast majority of baby boomers are planning to drive, fly or set sail on leisure trips in 2016, with an average of 4 or 5 trips already in the works. Boomers make up a large segment of the travelling public, and so it's particularly important for the travel industry to be aware of what boomers are looking for in their holidays going into 2016.
