Traveling with Millennials generation: its approach to business and leisure travel

Traveling with Millennials generation: its approach to business and leisure travel | TalentCircles | Scoop.it

Millennials in the U.S. value diversity, embrace a global perspective, and are open to new experiences. These characteristics—which suggest a generation of natural travelers—are good news for the travel industry. At this stage in their lives, however, many of today’s 16- to 34-year-olds have limited discretionary income and choose to dine out, shop for apparel, or save for big-ticket items such as education, a home, or a car instead of spending their money on travel. Millennials also seem to be more affected by adverse economic conditions than non-Millennials. As a result, most Millennials can’t afford extensive leisure travel, and few are fully active business travelers—yet. We estimate that they currently account for about one-third of total U.S. spending on business flights.

Yet since the Great Recession of 2008, they have been having a hard time. They are facing one of the worst job markets in decades. They are in debt. Many of them are unemployed. The income gap between old and young Americans is widening. To give you a sense of their lot, when you search 'are millennials' in Google, the search options that come up include: 'are millennials selfish,' 'are millennials lazy,' and 'are millennials narcissistic.'"

Alex Cowans's curator insight, February 13, 3:55 PM

I found this article very interesting because it rang true to what us as Millennials believe. I have many friends and acquaintances who are following a career path not for the money but rather for the meaning behind it. I have friends who are nursing majors because they like helping people. As a performing arts major, I along with my peers, strive to be successful not for money or fame, but because we as performers have the ability to touch and inspire people with our work. Millennials commonly find meaning by interacting with and benefiting others rather than how much money we've made or who we've beaten out to get to where we are today.
