Solo travellers are not who you think

Solo travellers are not who you think | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it

Solo travellers don't go alone because they have to, they do it because they want to, a new QUT study has found. Solo travellers are choosing freedom, uncompromised fun and meeting new people over the desire to have a companion to share their experiences. In a study published in the International Journal of Tourism Research, Professor Bianchi looked at the drivers of satisfaction and dissatisfaction for solo travellers, given the growing numbers of holidaymakers travelling alone. "Research shows the fastest growing tourism segment and Australian figures support this with solo traveller numbers increasing by almost 20% between 2007 and 2011. Understanding tourist satisfaction and dissatisfaction will help tourism operators ensure solo travellers are not being ignored."

Millennials Want the Unique Instead of the Usual from Travel Brands

Millennials Want the Unique Instead of the Usual from Travel Brands | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it
Millennials are a departure from the traditional traveler. They desire the new and novel, and crave the unexpected.
They want meaningful travel experiences and demand the distinct and different. Research has shown that Millennials
travel often, taking an average of five business trips each year and extending them into leisure vacations. And this
audience is 23% more likely to travel abroad than their older counterparts. With Millennials in the U.S. on track to
spend $1.4 trillion each year by 2020, this travel-loving market is likely to put a portion of that on travel. That's
why travel brands can't afford to overlook this lucrative market. As a result, this is making many hotel brands
revisit their hospitality marketing strategies, which have been geared toward traditional travelers. But marketing to
Millennials demands a unique approach. Discover how to engage this market and get them to stay with a hotel
brand.
