Study reveals who’s most likely to inspire your travel dreams

Study reveals who’s most likely to inspire your travel dreams | Tourism Social Media | Scoop.it

A recent study led by Hotels.com has revealed an unlikely demographic is influencing younger generations' travel. The study, which surveyed 5,200 people across 28 countries has shown that it is in fact the oldies who are inspiring wanderlust. The results showed a trend in grandparents teaching young travellers a thing or two about making the most of life, with a fifth of those surveyed under 30 saying they are inspired to travel, based on the adventures of their grandparents and parents. As well as this, almost a fifth of millennials admit to having a glamourous gran and one in eight confessed that their gran (or nana) was cooler and travelled more than them. Find out more.

American millennial travellers are relaxed, romantic and embrace #YOLO

American millennial travellers are relaxed, romantic and embrace #YOLO | Tourism Social Media | Scoop.it

Millennial travellers in the U.S. embrace the ‘you only live once’ (#YOLO) mentality, take risks, and focus on crossing things off their bucket list, while Gen X prefer relaxing trips and visiting family. The findings, from a survey we conducted with Northstar Research Partners, illustrate the distinct shopping habits, influences and motivations of travellers across four generations, including Generation Z, Millennials, Generation X and Baby Boomers. Across all generations, Americans are open-minded travellers who are deciding between two or more destinations and seeking help and inspiration during the travel planning process.
