There are plenty of things that influence where and how you travel: money, bucket list, flights times, travel restrictions… and your birthday? Yep, according to the Shullman Research Center, your birth generation affects how you travel, where you travel and how much you spend on travel.
According to the researchers, Baby Boomers are more likely to travel for pleasure than Generation X and Millennials. Research also showed Millennials prefer to travel outside of the United States, followed by Baby Boomers and then Generation X. However, Hawaii is the number one destination spot for those born in or around the year 2000, while those born anywhere in the 1960s – the 1980s prefer Florida or California. Not surprisingly, Baby Boomers prefer traveling somewhere warm.
We are all pretty much traveling by plane both nationally and internationally, although those in Generation X sometimes prefer to drive while traveling in America.
It’s important to note that Shullman Research Center surveyed consumers with a household income greater than $75,000.
