Mar 22 2022

Wanderlust Millennials see 2022 as their year to get back to travel. The American Express travel trends report for 2022 surveyed 3,000 regular travelers earning at least $70,000 across seven countries and found 62% of respondents say they want to take around two to four trips this year, with Millennials ages 26-41-years-old leading the wave. Eighty-four percent of Millennials say they want to go where they can immerse themselves in the local culture, and 83% say they’re trying to be more purposeful in how they plan their trips and which companies they book with. Additionally, Millennials want to take international trips (Europe, Africa, the Galapagos Islands, and Antarctica are popular destinations they have in mind), and 49% are willing to travel solo. Meanwhile, 65% of all respondents say they would rather take their dream vacation than purchase a new car. YPulse’s The In-Between trend research shows one-fourth of Millennials say they’ll return to traveling by plane internationally within the next year. (Forbes)
