TRAVEL BY GENERATION [INFOGRAPHIC]

A Marketer’s Guide to Engaging Travelers of all Ages

Everyone loves to travel. People of all generations constantly discuss, research and fantasize about it. As a result, there’s a vast audience of trip planners who need travel information. Although marketing to travelers may seem like an easy task when people are taking three to four trips per year, not all travelers are looking for the same information in the same places. In fact, Millennials, Gen Xers and Boomers have different habits and motivations.

Millennial travelers are taking more trips than their older counterparts. They are most interested in cultural travel experiences and are more likely to book travel online. Gen Xers spend six or more months planning a trip and are more likely to work while on vacation. And unlike younger generations, Boomers tune out social media while on vacation and are the least likely to use online planning tools to book a trip.

It’s important to recognize generational trends when you’re marketing to travelers. Knowing what your audiences appreciates in a trip and how they’ll absorb the information you provide to them is key.
