U.S. Baby Boomer 2019 travel trends – AARP

Published on : Thursday, January 10, 2019

AARP recently released a report summarising 2019 Boomer travel trends. As per the report, the seniors are expected to take 4-5 leisure trips this year, spending over U.S. dollars 6,600. This investment is mostly going to be in cruises. The majority are travelling with a smartphone, seeking out authentic experiences. They are more interested in AirBnB than hotels.

 

 

 

AARP is a United States-based interest group whose stated mission is ‘to empower people to choose how they live as they age.’

 

 

 

According to the online survey, 31 per cent of those who are going abroad, have booked their 2019 trips by Sept. 2018. This is up from 23 per cent by September of the previous year in 2018 and 17 per cent in 2017.

 

 

 

The top international destinations include Europe (41 per cent), the Caribbean (20 per cent), and Asia and the Middle East (11 per cent).

 

 

 

Among the domestic trips, most common expected are summer vacations, weekend getaways, and multi-generational trips. The most population destinations for Americans are same as 2018; with the top-mentioned locations once again being Florida (17 per cent), California (11 per cent), New York (5 per cent), Texas (5 per cent), and Las Vegas (5 per cent).

 

 

 

Jonathan Breeze, CEO of AardvarkCompare.com, a travel insurance comparison site for seniors and an expert on all things senior travel says that for the Baby Boomer generation, it is time to spend. Saving money is not their concern as they do not have to pay student debt or mortgages.

 

 

Boomers want to make the most of their golden years and travel the world.
