AARP just released its annual study on 2017 Travel Trends. We love to dig into this research each year. It gives us insight about one of our core group of travelers: Baby Boomers.
As we well know, single travel has been a huge trend for Baby Boomers, and the outlook for 2017 is no different. Both domestically and internationally, solo travel is among the top reasons why Baby Boomers will travel in 2017. Here’s what else we found out:
Almost Everyone Travels
According to the study, a massive 95% of Baby Boomers will plan at least one leisure vacation in 2017. What’s more, many plan an average of five or more trips each year. Why? Baby Boomers are more likely to be retired or have an empty nest. So this group of travelers tends to have more time and resources for vacation.
