How Frequently Do They Travel?

While there are some discrepancies in the results of various studies on the subject, most seem to have concluded that Millennials travel more often than members of older generations. This includes trips for both business and leisure.

It included approximately 8,500 employed Millennials from all over Asia Pacific, Europe, and North and South America.

According to its findings, people under 30 take 4.7 business and 4.2 leisure trips per year. People who most frequently find the time or means for leisurely travel seem to be American and Canadian Millennials, with 7.8 trips per year.

Members of Generation X have been found to take 3.6 business and 2.9 leisure trips a year.
