Millennial Tourists are seeking urban experiences more now than ever, according to a recent study. While on vacation, according to a new review of millennial travel habits, by research firm Resonance, the overall number of city trips increased by 82 percent between 2007 and 2014. This means that young travelers will be coming to a city near you more than ever. So, hostels and other accommodations catering to youth travel should be getting ready for more traffic in urban areas.
The analysis reported that millennial travelers today are “almost as likely to visit a major metropolitan city (38 percent) as they are to visit a beach resort (40 percent) in the next 24 months.” And guess what hostel managers? People visiting urban areas are more likely to be higher wage earners. The appeal of city travel grows with affluence. So, these young travelers may be bringing more money to spend when they arrive.
