Are you a baby boomer planning on traveling this year?

Do you fit the definition of a baby boomer?   Were you born between 1946-1964?  If you were, then you are a baby boomer.  Many boomers are getting close to, if not already reached, retirement age so more they’ll have more free time.

AARP asked a poll of why boomers who plan on traveling in 2015 about their travel plans and the results were pretty interesting.

  • For those baby boomers still working, just over 1/2 will take all or most of their vacation time.
  • A third will take work with them on vacation
  • Over 1/4 say that they need to stay connected to work while on vacation.
  • About 2/3 of the boomers surveyed are looking for a relaxing and laid back vacation.
  • Almost a third of those surveyed said they were taking international bucket list trips
  • Almost 1/4 were going to travel internationally for a summer vacation compared to 30% who will be traveling domestically
  • Over 50% were going to be taking a multi-generational vacation (parents, grandparents and grandchildren all traveling together)
  • A bit of 25% were looking forward to some domestic weekend getaways.
