Gen Z, the generation that makes the most out of travel

Travelers in this generation are more comfortable spreading their wings and seeing the world than previous generations

Aug 16, 2023

Recent data underscores the fact that Gen Z travelers want to get out and explore, and that they’re willing to do so even if their finances aren’t exactly squared away.

Key takeaways

  • Surveys show that, even though Generation Z adults may not have reached their peak earning years, they may be more willing to spend money on leisure travel than their Gen X and Baby boomer peers.
  • Pent-up demand for travel caused by COVID-19 means that many Gen Zers are ponying up more cash than normal for their travel plans this year.
  • Gen Z individuals still tend to be savvy when it comes to shopping for the best deal and using credit card rewards to pay for airfare and hotels (which may be why Gen Z has the least amount of credit card debt when compared to older generations).
