By 2018 Baby Boomers, well over 60 years old, are selecting tourism destinations at reasonably priced but with enough amenities and away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and adventures.
The booking data of the also known as Boomers, born from the late 1940s through the 1950s final years shows their top domestic and international destinations are jet-setting to, along with unique trends for this age group, and the average cost of plane tickets this spring.
OneTravel, a leading online travel agency, has released the top destinations for Baby Boomers that are traveling this spring.
Boomers are associated with a rejection or redefinition of traditional values but many experts, however, have disputed the extent of that rejection, noting the widespread continuity of values with older and younger generations.
In Europe and North America, boomers are widely associated with privilege, as many grew up in a time of widespread government subsidies in post-war housing and education.
This age group is considered at least in the field of holidays, as conservatives. According to OneTravel in 2018 Boomers continue to travel to more traditional vacation spots for retirees like Orlando, Florida and Cancun, Mexico.
As an exception some of them seem to be more daring in 2018 booking to up-and-coming destinations such as Thailand, Vietnam, Costa Rica, and Peru
The same review explained that European cities appear to be the most appealing international choice for Boomers with several cities making it into the top 20 this year.
