Millennials prefer to travel to European destinations

Millennials prefer to travel to European destinations.

A study has found that those in the 18 to 36 age bracket enjoy heading to European countries such as the Netherlands, Spain and France the most.

And 80 percent of travellers prefer to head somewhere international rather than travel around their own country whilst 50 percent of millennials also like to be able to see different cities in one trip. United States and New Zealand are also popular places to go to.

The study carried out by Skyscanner India also found that 62 percent of people in the millennial age bracket travel two to five times a year, whilst 10 percent of people say they go on holiday between six and 10 times a year.

They shared in their report: "While they seem spontaneous, Millennials are much more organised than they let on. Contrary to the common perception that Millennials are laidback, it turns out the younger generation are in fact methodical organizers who prefer time in hand to plan an efficient holiday - nearly half of the respondents (45 percent) book their tickets three months prior to their journey date.

"The Millennial Travel Survey also observed that 86 percent of Millennial travelers prefer to pay more for convenience of flight schedule, irrespective of cost. This is in stark contrast to non-millennial travellers, 75 percent of whom choose to book a cheaper flight even if is at an anti-social hour or involves a layover. This is an interesting revelation especially in the light of Indians being such known fans of VFM - Value for Money. Millennials are bucking the age-old trend and choosing convenience over cost. However, 88 percent of all travellers are still in search of a 'good' deal and are willing to shift the date of their travel plans for a better price."
