We know Millennials love to travel. They love it as much as making up acronyms for sitting around and not going to the pop up that all their friends are going to – FOMOOPO? But exactly how much do they love it or rather what would they be willing to sacrifice in order to travel for free?
Contiki asked 1,500 Millennials what they would give up for travel and these were the results
Cell phone (41%)
Now giving up access to Netflix for a great trip seems pretty reasonable but coffee, alcohol, and sex? Those kids really want to see the world! The cell phone statistic is also pretty impressive considering that 49% admitted to using their phone 8 to 10 hours per day.
But the deep love of travel is very clear as the survey found that 83% of Millennials travel one to three times per year. Another recent survey commissioned by Hilton Hotels & Resorts found that travel and discovering new things is many Millennials favorite past time.
In fact, 75% of young professionals in the U.S. see business travel as a major work perk and 65% consider it to be a status symbol. Nearly 40% of Millennials go so far as to say they wouldn’t take a job that didn’t allow them to travel for business and 56% create reasons to travel for business. So clearly sacrificing watching Stranger Things is not a big deal for this group.
