Those crazy kids sure know how to travel.
Website Internet Marketing unveiled the fruit of its Internet labor, an infographic that takes into account various Internet reports on millennial travel habits.
What we get is a brief snapshot of how this younger generation chooses to travel the world, which obviously means a close dedication to technology and innovations that make the endeavor all the easier.
Some of which echoes a report from TravelPulse’s Patrick Clarke who reports on generational discrepancies across millennial, generation X and baby boom habits.
In the following graphic, we get a resplendent display of data to consider.
For example, social media plays a crucial part in a millennial’s consideration for future travel. 87 percent, for example, use Facebook when they are deciding where to go, giving at least a little heft to your onslaught of holiday photos.
The technology trends don’t stop there, because about half use smartphones or tablets to book a trip and 85 percent do their due diligence across Internet websites -- this generation’s version of window shopping.
As for who is doing that in-flight tweeting, the study found that a whopping 60 percent of millennials pony up for some form of in-flight service, including Wi-Fi.
It’s a bold generation that expects technology at every turn of its travel itinerary, from inception until the moment each returns home satisfied.
Here is who they are.
