According to MMGY Global’s 2014 Portrait of American Travelers, when it comes to “Types of Special Occasion Vacations Taken,” Millennials are just as likely as Xers and Boomers to travel to celebrate an anniversary and the most likely demographic to do so for a birthday. Here's a look at the top occasions Millennials are looking to celebrate.
Millennials are also second only to Matures regarding trips taken to attend a family reunion. Not surprisingly, given their age range of about 25 to 35, Millennials are far and away the leading travelers for engagements, bachelor/bachelorette parties, weddings and honeymoons. They also lead the pack in using travel to celebrate getting a new job or a bonus or raise at work.
