Than Other Generations, Marriott Rewards Credit Card from Chase Survey Reveals Millennial Travelers Seek Thrilling Trips and View International Vacation Hot Spots through a Pop Culture Lens
WILMINGTON, Del.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Millennials are more likely than their older counterparts to travel with a purpose as 84 percent of millennials say they would travel abroad to participate in volunteer activities, according to a new survey released today by Marriott Rewards Credit Card. Furthermore, 32 percent of millennials are interested in taking a charitable trip, while only two in ten Generation X travelers (18 percent) and baby boomers (17 percent) are interested in doing the same. Conversely, female travelers (28 percent), regardless of age, tend be more interested in taking a charitable vacation compared to their male counterparts (17 percent).
“Other generations may not assume Millennials would use their most precious assets, their time and money, to give back to international communities they visit, but today’s young travelers are reframing that mindset,” said Vibhat Nair, general manager, Chase Card Services. “We’ve seen in the past that this generation of travelers value rewards and perks from travel services, and now we’re seeing how they could be using those rewards for a larger purpose.”
