In a recent report, Future Traveller Tribes 2030, by the Future Foundation agency and commissioned by Amadeus, a lot was unveiled about tomorrow’s traveler, specifically the six traveler tribes of the future. Which of the six categories do you fit in?
These travelers revel in ease and will often look to knowledgeable outside sources like travel agents to make the process of planning their travel a breeze.
In love with local flair and customs that take them far away from home, these travelers are comfortable when they are out of their comfort zones and seek authentic, destination-specific experiences.
Social Capital Seekers
Instagram is the name of the game for these travelers who seek destinations based on the amount of “likes” their photos will garner. They know that someone is always watching and making those watching envious of their well-traveled social persona is the goal.
ROI is what a Reward Hunter is looking for. They are busy power-players by day and self-improvement seekers by holiday. Willing to splurge, these travelers want the best-of-the-best.
Destinations for these travelers are chosen for them. Be it business or family, this tribe has a purpose for their packing.
Paying it forward helps to guide this tribe on its travels. From environmental clean up, communities in need, politics, or just contributing to downtrodden economies, Ethical Travelers are looking to make a difference when they make their travel plans.
