OneTravel Data Shows Baby Boomers Are Embracing Adventure Travel


NEW YORK, March 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- OneTravel, a leading online travel agency, has released the top destinations Baby Boomers over the age of 60 are traveling to this spring. The booking data shows the top domestic and international destinations Boomers are jet-setting to, along with unique trends for this age group, and the average cost of plane tickets this spring.

While Boomers continue to travel to more traditional vacation spots for retirees like Orlando, Florida and Cancun, Mexico, booking data shows they are getting more adventurous this year, by heading to up-and-coming destinations such as Thailand, Vietnam, Costa Rica, and Peru.

European cities appear to be the most appealing international choice for Boomers with seven cities making it into the top 20 this year. Select European gateways have seen significant price decreases year over year which may be contributing to their increase in popularity. According to OneTravel's data, flights to Paris are 19% cheaper, flights to Dublin are 14% cheaper, and flights to Rome are 12% cheaper than in 2017.1

Domestically, Boomers continue to frequent warm weather destinations such as Florida, Arizona, Nevada, and California.
