STUDY: Where do millennials want to go?

Topdeck’s annual Youth Travel Survey has revealed millennials top desired travel locations globally!

The survey was open to 18-35-year-olds globally but was weighted more heavily in the UK, United States, Canada, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. Respondents were sourced from 101 countries in total.

Unsurprisingly, number one was the old fave for globe-trotting youngsters, Greece. But what stands out about these findings is the next two rankings, which are the US and Canada respectively.

The study also found that 94 per cent of Australians have travelled overseas on average, 49 per cent would go away for 2-4 weeks, more than Kiwis at 39 per cent and globally at 37 per cent.

Plus, Aussies scored the highest when asked if they intended to travel this year, at 93 per cent, beating the global average of 91 per cent.
