With spring just around the corner, college kids and working millennials alike are planning their end of winter getaways. Leading online travel agency CheapOair has compared data and analyzed trends on where millennials are heading this year, how much they are spending, and how these destinations have changed year over year.
While millennials are still traveling to popular spring break destinations such as Mexico and Jamaica, booking data shows that travelers ages 21-30 are also getting more adventurous this year and heading to overseas destinations like Thailand, Vietnam, New Zealand, and Bali.
Though most European destinations have been outside of the top destinations for spring travel in past years, London, Dublin, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Paris, and Madrid are all near the top of this year’s list. Additionally, the percentage of international travel for millennials during the months of March and April is trending upwards with a 12% increase in international bookings since 20163.
Domestic travel is very affordable for spring travel this year. Average roundtrip airfare to all of the top domestic destinations, with the exception of Hawaii, are all under $3402 and more than half of the destinations have an average airfare under $3002.
