Today more than ever, despite financial uncertainty,
young people are saving up to travel around the world.
With modern technology evolving everyday, we take a lot of things for
granted. We often forget how convenient travel is today. Aviation plays
a bigger role in our lives than one might imagine. Think about this: nearly 63
million jobs are provided by air travel, making aviation a key component in
global business. Aside from the economy factor, today more than ever people
are willing to invest their savings into traveling as opposed to spend money
shopping or going out locally. Young people in their 20”s and 30”s see travel
as the best investment of their money, in exchange for cultural experiences.
According to the United Nations, young people generate $180 billion annually
in tourism revenue. What’s surprising is that today more than ever people are
willing to travel despite any economic uncertainty. Reason being, tourists
want to see and explore as many different cultures as they can, something
they can’t do from the comfort of their own home.
