Give The Gift Of Travel With Contiki This Christmas

November 20, 2018 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

Forget about sex, carbs and coffee, park the Netflix and chill… millennials would much rather go on adventures and explore the world. And if given the opportunity to travel free for six months, according to a recent survey by Contiki, they would give up all-of-the-above just to jump on the next flight.

The youth travel experts have brought us some interesting findings – 83% are travelling one to five times a year, 48% travelling one to two times, 35% travelling three to five times per year. When it comes to what they’d be willing to abandon in the name of travel – 80% said Netflix, coffee (77%), alcohol (73%), carbs (60%), sex (57%); and 41% said their mobile phone – a huge call considering 49% admit to spending 8-10 hours per day on their device.

With a staggering 73% stating they look back at life and regret not taking an opportunity… Don’t let this be a recurring theme for your client’s loved one, with Christmas fast approaching –  suggest for them to give the gift of travel with a Contiki gift card and send them packing (with wanderlust!). The cards can also be redeemed on flights, pre/post accommodation and travel insurance. After all, the best gift in life are experiences #noregrets.
