In the lead up to Valentine’s day, Contiki, the youth travel leader has surveyed young Australians to find out more about their attitudes towards love and dating in 2019.

The survey revealed travelling with Contiki is a way to find long lasting love! 20% of travellers stated they found love while on Contiki. True romantics will be heartened to hear that 42% of those relationship are long lasting with many pairings resulting in marriages and children! If love is a numbers game, then these odds are tipped pretty favourably with 8% of all Contiki travellers finding lasting love on Contiki.

The survey also revealed that despite millennials getting a bad rap for changing the face of traditional relationships (and despite 55% being single), romance isn’t dead – 90% still believe in it! Even though only 39% identified as in a committed relationship, 56% said they planned to celebrate Valentine’s day this year. Romantics at heart, 27% of young Aussie’s thought that the classic Dinner and a Movie was the best way to celebrate Valentine’s Day, while 22% of respondents dreamed bigger – stating the ideal romantic gesture would be getting on a plane and travelling somewhere new.

The romance game has changed for the younger generation though – with a whopping 24% meeting through online dating apps. A further 17% met through school or uni and 11% meet through travel generally or through a friend. However, not everyone was in a rush to be coupled up with 22% of respondents proclaiming themselves happily single.

One thing has stayed the same – Paris is still considered the city of love – 26% stated it as the most romantic destination. The next romantic destination to watch? Italy! From Venice to Florence, Verona, Positano, Amalfi & Rome, 14% of young Aussie’s tipped it for an in-depth romantic getaway.

They say travel can make or break a couple, but 43% were willing to put that to the test picking their partner as their ideal travel companion. A further 28% would pick their best friend and a smaller 19% would rather travel solo.
