The cliches of what older luxury travelers want from a vacation are changing. Instead of lounging by the pool with a cocktail in hand, older generations increasingly seek out far-flung destinations looking for adventure and one-of-a-kind experiences. When it comes to international trips, a recent AARP Travel survey found that the majority of Boomers travel overseas on a bucket list trip (22%), compared with 13% of Gen Xs, and just 6% of Millennials.

Baby boomers take fewer trips than other demographics, but when they do travel, they spend a lot more. According to research by Phocuswright, travelers aged 55 and above are more likely to spend over $1,000 per trip. And nearly half of Boomer travelers spend approximately $3,000 per year on travel, which makes them the highest spending of all age groups.
