A component of the U.S. Consumer Travel Report 2019 series, this Phocuswright travel research report, Travel Product Consumption, examines the popularity of major travel products, with a focus on air, car, hotel, private accommodation, and in-destination activities.

From 2016-2018, luxury hotels were big winners, as the overall usage incidence for luxury hotels nearly doubled, pushed by younger travelers (18-34 years old) who stayed in five-star hotels. Overall, hotel bookers spent more than they did the past two years. Younger travelers also embraced private accommodations, indicating that Gen Z may be looking to rentals more so than millennials did at the same age.
