Exploration holidays are the priority for the over 55s, while 64 percent of 25 to 34 year olds are only interested in the beach.

A London Luton Airport spokesman, who commissioned the survey to identify travel trends for 2023, said: “Over the past year, demand for air travel has steadily increased, with over 13 million leisure and business travelers passing through London Luton Airport travelled.

More than half (51 percent) of those aged 55 and over want to visit places off the beaten path once they are fully able to travel again.

Nearly two-thirds of this generation find multi-destination holidays most appealing, but 18-24 year olds prefer something with a little more adventure.

A journey of self-discovery is the focus for 14 percent, while the younger generation – those aged 18 to 24 – admit they will be looking for love (15 percent).

With the cost of living crisis looming on us all, 49 percent of all respondents have reconsidered their vacation plans for the coming year, with 23 percent choosing cheaper travel destinations.

More than four in 10 people surveyed via OnePoll only look at deals and deals to manage costs, while 28 percent plan to book each vacation component separately to get the best price.

It also found that nearly a fifth (19 percent) are considering going out with family members to keep costs down.

Looking ahead, 27 percent already have their own savings pot for next year’s vacation, while 22 percent typically do so more than a year in advance.
