Are You A Seek­ender?

Business Traveler (USA) - - LIFESTYLE NEWS -

Some re­cent re­search has un­cov­ered a new group of trav­eler, dubbed the ‘Seek­ender. ’These are trav­el­ers who regularly takes ad­van­tage of week­ends to spon­ta­neously en­joy new ex­pe­ri­ences, with travel be­ing at the top of the list. The study, con­ducted by Wake­field Re­search for Hamp­ton by Hil­ton ho­tels, also re­vealed that this group bases travel around four main types of ac­tiv­i­ties: food, sports, mu­sic or the great out­doors.

The online sur­vey of 1,504 adults found that nearly half (49 per­cent) of Amer­i­cans would rank travel to other coun­tries above buy­ing their dream car, and over half (51 per­cent) would pre­fer to take a trip that pushes them out of their com­fort zone. And if money were no ob­ject, 82 per­cent of work­ing Amer­i­cans would travel for a year with­out pay.

Re­spon­dents across dif­fer­ent gen­er­a­tions also agreed that hit­ting the road for ad­ven­ture and hav­ing ex­pe­ri­ences in life ranks higher than money.
