Millennials are one of the most travel-savvy demographics, traveling roughly 35 days each year—more than any other generation. This desire for travel often stems from this generation’s exposure to adventure at a young age. According to research from airport lounge provider Club Aspire, 61 percent of 25- to 34-year-olds first flew before the age of 10.With this sense of wanderlust coupled with increasingly affordable international flights, it’s become more common for younger adults to take to the skies several times throughout the year.

Why do we travel? For seeking thrill, joy, tranquillity, knowledge, satisfaction, company, solitude, pleasant or off-beat experiences – there are many answers to this question. None of these might be your reason to set off on a trip, while for some it may be all of these and more. While we can always agree to disagree, there is one thing that can be said with utmost certainty: nobody – without exception – hopes for a vacation punctuated with worries, problems, and unpleasant experiences.
