The results also revealed 48 percent of millennials plan to travel during the holidays, the most of any age demographic. Fifty-four percent of people with children will hit the road, according to the consumer holiday travel survey from Generali Global Assistance’s Travel Insurance division. Survey breakdown The survey broke tourists into two categories; those traveling to see family and those taking a trip for vacation. The difference between the two subsections is huge, even fiscally, where 73 percent of those traveling to see family will spend less than $1,000. On the other hand, over half of the people hitting the road for vacation will spend more than $1,000 and 18 percent will spend between $2,500-$5,000.

For tourists heading outside the U.S., the Caribbean was the most popular choice. How will people travel? In terms of how people are traveling for the holidays, 68 percent of family-seeking travelers will drive and 29 percent will fly, as opposed to 43 percent of vacationers transporting by car and another 40 percent by plane.
