A – ADVENTURE TRAVELLER
Do you feel home outdoors and most alive when you are surrounded by nature? You flourish on experiences and are not to fussed when it gets a bit rough and comfort needs to be put aside to get the most out of your day?
Fresh air, warm sun raise on your face and breathtaking views is what you are craving. You dislike crowds and the hustle and bustle of the city. When you are lost and wandering around, preferably off the beaten track, you enjoy expanding your horizon as well as seeing and experiencing new places and things.
The Adventure Traveller often follows the seasons. You go skiing or snowboarding in the winter. In spring and autumn, hiking, cycling and kayaking are on the top of your list. And in the summer, water based activities are what you are most looking forward to such as surfing, boogie boarding, waterskiing or scuba diving.
Best Vacations for Adventure Travellers:
- Mountain Vacations
- Scuba Vacations
- Water Sports Adventures
- Nude Beaches and Resorts
B – LUXURY TRAVELLER
You have high expectations and want the best of everything. Good value and unprecedented comfort with an exceptional service that is available whenever you want it is almost a must. You dine in high end restaurants and stay in top hotels.
Luxury Travellers prefer oceanfront rooms, suites and table service over garden view rooms, deluxe rooms and buffets. No matter where you are, a beautiful Caribbean island with endless white beaches or a glittering city, you always want to be where something is going on, you want to be where the action is.
Sometimes you organise trips on your own, but often you approach a top travel agent or tour operator to plan your luxury vacation for you. Especially when you are travelling to new and faraway places that you have not been to before.
Best Vacations for Luxury Travellers:
- World’s Sexiest Resorts
- Best of the Caribbean
- Relais & Chateaux Inns
C – ROMANTIC TRAVELLER
Just the two of us is your motto. You enjoy spending some good quality alone time with your partner. Rose petals on your bed and a big bathtub with enough space for two to soak in is what you like. A candlelight dinner followed by a walk along the beach or snuggling up by the fireplace sounds like the perfect end to your day.
Special occasions are important to you and need to be celebrated such as birthdays and anniversaries. And the best way to celebrate is to take a vacation together.
Best Vacations for Romantic Travellers:
- All-Inclusives for Adults
- Hotels with Big Bathtubs
- Train Travel
D – BUDGET TRAVELLER
You have lots of travel plans, you want to see the world, but you only have a bit of cash to spend. This is no problem for you though!
You are willing to compromise and sacrifice on luxury as long as you can travel. You opt for shared accommodation, choose to stay in AirBnBs instead of hotels and couch surfing does not bother you. You are not concerned sleeping in a hostel or even on a train, you see it as an adventure.
The Budget Traveller does lots of research before going away to look for the best deals, bargains and free things to do. You are smart about money and do not like wasting it. However, once in a while you splurge out on a few things that are really of value to you and worth spending a bit more on.
Best Vacations for Budget Travellers:
- Weekend Getaways
- Las Vegas
- State Fairs
