Poll reveals the four categories of flight passengers

Those booking flights abroad fall into four categories corresponding to their different personalities

Those booking flights abroad fall into four categories corresponding to their different personalities, a new survey has suggested.

According to Travelex Outsourcing, holidaymakers are either ‘party animals’, ‘lovers of luxury’, ‘young at heart’ or ‘city slickers’.

Travelex outsourcing Europe and North American managing director Steve O’Donovan said that it was "important" that a person’s break reflects their passions and interests.

"This list of personality traits is by no means exhaustive – everyone is different – but having worked in the travel industry for over 100 years, we have certainly witnessed the growth of various characteristics," he commented.

While ‘city slickers’ enjoy the buzz of big cities, individuals looking for luxury are more likely to opt for the finer things in life.

‘Party animals’ are more likely to frequent bars and clubs than lounge by the pool, with those ‘young at heart’ tend to plan the minor details of their trip abroad more meticulously.

Ibiza, Rhodes and Palma in Majorca are popular destinations among groups looking for a party, while Barbados and Seychelles are among the top luxury destinations.

Whistler in Canada and Florida were popular among the ‘young at hearts’, while those looking for city breaks were most likely to opt for Paris or New York.

A separate Travelex poll recently revealed that Scottish holidaymakers have the largest budgets of anyone in the UK, while those in London and the south-east carry the least amount of cash abroad.
