TRAVEL BUGS: MEET THE SIX KEY TYPES OF AUSSIE TRAVELLERS

Nine million Australians say they have travelled domestically in the past six months or internationally in the past 12 months. But are all travellers the same? Using data from Nielsen’s Consumer & Media View (CMV) and the 2017 Australian Connected Consumers Report, we identified six distinct types of Australian travellers and looked at how best to reach and engage each group.

The unique differences between the six groups highlight the importance of ensuring marketing strategies are adjusted to better connect with travelling Australians. With each segment being similar in size, it’s clear there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach when it comes to effective travel marketing.

While one-in-five travellers simply seek an ‘escape from reality’ by taking a domestic weekend away; at the other end of the scale, another one-in-five like to ‘travel in style’ – they pay special attention to their appearance, enjoy the finer things in life and typically love sharing their experiences on social media.

The data also shows clear preferences among older travellers; as well as those looking for cultural experiences; and even the typical everyday traveller who is just looking for the best price deals online.
