overview
Did you get the latest memo? Gone are the days of choosing between collecting career kudos or tallying up travel tales – today’s young Aussies want (and are getting) it all, as they balance their passports with PDAs while flying up the corporate ladder. As the world’s leading travel company for 18 to 35s, Contiki is all about remaining plugged in and switched on to what young people want. In our first annual Contiki Travel Trends Research Report, the iTraveller Report, we exposed the rise of the intellectual traveller, focused on authentic cultural experiences. Last year we examined the relationship between young people’s travels and sustainable tourism in the Shades of Green Report. So, with career such an important focal point for most 18 to 35 year olds, this time around we got suited, booted and clocked on, commissioning in-depth research to see how globetrotting affects the work lives of young Aussies and vice versa. Fasten your seatbelts ladies and gentlemen; our young population sees many benefits from travelling. Our 2009 research report The Skilled Set reveals 97% of young Aussies believe travel gives people skills which can help with their career or life in general. They’re chucking out Chicken Soup for the Soul and checking into the world’s most fascinating places in the name of first-hand experience…and achieving personal and career growth at the same time. More than three quarters of young Australians agree travellers acquire skills they would never learn in the workplace. From budget and people management skills to a better understanding of world issues, and much more, they’re developing a vast portfolio of skills that is taking them straight from sightseeing to CV-ready. From the boarding gate to the boardroom, we’ve also tapped into what tips the scales to achieve the perfect work-life balance. The results have been weighed and one thing’s for sure - young Australians are taking advantage of their annual leave by swapping computer screens for exotic sights. The results are crystal clear; Australia’s 18 to 35s are jetsetting before job-hunting with travel coming out top dog of desires on their ‘to-dos’. And with the one-size fits all travel tenit of yesteryear firmly in the outbox, young travellers are favouring flexibility, freedom and the perfect fit for their holidays. With Contiki, 18 to 35s can tailor-make their holidays to achieve an ideal mix of fun, cultural insights and life-enriching experiences, meaning everyone, whether full-time, part-time or no-time worker, can dip into the bag of awesome adventures the world has to offer.
