Luxury traveller personalities revealed, Europe remains popular


  Paris, France topped the list for luxury romantic getaways and fine dining reservations.  

European destinations remain the most popular amongst affluent travellers, while cruise holidays continue to climb the ranks, according to network survey results.

International luxury travel agency network, Virtuoso, has revealed findings from its annual ‘Travel Dreams’ survey, identifying unique travel personalities through respondents selections.

There’s the classic traveller (26 percent of respondents) who re-visits destinations; the connoisseur (24 percent of respondents) who indulges in culture, arts and culinary delights; the trendsetter who’s all about what’s new and next; the go-getter who’s active and adventurous; and the relaxationist who prefers to rest, rejuvenate and restore while on vacation.

Italy topped the list of dream destinations, while Paris was number one for dining and romance.

Photographing the ‘big five’ while on safari in Africa ranks as the ‘trip of a lifetime.’

Although European river cruising and Mediterranean sailing trips were the most popular forms of cruising, expedition trips to Antarctic and Alaska made the top five for luxury travellers.
