A generation gap among U.S. business travelers might define the travel landscape in 2012, according to Deloitte’s annual business travel survey.
Eighty-five percent of the business travelers surveyed said they expected to take the same amount of business trips or more in 2012 when compared to 2011. Younger respondents, aged 18-44, are expected to take more trips in the upcoming year, with 27.1% responding that they will travel more frequently in 2012 opposed to the 16.1% of business travelers in the 45+ age group that reported they will travel more frequently.
The survey also found travelers aged 18-29 tend to be more brand loyal and prefer automated check-in kiosks at lodging properties more often.
