The Millennial generation seems to be changing the game in every single field of life, and vacations are no different. Though this is a generation that loves to travel, they are often unable to take vacations due to work, finances, or not being able to plan them. This has created a new trend among millennials and it’s called a micro-cation.
The trend has been noticed by the Allianz Global Assistance, the financial service company that published the 2019 Vacation Confidence Index. In the document, it was noted that 57% of Americans didn’t take a vacation longer than four nights last year. It’s particularly prominent in the Millennial generation – these young people are more likely to go on 3-4 short vacations instead of one long one in a year.
The biggest reason why this generation takes shorter vacations is money – both money not spent on a longer stay and money they don’t lose by taking days off work.
