Over 60s refusing to let recession change holiday plans
November 12th, 2009 by elisa

The over-60s are saying “to hell with it” and refusing to let the recession kill their holidays claims a recent poll of 1,030 people by World Travel Market.

The  so-called “grey” market makes up nearly two thirds of the 54% of people who have declared their holidays sacrosanct and decided to completely ignore the economic downturn.

“Eighty percent of the public sampled admit issues such as poor currency exchange rates and flight taxes won’t deter them. And of those people, the over-60s is the biggest grouping (84%). They are fitter and more adventurous and are not prepared to let a recession spoil their fun.” said WTM chairman Fiona Jeffery

This attitude is in stark contrast to the cash-strapped younger 16-24 age bracket. The forecast for them is overcast with gloomy stay-at-home prospects.  Meanwhile, the 25-40 category of travellers are having to scale down their holiday habits. If this year’s experience is anything to go by, there will be far less of them adding short breaks or second overseas trips to their coveted main summer time off.
