Contiki, international coach tour company, has released its global travel survey that showed travellers are 14% more likely to look for new opportunities to develop their skills and knowledge. On that note, it said: “Travel creates a sense of belief in yourself and what you can achieve.”
The survey also revealed that travellers are 25% more likely to set goals for themselves – and regularly achieve them. In fact, three-quarters (75%) of travellers indicated that they are more confident because of travel and perform well on different types of tasks. More importantly, travellers are also 43% more likely to be satisfied with their employment opportunities.
Meanwhile, the survey also revealed that travellers are 9% more likely to highly value original thinking. Not only that, they are 7% more likely to think outside the box – allowing for original ideas and innovative solutions. And when it comes to working with others, travellers have been cited to be 7% more likely to accept that some people have different beliefs than their own.
The survey was done in partnership with Fan Data Analytics to survey 3,000 18-35 year olds, breaking the pool into two groups of travellers and non-travellers.
