5 Types of Luxury Travelers

What Type of Luxury Traveler Are You?

Luxury travel is a very broad term that many people use when describing how they like to vacation. But what does luxury travel really mean? Each person’s definition of luxury may differ based on their history and/or culture. Though most will tell you that luxury travel is commonly associated with comfort, quality, personalized service, and no hassle or stress.

Here at The Dandelion Journals, we know a thing or two about luxury travel. We plan group travel trips for women, taking them to some of the most beautiful parts of the world. While all our trips include the many elements of luxury, we have noticed that not all luxury travelers are the same! Considering commonalities, luxury travelers tend to fall into one of five categories.

Traditional Luxury Traveler

These travelers’ loyalty to luxury brands is evident in their personal style and carries over to their travels. They expect VIP service all the way and tend to prefer conventional five-star hotels and Michelin-starred restaurants. Most people in this category like typical luxury destinations like Paris or London

Glamorous Luxury Traveler

These travelers like lavish things. They tend to be among those who are always seeking out the best Instagram-worthy moments, photo ops, or destinations. They want to be seen and heard. They may be a bit more open to unique destinations and experiences, like staying in an ice hotel in Sweden or an overwater bungalow in the Maldives

Immersive Luxury Traveler

These travelers are looking for authenticity and experiential travel. They like to enjoy off-the-beaten-path activities and may even seek out adventure that helps them explore the traditions of the culture in the destination. They may prefer a luxury safari tent among the elephants or will stay in a boutique hotel with a “hole-in-the-wall” restaurant downstairs that is only known by the locals. 

Undercover Luxury Traveler

These travelers are interesting because they discount and denounce indulgence publicly but, in private, are more of a traditional luxury travelers when they vacation. They feel obligated to have a frugal public persona despite their desire for indulgence with five-star VIP experiences. They might enjoy exploring the coast of Greece or Italy.

Once-in-a-while Luxury Traveler

These travelers tend to be very casual and toggle between budget travel and luxury travel mindsets. They like champagne-taste experiences and accommodations but enjoy beer budgets. They usually don’t see themselves as budget travelers but don’t default to traditional luxury travel styles either as they tend to seek value and deals. This traveler will, however, splurge for special events or on occasion with at least part of a vacation like first-class air or a historic hotel.
