A beautiful infographic has been released by TripLingo showcasing the most frequently travelled-to destinations as well as average expenditure, income, occupation and times of year chosen to travel. The graphic offers some useful insights into the habits of US-based travellers. It would be even more interesting, however, if the data was segmented further. Where do business travellers go vs backpackers? What times of year do they travel? How does that compare to last year?
We can’t complain too much though, this is pretty much exactly the sort of graphic we were looking for after sharing the Fourquare infographic with you last month of how US travellers move around inside their country.
A Profile of American Travelers Overseas

On stand out statistic from the graphic is that almost twice as many Americans visit Mexico compared with all of Europe, the convenience of proximity seemingly making it a very popular all-round destination despite Europe being a far larger hub for business and commerce.
What do you think of the travel habits of the average American? Are they accurate? Are there any other patterns which you’ve seen yourself?
