Traveling is a desire for many people. Some people do it as a hobby, while a select few do it as their day-to-day work.
Travelers can be divided into three groups because they all have different tastes, as well as distinct likes, dislikes, and deal-breakers.
Who are you, exactly?
1. The daring, inexpensive traveler.

You're a dynamic individual who enjoys exploring new places whenever your schedule permits.
Every year, you make it a point to arrange one trip abroad. However, you also value the nearby locations, which you visit for a shorter length of time with your close pals.
After viewing Eat, Pray, Love or reading novels in the same vein, you're secretly, deeply, deeply on a quest to find your true self.
2. The family member who is in severe need of a vacation.

Undoubtedly, your busy schedule has you occupied. In order to avoid having to jump through unnecessary hurdles, you prefer processes that are more straightforward when making travel reservations.
However, you also have two small children and a spouse who make it a point to plan at least two annual family vacations, whether they are domestic or abroad. This serves as a moment for connecting.
Even though you might have wanted to leave your kids with their grandparents and go on vacation with your spouse, what matters most to you both is making wonderful memories so that your family can look back on old pictures and say, "Remember that time we traveled to Bali?"
3. The constantly on the go, extremely busy business traveler.

Imagine this: You manage the business operations for a major multinational pharmaceutical corporation. You must travel anywhere between two and three times every month due to the nature of your job.
Even if you have your regular pit breaks (perhaps the same few hotels in the same cities and region), you occasionally travel to locations outside of your typical work destinations. You want everything to be as well-planned and arranged for your trip as you are.
4. The astute traveler who is constantly searching for the finest offers.
