Travel Style

Types of Traveller I went to many site looking for this answer, I cam up with about 100 different types of travelers. Collector, Conformist, Thrill-Seeker, Escapist, Self-Improver, Pilgrim, Pioneer, Occasional, Oblivious, Curious, Holiday Makers, Functional, Backpackers, Gap Year’ers, Weekenders, Groupies, Tech-Savvy, Planner, Adventure, Partier, Fashionista, Chill-Out, Recharge Retreaters, Budget Conscious, Typical Tourists, Feeble, Soul Searchers, Guidebook Follower, Resort Hopper, RV Travellers, City Slickers, Complainer, Chatty, Business, Expedition, Long Term, Children, Elderly, Pregnant, Disabled, Family, Food. to name a few. My list is more practical than others I have seen. I grouped them into budget types. Low, Middle, Upper, Wealthy

Low income These people will be the Backpackers. Backpacking is a term that has historically been used to denote a form of low-cost, independent international travel. Terms such as independent travel and budget travel are often used.

Middle income These people will travel on a budget, they have saved for a long time to get to travel.

Upper income These people will travel to a holiday destination for a typical resort holiday. Many travel to European resorts in Mediterranean countries like Spain, Italy or Greece in search of the sun or to France and Switzerland on skiing holidays.

Wealthy income These people will travel anywhere they have the bug to. no mind on money or anything.

Holidaymakers These people will travel to a holiday destination for a typical resort holiday. Many travel to European resorts in Mediterranean countries like Spain, Italy or Greece in search of the sun or to France and Switzerland on skiing holidays.


Business Travellers This group of travellers for the main part fall into the same category as the previous group in so far as they are never far from medical assistance when it is required. The main difference being that the majority will be travelling to cities rather than holiday resorts. A small group however, will occasionally travel to more remote areas in the course of their business. In this instance, a small medical kit for treating minor ailments will be of great value and convenience. The information supplied in this site will also prove valuable to these travellers.

Backpackers & Adventure Travellers Backpacking is a term that has historically been used to denote a form of low-cost, independent international travel. Terms such as independent travel and budget travel are often used.

Adventure travel can be defined as: a vacation or trip to a natural environment or remote location with the specific purpose of active physical participation and exploration of a new experience. Nowadays many specialist companies and organizations can design a personalized itinerary that suits your individual adventure travel desires.

Expedition Members An expedition typically refers to a long journey or voyage undertaken for a specific purpose. Very often they involve travel to remote and/or mountainous regions of the planet and require a certain degree of physical fitness in order to carry out the various activities required.

Long Term Travellers This group includes embassy staff, voluntary workers, missionaries, etc. intending to stay several years in a country. Some people intend to emigrate permanently whilst others may only intend to visit relatives for an extended period. Sometimes backpackers fall into this category e.g. those who take a year out to backpack "round the world".

Travellers with Special Needs

1. Children Parents should take special care when travelling with young children and being prepared in advance is important. Special seating arrangements in planes can often be arranged if advance notice is given. Prepare for possible travel sickness. Boredom during travel can be relieved by books or toys.

2. Elderly Travellers More and more elderly people are now travelling abroad for holidays and to visit relatives. Special holidays can be arranged but age does not give natural protection against disease.

3. Travel During Pregnancy Travelling during pregnancy is usually possible and with the proper precautions, and armed with information on when to travel, vaccinations and insurance, most women can travel safely well into their pregnancy.

4. Disabled Travellers Travelling with a disability is now commonplace and there is no reason why this should pose serious problems if good preparations are made. The more you know about a place, the less likely you are to experience problems or obstacles, so before you travel, do your homework.
