Nearly half of US millennials are members of a travel loyalty or rewards program, the highest among all generations, according to a Morning Consult survey. The higher their income, the more likely US adults are to belong to such a program—more than three-quarters of those earning $100,000 or more hold a membership.
Beyond the chart: The overall cost of travel in the US was up 11% YoY as of February, according to NerdWallet’s Travel Price Index. Even so, nearly a third of US consumers plan to travel more this year, per The NPD Group’s polling from last December, so travelers will likely turn to loyalty and rewards programs even more for perks or discounts.
