A lifelong goal for many people is to see the world. Some people do it as a leisure activity, while others include it into their professional lives to some degree.
Travelers can be divided into three categories because to the fact that each person has their own set of preferences, including their own particular set of likes and dislikes, as well as deal makers (and deal breakers).
Which one do you belong to?
1. the budget-conscious but intrepid traveler

You are a dynamic person who takes pleasure in exploring new places whenever the circumstances of your schedule allow it.
You make it a habit to organize at least one trip to a foreign country each year. Nevertheless, you also value the local destinations, which are defined as locations that you go to with your close friends for a shorter amount of time.
After viewing movies or reading books in a similar spirit to "Eat, Pray, Love," you're on a mission to find out who you really are and how you got to where you are today.
2. The individual who prioritizes their family yet is in serious need of a vacation

You have most certainly roped yourself into a hectic schedule for the foreseeable future. When it comes to making travel reservations, you probably prefer dealing with matters that are less complicated and go straight to the point, rather of going through procedures that require you to jump through a number of hoops.
However, you also have two small children and a spouse who make it a priority to schedule family vacations at least twice a year, regardless of whether they are domestic or international. This can serve as a type of bonding moment for the group.
Even though you have the desire to take a vacation with your significant other and leave your children in the care of their grandparents, the two of you agree that the most important thing is to make happy memories for your family so that they can look at old pictures and say things like, "Remember when we went to Bali?"
3. The extremely harried business traveler who is continuously moving from one location to another.

Imagine the following: You've been promoted to the position of worldwide business director of a major multinational pharmaceutical corporation. Because of the nature of your employment, you are required to travel anywhere from two to three times every single month.
You probably stay in the same handful of hotels in the same cities and region time and time again, but occasionally your work takes you to locations that are outside of the typical range of places you visit for business. You want everything to be as well structured and arranged as you are when it comes to the requirements for your trip.
4. The shrewd shopper who is always on the lookout for the most affordable accommodations and activities

You are well known among your friends for being the one that is always up to speed on the most recent travel bargains since you always remain on top of it.
When it comes to flying, you in fact have a strategy of your own, which includes routinely emptying your browser's cache and using the anonymous browsing mode on airline and booking websites to prevent having your online activity tracked by cookies.
You are also aware of the times and locations of sales on travel fares. As a result of this, you are pleased with the fact that you have not only gone throughout the world, but that you have also seen numerous countries while maintaining a significant financial advantage.
