Research conducted by Expedia Group Media Solution finds that kids have more influence over the holidays planning of a family. That means adults make their holidays planning as per their kids’ interest. Generation Alpha, kids born in 2010 and onwards, spend most of their time online and have more technical knowledge as compared to adults. Hence they play an essential role in family holiday plannings.

The research also reveals that out of the whole Generation Alpha, 46 % have computer knowledge, and 58% use smartphones to interact with their family. Therefore, 60 percent of parents have told that their travel planning is based on their kids’ information. As per the sources of Nashville News, the present advanced technology has developed the mind and perception power of Generation Alpha, which made them influence their parents’ decision on any topic.

Generation Alpha has not only influenced their parents decisions regarding holiday planning, but they also play a vital role during accommodations, locations, and transportation selections. Approximately 50 percent of family vacationers choose their transportation medium by keeping in mind how quickly they will reach to the destination. Forty percent give priority to accommodation, location, and family convenience.

Andrew Van der Feltz, senior director at Expedia Group, said, “Despite their young age, Generation Alpha is already playing an active role in family travel inspiration and planning, and they’re influencing trip decisions for the entire family.” He stated further that, “Gen Alpha is expected to be more educated, wealthier and live longer than any generation before them, resulting in great potential for the travel industry. By understanding their interests and influence on family travel today, and how their parents and grandparents are including them in travel discussions, we can better prepare for the future.”
