TIA Report Reveals Singles Among Top Travelers
Single traveling households account for 32 percent of all U.S. households and they generate 27 percent of all domestic trips, according to a Travel Industry Association of America report.

The report, "Travel Through the Life Stages," segments singles into four categories: young singles (ages 18-34), middle singles (ages 35-54), older working singles (ages 55+ and employed) and older retired singles (ages 55+ and retired).

According to the report, young singles generated 47.1 million trips in 2001, and 39 percent of this group took short getaways lasting one or two nights. Middle singles typically spend more money than other singles on trips at an average of $462 per trip. Older working singles are more likely than younger singles to visit historical places or museums (14 percent) or attend cultural events or festivals (13 percent) on their trips.
