Gen Z: Trading Vacations for Relocations

Gen Z: Trading Vacations for Relocations


Gen Z, the generation born between 1997 and 2012, is known for its entrepreneurial spirit, social consciousness, and digital fluency. They are also the first generation to come of age in the era of social media and the gig economy. These factors have shaped their attitudes towards work, travel, and life in general.

In recent years, there has been a trend among Gen Z to trade vacations for relocations. This is due to a number of factors, including:

  • The desire to live in more affordable cities and towns

  • The rise of remote work and the gig economy

  • The increasing cost of travel

  • A desire for a more immersive cultural experience

For many Gen Zers, the idea of owning a home or settling down in one place is not appealing. Instead, they prefer to be more mobile and to have the opportunity to live in different places. This is leading to a growing trend of Gen Zers choosing to relocate to new cities and towns, often for work or for lifestyle reasons.


This trend is having a number of implications for the travel industry. For example, there is a growing demand for short-term rentals and co-living spaces. There is also a growing interest in experiential travel and activities that allow travelers to immerse themselves in local cultures.
