Luxury travel trends

How the high-net-worth and mass-affluent will travel in 2022 and beyond

Capitalize on luxury travel trends to increase customer lifetime value.

Ever since the global pandemic caused its first waves across the globe, the world of travel and luxury spending – even among the most affluent – has been rocked. Harnessing exclusive data from our pool of millions of high-net-worth (HNW) and mass affluent members, we’ve monitored the effects of this industry upset to reveal significant changes in their behavior and spending power, compared to 2019 before the initial rumblings of the pandemic were felt.

From private jets and vacation rentals to wellness staycation and ‘bleisure’ travel, we’ve used this data to define current and future travel trends. What’s more, we’ve identified how these changes can be capitalized on to increase customer lifetime value from engagement, spend or assets under management and retention.



Who is the case study for?

Brands, private bankers, and wealth managers with a valued customer base, focused on mass affluent, high-net-worth wealth propositions. These insights will be of particular interest to those developing or reviewing their customer experience (CX) strategies, or to those undergoing procurement of lifestyle services (or concierge).

The paper will also provide valuable insights for premium and luxury suppliers in the travel industry looking to understand the potential changes in customer preferences and behaviors.


What questions does it answer?
  • How have HNW and mass affluent consumer behaviors changed since before Covid-19?
  • What travel trends are emerging amongst this demographic?
  • What are the leading brands prioritizing to plan for a strong recovery? 
  • How lifestyle services are used as a differentiator in CX strategies?
  • In what ways did Ten Lifestyle Group support members during and since the pandemic?
