More about the Affluents Will Travel in New Luxury Style in 2015 & Its Methodology
Luxury consumers are surveyed every three months about their travel experiences, spending, attitudes and brand preferences. Affluent luxury consumers are defined by high-income (top 20% based upon income starting at about $100,000) and purchases of any 21 different categories of high-end/luxury good or services, including Luxury Travel. This report includes the results of seven continuous years of quarterly survey results, from 2008-2014.
In addition, a special survey about affluents travel plans for 2015 was conducted in October 2014 among n=1,330 affluent consumers. Average income for the sample was $259k and average age 47.9 years. The results of this study were compared with a comparable survey conducted in 2013 among 1,309 affluent travelers.
The ACTS survey also over samples ultra-affluents ($250,000+), so they weigh more heavily in the final analysis. In a natural distribution ultra-affluents would represent 10-12% of total; in our sample 33% of total sample are ultra-affluents. These ultra-affluents make up the large majority of HNW consumers included in the survey, as well - typically making up 30% of so of the survey sample.
