You never need a reason to travel and explore, but traveling in celebration for milestone birthdays has grown in popularity. In fact, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch recently published an entire article about the popularity of planning milestone birthday events, whether they are travel-related, party-related or just something low key. We plan milestone birthday trips every week for every age: 21, 30, 40, 50, 60; we’ve even helped a client celebrate their 85th birthday celebration on a train journey through Canada!
The biggest trend we see in group celebration travel is the all-Inclusive resort. Destinations such as Jamaica, Punta Cana, Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Maya offer amazing resort options that cater to all ages, budgets and preferences. Travelers love all-inclusive options because all expenses are included for one price and they can celebrate their special day without worrying about the cost of a celebratory cocktail or dessert, etc. We work with the resort to provide group discounts and various types of private celebrations while guests are on property.
Many of our clients also venture further away to more remote islands like Hawaii, Tahiti, St. Lucia, Nevis, Turks & Caicos, Virgin Gorda and beyond. These bucket list island destinations make for amazing memories for the birthday girl/guy, and it is a fabulous way to spend time together with family and friends.
We also book countless European getaways for milestone birthdays. Often people save these special birthdays for more elaborate trips such as Italy, Ireland, Paris, Spain, and Greece. We see couples, entire families, or small groups of friends gather for a getaway to these locations.
Many times, multiple milestone birthdays occur among several of the guests traveling together, making the trip all the more celebratory.
None of our requests have seemed too crazy. We’ve had a request or two for Cuba and although that hasn’t been an option for a number of years, even Cuba might be available before we know it. Just about any location a traveler can think of, we can help get them there.
When clients ask us our favorite location to celebrate a milestone birthday, each of our agents will probably give you a different answer. Mine personally is Turks & Caicos, but you will likely hear Italy, Bermuda, Switzerland, Alaska, and Paris.
If you have a milestone birthday on the horizon or know someone who does, give your St. Louis travel agents at Travel Leaders a call. We’ll help you celebrate your special day in style!
