Air Travel

What kind of traveller are you?


The last Global Travel Intentions Survey from Visa reveals that, on average, travellers plan to make four international trips over the next two years. So what kind of traveller are you? Do you plan your holiday right to the smallest detail or are you the kind that uses the free airplane toothbrush because you left yours at home? Do you like to use your holiday as an opportunity to empty your savings or do you like to travel on a shoestring? However you like to travel, keeping tabs on your money can be the difference between forgetting your worries and enjoying every moment or fretting about what’s left in your wallet and coming home with the holiday blues.  

Take the quiz to find out your travel personality type and get some quick money tips to really make the most out of your trip!

  • 33% of airlines are accepting payments from mobile devices
  • 50% of airlines are able to accept payments via self-service kiosks
