A new survey conducted by TCRS and the Global Coalition on Aging (GCOA) connects Americans’ dreams of traveling in retirement and the need to financially prepare for travel as part of a healthy aging process. The survey found that although Americans both aspire to travel and are beginning to recognize the physical and mental benefits of traveling, they are not saving sufficiently to make these goals a reality.

This research was commissioned by and completed in collaboration with the U.S. Travel Association as part of the Travel Effect campaign.
