What Are Traveler Types?

Our tips are personalized to your interests and passions.

You’ll recognize color-coded traveler type profiles in our travel guides, itineraries, and attraction pages to help you quickly decide whether something is suited to your travel style.

We standardize these profiles across all Forever Break travel content so you can easily find relevant content and ideas when planning your next vacation.

Note: it's worth clarifying that "traveler types" are not exhaustive and most people don't fit squarely in only 1 profile - they could span 2, 3 or even 5, depending on the location, season, travel group, and mood.

So have some fun and find out what's your traveler type.
