Travel is good for the soul. Immersed in new surroundings you learn, explore and experience the unknown, which broadens your mind and makes you grow as a human. Turns out, travel provides some additional benefits.

The US Travel Association launched a project this year called The Travel Effect, a multi-year, multimillion dollar research and marketing campaign to study and publicize the benefits of travel. “What we’ve long known anecdotally, we will now prove through authoritative research: travel has a positive effect on health, relationships, business performance and the well-being of communities,” said Roger Dow, president and CEO of the U.S. Travel Association.

Below are a few statistics revealed by The Travel Effect.

  • 57% of people who traveled as a children went to COLLEGE.
  • Adults who went on domestic education trips during their youth EARN $5000 MORE OR 12% GREATER INCOME than those who took no trips.
  • 85% of talent managers at “use it or lose it PTO” organizations agree that employees who take time off are “more productive in jobs.”
  • Family vacation memories last a lifetime, 62% of adults remember vacation from a young age.
