Summer time and kids out of school are synonymous with family vacations. And a new study shows that U.S. Hispanics (USH) are spending more money overall than non-Hispanics when enjoying a break from work with their families.
The research recently presented at the National Tour Association’s (NTA) Travel Exchange conference shows that USH spend around $2,400 on a vacation trip, 20% more than non-Hispanics. This difference is even higher, 30%, when comparing average spending per vacation by affluent Hispanics and affluent non-Hispanics.
“Vacations for the U.S Hispanic and Latino consumers mean going out on a trip with the whole family, sharing and enjoying the experience as a group,” says Dieste CEO Greg Knipp. This insight was recently used on a campaign developed by Dieste for one of our biggest clients.

It is also important to highlight that in general, U.S Hispanic and Latino families are bigger than non-Hispanic counterparts. Therefore it is not a surprise that the majority of USH families (74%) prefer road trips rather than flying when traveling within the U.S.
