'TRAVEL Tourism industry focuses on seniors Baby boomers are expected to dominate travel market in future By MIKE SCHNEIDER The Associated Press LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — For just about three weeks every year, Gene and Barb Haggar toss some light clothes into their suitcases and set off for warmer climates, leaving behind their home in frigid Sioux Falls, S.D. In the past year alone, the couple — he's a retired grocer who sells cars these days, she's a bookkeeper and insurance saleswoman — have been to San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Calif., and New York. Their latest trip landed them at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom, where they waited patiently for the Main Street afternoon parade. "We just wanted to get away to where it's warm," said Barb, 66, as she sat on the curb beside her 70-year-old husband. . Whether it's the weather, or simply a desire to see the country, the increasing number of older travelers like the Haggars are making the tourism industry take notice. Mature tourists, age 55 and up, make up almost a third of all U.S. travelers. Their ranks are growing swiftly as baby boomers, some 78 million strong, enter their golden years, according to a recent study by the Travel Industry Association of America. Travel packages offered Companies such as Walt Disney World and Loews Hotels have taken notice and have begun offering packages geared toward mature travelers, particularly grandparents. "The potential of the mature market is tremendous because in less than a year the first members of the huge baby boom generation will turn 55 years old," said William S. Norman, president and CEO of the Travel Industry Association. "The travel industry should be prepared for explosive growth in the mature consumer market." Although baby boomers currently make up the highest share of domestic trips, at 45 percent, travelers older than age 55 will be the fastest-growing in the near future. The mar- "The travel industry should be prepared for explosive growth in the mature consumer market." William S. Norman president of Travel Industry Association ket for mature travelers — there are about 58.8 million people aged 55 and older in the United States ~ is expected to increase in size by 28 percent between 2000 and 2010, the study says. Today's mature travelers are better educated, richer and more technologically savvy than their predecessors, according to the study Almost half are college-educated, more than a quarter have an annual household income of more than $75,000 and more than half own a computer, which they can use to make travel plans. The tourism industry is catching on. Disney readies out Disney has been marketing to empty-nesters for some time, but recently decided to reach out to grandparents after seeing large numbers of them traveling with their grandchildren on cruise ships. Disney recently launched a national television campaign selling a travel package starting at $424 per grandparent and $220 per child under age 9. It includes three days of lodging, theme park tickets, breakfast with Disney characters and an autograph book for each grandchild. "Today's grandparents are more physically and fiscally capable to do things like this with the grandchildren, whereas in the past, many grandparents were typically older," said Linda Warren, a Disney World executive vice president.
