Fun Facts about Travel and the Travel Industry

A PRIME Insurance Special Feature

11 Travel-Related Facts to Ponder

  1. More than 74 million employees in the US have jobs related to travel and tourism.

  2. As per air travel personnel protocol, the pilot and co-pilot will not partake in the same menu of a meal. The reason for this is to lower the risk of both getting food poisoning at the same time so that at least one will be physically-able to fly the plane.

  3. In order to aid in lowering carbon emissions environmentalists suggest travelers minimize long-distance air travel.

  4. For those that fear air travel, this is comforting: associated accidents occur much less frequently than when using other modes of travel.

  5. Travel insurance can pay for medical costs related to situations that are not preexisting, as well as other losses from mishaps that occur on your trip.

  6. The famous Autobahn highway in Germany does not have speed limits on most of the roadway.

  7. Whether by air, boat, car, bus or train, travel has been touted as good for your physical and emotional health.

  8. Studies indicate that in the long-run, money spent on travel gives you more satisfaction than buying material things you crave.

  9. Travel does not need to be overtly expensive. You can enjoy a vacation based on cheaper travel and hotel or motel stays – or even opt for camping out in a tent under the stars, with delicious food cooked over an open fire.

  10. Jet lag – the tired feeling one gets after experiencing travel where the hour difference is profound is more pronounced in journeys from west to east.
