This Report
  • This report uses a number of terms that are
    specific to the Roy Morgan Single Source. These
    are defined below to make it easier to interpret
    and understand the data.
  • Short Trip A holiday or leisure trip of 1 or 2
    nights.
  • Long Trip A holiday or leisure trip of 3 or more
    nights.
  • Next Trip The next holiday to be taken based on
    planned date.
  • Last trip The most recent holiday taken based on
    date of trip.
  • Nett Trip The total of long and short trips.
  • Index The Index expresses how much more or less
    likely than the average (100) the result is.
    For example if people aged 18-24 have an index of
    116 for preference to holiday in NSW on a Short
    Trip, they are 16 more likely than the general
    population to have a preference to visit NSW on a
    Short Trip.

  • Roy Morgan Values Segments
  • The Roy Morgan Values Segments1 provide a
    segmentation of the patterns of thinking and
    responses of people that are drivers of change
    and choice. We use demographics to know who our
    respondents are in terms of their gender, age
    group, socio-demographic status, level of
    education and so on. Values Segments provide a
    second dimension - depth of understanding - that
    helps us explore motivations and reasons for
    purchase and the choices people make.
  • Roy Morgan Values Segments provide insight into
  • How people think
  • What motivates them to act
  • How they perceive themselves (at work/at home)
  • The self image they want to project
  • What they seek in life and their aspirations
  • What type of communication is likely to motivate
    them
  • What channels of communication can effectively
    reach them

Roy Morgan Values Segments
  • The Values Segments1 are based on peoples
    pattern of responses to six distinct dimensions
    of behaviour.
  • The six dimensions are
  • 1. Quality - how high or low are the expectations
    of quality
  • 2. Individualism - how much emphasis on I
    versus We
  • 3. Life Satisfaction - high or low levels of
    satisfaction with life
  • 4. Innovation - level of attraction to new things
    and ideas
  • 5. Conservatism - traditional versus progressive
    social attitudes
  • 6. Price - willingness to pay high or low prices
    per unit
  • A short description of the ten Values Segments,
    including travel behaviour, follows.

Roy Morgan Values Segments
  • BASIC NEEDS
  • (Approximately 3 of the Australian population)
  • This pattern of thinking is usually associated
    with people who are retired, pensioners or people
    on social security payments, who have an active
    community focus to their lives and with people on
    sickness benefits or workers compensation who
    have to reduce their expectations in line with
    their income.
  • Basic Needs have a low incidence of holiday
    travel. When they do travel, they tend to stay
    with friends or relatives, or use accommodation
    within caravan parks. This segment is also more
    likely to use trains as a mode of transport.
    Whilst the primary purpose for travel is to visit
    friends or relatives, they also like to gamble
    (play pokies and bingo) while on holiday. The low
    discretionary income of this segment is reflected
    in the low overall cost of their holidays and
    greater use of package tours.

Roy Morgan Values Segments
  • A FAIRER DEAL
  • (Approximately 5 of the Australian population)
  • This pattern of thinking is generally found
    amongst unskilled and semi-skilled workers who
    left school to start learning from friends who
    share blue denim values. The spectre of
    unemployment, family pressures, the day to day
    struggle with rent and such basic worries as
    keeping wheels on the road - all lead to a
    feeling of getting a raw deal out of life. These
    people are most likely to have a low level of
    satisfaction with their standard of living and
    life as a whole.
  • This segment takes fewer holidays than average.
    They were more likely to stay with friends and
    relatives, go camping, or use cabin
    accommodation. This segment was more likely to
    use buses and trains on holidays. They like
    nature-based holidays, going to pubs and
    nightlife along with visiting friends or
    relatives.

Roy Morgan Values Segments
  • TRADITIONAL FAMILY LIFE
  • (Approximately 20 of the Australian population)
  • This pattern of thinking personifies middle-aging
    Australia-home owners with a relatively stable
    income that meets the needs of a smaller
    household from which the young couples have moved
    out to start their own families and lifestyles.
    Energies revolve around them becoming
    grandparents or getting children home for visits
    or at least to keep in touch. Health and
    spirituality dominates sense of meaning and
    purpose in life and being well-respected in the
    community is very important.
  • People from the Traditional Family Life segment
    are keen holiday tourers, which is reflected in
    the high use of caravans and campervans. A
    planned itinerary is a priority, hence the
    greater use of package tours and bookings through
    tour operators. They tend to stay in comfortable
    but good value accommodation, such as standard
    hotels and motels - they dont want any
    surprises. Sightseeing is an important aspect of
    their holiday experience, with a greater tendency
    to visit museums, art galleries, historical
    places, and wineries. Visiting friends or
    relatives is also an important aspect of the
    TFLs holiday experience.

Roy Morgan Values Segments
  • CONVENTIONAL FAMILY LIFE
  • (Approximately 9 of the Australian population)
  • This pattern of thinking is most closely
    associated with younger and mid-life families
    devoting all their time and efforts into building
    a home to give children the opportunities they
    deserve. Basic living standards are all
    important to them as they strive to improve their
    home, enjoy family life and have enough time to
    keep in touch with their parents and friends.
    Life revolves around the need to live within one
    income whilst meeting never ending demands for
    more time and money to satisfy family needs. A
    part-time job is often required to pay for the
    extras and the childrens education or to save
    for a family holiday.
  • This segment takes fewer holidays than average,
    and tend to travel intrastate in order to meet
    the family budget. They stay in rented
    accommodation with the family, and generally use
    the family car while on holidays. This segment
    participates in outdoor holiday activities, such
    as fishing, swimming and surfing, bike riding and
    horse riding. Fitting with the family theme,
    they are also more likely to visit entertainment
    and theme parks.
