Car rental is a concept that is becoming more and more successful worldwide. With the proliferation of applications, the service is accessible to everyone and gives users the opportunity to have a personalized experience.
Renting a car is a good way to travel freely. It allows customers to travel at their leisure in places that are naturally spoiled by nature. Germany is a paradise for this kind of activity. Chinese drivers, like most drivers, fantasize about the long German motorways without speed limits.
But who are these travelers?
The Chinese self-driving tourists often travel with their family or friends. The average age is between 30 and 49.
One study showed that the age of travelers had an impact on the length of the trip. For example, the average travel time for a 41-year-old self-diving tourist is 35 days. In comparison, if the age of the traveler is reduced to 24 years old, the average length of the trip will also be impacted and will be reduced to only 18 days.
These young drivers will travel to countries close to China, such as Thailand and Vietnam. We can assume that the more experienced travelers have a larger budget since they travel further: Germany, the United States or New Zealand.
As can be seen in the graph below, by far the most popular destination for Chinese self-driving tourists is the United States. This can be explained by the presence in the country of many mythical highways. I am referring to roads such as Road 66 or California’s Highway 1. For Australia ‘is the same, the popular Great Ocean Road, leads many tourists to be interested in the country.
The last factor we can talk about is the season. During the summer, Chinese travelers are more inclined to rent cars in Europe or the United States.
At the same time, travelers going on sightseeing trips during the Chinese New Year holiday prefer to visit neighboring Asian countries or the continent of Oceania.
