Many people dream of going on trips. Some people do it for fun, while a few do it as part of their job.
Travelers can be put into three groups because everyone has their own preferences, likes and dislikes, and deal-makers (and deal-breakers).
How do you know?
1. The adventurous traveler on a tight budget.

You are a busy person who likes to travel to new places whenever your schedule lets you.
Every year, you make it a point to plan at least one trip abroad. But you also like the places close to home that you go to with your best friends for a shorter time.
After watching Eat, Pray, Love or reading books similar to it, you're on a mission to find out who you really are.
2. The person with a family who needs a break badly.

You are definitely tied down to a full schedule. So when you book travel, you tend to go for things that are straight to the point instead of ones that require you to jump through a lot of hoops.
But you also have two young kids and a spouse who make it a point to plan trips for the whole family at least twice a year, whether they're in the same country or somewhere else. This is a way to spend time together.
Even though you wish you could leave your kids with their grandparents while you go on vacation with your partner, you both know that what's most important is making good memories so that your family can look at old photos and say, "Remember when we went to Bali?"
3. The business traveler who is always on the go because he or she is always busy.

Imagine this: You are in charge of business around the world for a major multinational pharmaceutical company. Your job means that you have to travel anywhere from two to three times a month.
You probably stay in the same few hotels in the same cities and region most of the time, but sometimes you travel to places that aren't on your usual list of work stops. When it comes to traveling, you want everything to be as organized and set up as you are.
4. A traveler with sharp eyes who is always looking for the best deals.

People in your group of friends know you as the one who always knows about the best travel deals.
In fact, when it comes to traveling, you have your own plan, like clearing your cache often and using "private browsing" on airline and booking sites to keep cookies from following you around.
You also know when and where to find travel deals. Because of this, you're proud of the fact that not only have you traveled the world, but you've also been to many countries while saving a lot of money.
