Scorpios Outspend Virgos On Vacation, New Study Finds

Research reveals zodiac sign influence on vacation spending habits; Scorpios top the list with $2,927 average budget.

According to new research, Scorpios are the most generous vacation spenders, averaging $2,927 per vacation.

A survey of 2,000 American travelers split by zodiac sign found that Virgos aren’t far behind in terms of spending, with their average vacation budget being $2,913.

Although air signs (Aquarians, Geminis and Libras) claimed to be the most money-conscious on vacation (73%), it was Tauruses who came out with the lowest average at $2,240.

Conducted by OnePoll for CheapCaribbean, the survey found that this summer, a majority of all respondents are looking forward to spending most of their time outside of the house (59%), especially Capricorns (65%) and Pisces (66%).

Fire signs (Aries, Leos and Sagittariuses) are also keen on getting out this summer (57%).

Similarly, 59% are making it a goal to do something fun every week — Cancers, in particular (64%).

Nearly two-thirds of those surveyed also agree that traveling is one of their favorite things to do (64%), with Geminis and Pisces having a particular affinity for seeing new places (68% each).

Of those polled, the average respondent takes two vacations a year, and one in 10 said that vacations are necessary at least every three months.

When it comes to traveling, Cancers (44%) and other water signs (Pisces and Scorpios, 40%) are likeliest to book a last-minute vacation.

These respondents also tied with fire signs for leaving packing to the last minute (33% each).

One in four respondents have a “lucky item” they always take on vacation, especially Aquarians or Pisces (28% each).

Generally, Sagittariuses appeared to be most superstitious about traveling on this day (29%) while other signs are more concerned about other travel superstitions, such as Tauruses avoiding meteor showers (18%) and Leos looking out for full moons (11%).

Looking at where they’re going, the most popular kinds of vacation spots among the signs are family-friendly destinations (36%) and tropical getaways (28%).

However, Geminis (29%) and Capricorns (28%) are the only ones to prefer amusement parks over beachy destinations.

When it comes to planning versus going with the flow, the signs are split: Geminis (44%), Leos (48%), Virgos (44%), Sagittariuses (41%) and Pisces (42%) plan things out.

On the flip side, Aries (40%), Tauruses (43%), Cancers (47%), Libras (46%), Scorpios (42%) and Aquarians (43%) go with the flow. Capricorns are the only sign whose respondents were evenly split on their preference.

While the top vacation activity among respondents is sightseeing, water signs unsurprisingly have a slight affinity for the beach (37%).
