Leisure travel typically refers to a vacation-type trip that’s taken in one’s free time and for one’s own pleasure and entertainment. It can be done with the family, with a partner, with friends, or alone.
Leisure travel usually includes various pleasurable activities such as sightseeing, relaxing on the beach, experiencing local attractions, and so on.
Leisure travel is naturally contrasted with business travel which implies working while on the trip. However, sometimes the boundaries between the two are blurred, creating opportunities for other travel types such as bleisure, workation, etc.
