Millennials are enjoying a more luxurious lifestyle than previous generations, according to a new survey.

Research comparing the lives of different age groups shows younger British people are more likely to live a better, more fulfilled life than older people did when they were the same age.

The survey found half of the 18 to 37-year-olds surveyed believe they experience more '"luxury" than their parents did, with fewer responsibilities and a "different lifestyle".

It found three in 10 British millennials get more opportunity to indulge themselves while travelling than they do at home.

The average British person goes on holiday twice a year and has visited 11 different countries, but 64 per cent said they are still looking to book a more exotic holiday every year, with women (68 per cent) more likely to feel this way than men (60 per cent).

In total, 47 per cent of millennials go on two or more holidays a year, compared with 43 per cent of Generation X and 39 per cent of baby boomers.

The research, commissioned by MSC Cruises, also found the Maldives is considered the most luxurious destination, followed by Seychelles and Dubai.
