Pampadour definition: get a summary, overview, and a better understanding of this term in the Dauntless Jaunter Travel Glossary.

Updated: 2017-03-27.

To a greater extent than the flashpacker, a pampadour is a luxury traveler; he or she travels the world for the indulgence, pampering themselves in every way possible throughout. Generally fashion-conscious and professional, they may steer clear of “troubling” areas, like places catering to kids, families, adventure, etc. Pampadours differ from vacationers in the sense that luxury probably awaits the pampadour once they return home.

Pampadour is a portmanteau neologism, a word made from two other words, pampered and pompadour, a type of hairstyle.
