A vector by definition is an object with magnitude AND direction.

Does displacement have magnitude and direction?

One finds that with displacement, you have to know how many units you're moving (magnitude of displacement) as well as where you are going (direction of displacement).

Thus yes, you are correct. Displacement is a vector quantity.
