The last two years have greatly impacted how we live, work, and travel. With restrictions around the globe easing, and travel making a BIG comeback, let’s take a look at a few of the top travel trends for 2023 and beyond!
Revenge travel has never been hotter, and big bucket-list trips are taking travelers (and travel advisors) by storm. With all of the time spent at home, in lockdown, teaching your kids through remote schooling, and saving money that would ordinarily be spent on vacations– travelers are ready to go all out on their next escape.
Active travelers are planning treks across the Serengeti or looking to scale Machu Pichu. Luxury lovers are considering pampered stays at the Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris, or yachting across the Med, and honeymooners are dreaming about not just one, but two or more honeymoon destinations – all rolled into a loved-up mega getaway!
More employees are taking their laptops on the road and blurring the lines between work and play. Whether it’s a weeklong escape to a cabin or a month-long tropical getaway, as long as there’s a WiFi connection – workcations can be made possible.
While gracing the 2022 travel trends list, workcations are not new. Digital nomads have been plugging away on their laptops for years in the jungles of Costa Rica, the beaches of Mexico, and at cafes in Paris. Now it’s just an option for an increasing number of remote workers.
Something else that we’ve all done a lot lately is staying home. While there’s great comfort in your own space, there’s also something to be said for soft high-thread-count sheets, room service, and uninterrupted quiet time.
For individuals who are unable to travel, staycations can provide the perfect antidote. Local spa visits and hotel stays. Discovering nearby attractions. Travelers don’t need to venture far to relax, unwind, or explore somewhere new.
Travel is deeply personal, and for many, their trip is built around a specific theme or desire to learn.
Growing with popular demand is voluntourism (combining your holiday with giving back). Culinary tourism (with a focus on regional cuisine, chefs, and cooking classes). Agro Tourism (visiting working farms or ranches), polar tourism, and even getting in line for space exploration.
