The travel industry is working on year-round tourism. Travel will be based less on peak season and off-season as more than 50% of travellers believe that large crowds are taking away from experiences. There will be more travel choices available for autumn, winter and spring trips.
Continuing with one of 2018’s top travel trends, culinary travel continues with more foodie tours from city centre food tours to countryside wine and cheese tasting.
Continuing the trend from 2019, travellers will be frequenting sustainable properties and accommodations and researching what they are actively doing.
Travellers are planning more surprise trips for milestone birthdays and anniversaries at secluded destinations – as the search for quiet and relaxing vacations increase.
Travellers will be frequenting undiscovered and off-the-beaten-track getaways such as eco-friendly island destinations.
Travellers are going back in time with a camera in hand and leaving the beach for historical excursions around old buildings and sights such as castles, chateaus and citadels.
Travellers are increasingly heading towards the countryside than staying in the city or cramming all the city sights into a few days.
Travellers of all ages are exchanging extensive sightseeing for fewer immersive experiences such as cultural interactions and new activities.
Travellers are taking the hassle out of travel and booking guided trips and tours to spend more quality time with family and friends while on vacation. With our tailor-made itineraries, you won’t have to stress about a thing.
While millennials continue to research holidays on social media, most travellers are considering a digital detox and are leaving technology behind. Unplug by filling your days with mountain hikes, morning yoga and evening swims.
