Travel Trends 2017
Every year more people are traveling internationally. This is a trend formed by many reasons. The global economy is improving and the financial crisis is behind us. The average household can put aside more money for travel and free time. In the same time, more low cost travel companies are starting to operate. The old and big low cost carriers are opening new lines and destinations, which gives more opportunities for adventurers to explore.
Each year the governments are improving travel and visa regulations in order to make their countries more accessible for global tourism and business visitors. Of course, there are exceptions but in general the trend is in favor of the world travelers.
Emerging market trend is the so-called “Bleisure”, meaning combining business and pleasure in one trip. Nowadays more travelers are combing both and more companies are willing to give a few extra days to their employees when they are on business trip to spend some time for pleasure and bring their families on the business trip. This way employees save money and in the same time are more happy on the casual business trip when they can have some fun in the same time doing sightseeing.
Local travel – More people are starting to value experience over different places and events around them. It could be the next state or the neighbor country or close by region that has some experience or adventure to offer. It is not necessary for the trip to be a far remote destination sometimes we could have great moments very close by.
Another emerging trend is the solo tourism. It gains more speed and popularity each year. Reasons for that could be many but mobile technology and easier bookings are making it more accessible and people are not feeling so lonely having all the channels of communication provided by the new technology and social media. For many this experience is more of a self-exploring and enriching experience.
Ecotourism was something new and strange years ago. Today it is very popular and people are more and more conscious about the nature and the environment. It becomes kind of a culture for many travelers how to visit a place and in the same time to preserve it untouched. Leading a life full of stress is motivating many to turn to nature and visit remote places without modern technology and the comfort of the modern city life in search of a comfort for their mind and soul.
