The property management franchise explored the changing world of travel and tourism in a recent blog post.
In the words of Luke Stays, “Travel trends are expected to change in fierce ways by the end of 2022 and beyond. We have entered a new decade and everything around us is changing – including travel.” The property management franchise with a huge portfolio to its name and a wealth of property and travel expertise then detailed five trends to watch out for in 2022 and beyond:
- Growing numbers of young travellers - More young holidaymakers are in the mix, and many are searching for an adventure experience, rather than a simple beach break. As Luke Stays explained, “If they do go to the beach, it’s usually somewhere exotic like the Maldives or other off-beat tropical destinations.”
- Increased focus on sustainable travel - Undertourism and overtourism are things that more and more people are becoming attentive to, leading them towards “seeking sustainable means of travelling that allow them to explore the world while preserving global destinations”.
- More working vacations - “The ‘workcation’ trend took off during the recent [COVID] health crisis, with many people choosing to trade their stereotypical 9-to-5 job for a month abroad with their laptops.”
- More spontaneous trips - In 2022, demand for spontaneous travel is on the rise again, bouncing back post-COVID.
- More widespread use of technology - “As of 2022, technology will remain popular among travellers with 62% saying it helps them cope with travel anxiety.” Plus, 69% of people would be interested in technology that “could predict which countries are safe to travel to”.
