Below mentioned article will give you a brief idea about the top 5 travel trends that will work in 2020 as the world of travel has changed dramatically –
People are talking about green travel and with the rise of carbon offsets for flying or hotels eschewing miniature bottles, it seems like the corporations have caught on. So the predictions for the top 5 travel trends are –
Traveling off the beaten path will be the new goal
As some destinations continue to dominate our social media feeds – Bali, I’m looking at you, there will be a rise in this travel city.
Motivated in part to avoid crowds as well as higher prices, vacationers are beginning to see the benefit of checking out places that are a bit of he old typical way
And the numbers support this. According to some online resources, 54% of the global tourism wants to play a part in reducing the over tourism and 51% interested in swapping destinations for a lesser known but similar alternative.
Big interest in new ways of transport
As flight shame increases, consumers are looking to more and different ways to travel.
In Europe domestic flights are reportedly down in a bid by people to decrease climate change. France has proposed a ban in most of the day to day internal flights.
According to a major online source, over half of travelers don’t mind taking time to reaching their destinations if they are taking an unique mode of transport. As more consumers think about their environmental impact, there will be an increase in interest in older, most sustainable forms of transport like trains or boats.
Motion based travel is the new blue
From walk through’s in beautiful places like the pacific way trial or Camino de Santiago to cycle-based trips in picturesque places like Ireland or Taiwan, motion based travel is having a moment in the travel trends in 2020.
And the numbers back it up. According to a publicist who is apparently UK’s leading cycling vacation specialist, there was a 140% in cycle trip bookings from North America between 2014 and 2018.
Carbon offsetting is on
The entire travel industry is taking note of the climate crisis and doing what it can to mitigate its impact,” says Jonny Bealby, founder and CEO of wild frontiers, which runs small group tours popular with solo wanderers. This starts with flights and greenhouse gas emissions, which travel beyond vice president Jenny Mikkelson says “are a big topic of conversation.”
Travelers will expect tour operators to help with carbon offsets. Wild Frontiers, for example, has been offsetting customers’ flights since 2005, and this year it’s upping the offset amount to 1.5 metric tons (about 3,300 pounds) of carbon dioxide per passenger. Red Savannah’s philanthropic arm, Green Savannah, offsets air travel in partnership with the rain forest trust, a U.S.-based nonprofit that purchases and protects land in threatened rain forest. In 2019 Green Savannah funded Trust projects in Peru’s Amazon and Lao’s Anna mite Mountains.
Microcations get big
“People who used to go [to far-flung destinations] three-plus times a year are now reining in their travel.” Microcations, or shorter trips, are increasingly attractive.
Quicker vacations, which lend themselves to backyard destinations, are not all about saving money. “This time, it’s about experienced travelers looking for ways to manage their impact on the world,” says Edward Piegza, founder and president of classic journey. “As travelers turn their attention to places closer to home, they realize there is no jet lag, there’s no ocean between them, and it’s easy to fit a domestic trip into an otherwise crowded schedule.”
