What will the post-coronavirus traveling look like?
Theorists researching the current travel and the tourism industry trends globally predict that we will have several planning priorities in the next few years.
We will want to plan bigger trips than dreams because you never know what could happen, and we will probably become more flexible than ever.
Back into the wild
In the age of social distance, nature vacations are becoming more and more attractive. Travelers eager for wide expanses and inspiring views long for outdoor locations. The holidays are planned in the form of camping, which becomes a favorite way to spend your vacation in peace and away from everyone and everything.
Many of us will dream of crowded locations, traffic, and classic tourist chaos. Popular beaches, rental houses, large hotels, and busy cities may be low on the wish list, while private villas, boats, and quiet coastal areas, lakes, mountains, and rural areas will be high on the priority list.
Planning a “dream trip.”
Over the next few years, the “dream trip” will probably be planned more often. You know, those trips you want to make once in a lifetime, the ones you tell your grandchildren about. Since the lock has locked us all in and restricted our movements, many will also consider epic long-distance travel worth planning well and saving for. We live in a time when you never know what will happen, and that challenge forces us to rethink our priorities and attitudes.
The paradox of ecology and sustainability
One of the pandemic’s rare benefits is returning to the environment, as global pollution has reached record lows. The industry is on its knees, and major airlines have called on governments to postpone forthcoming policies that will restrict air traffic and reduce emissions. Although advocates for the airlines’ rescue called for strict conditions under the Paris Climate Agreement, the industry’s real picture is suffering huge losses. The plan to reduce pollution will “fall into the water” for now.
Staycation is becoming a necessity
“Passport-free travel” or the well-known term “staycation” has taken on a whole new meaning since the beginning of the global crisis caused by the virus. Therefore, when we can no longer go beyond our countries’ borders, we can find a way to experience a real vacation at our homes. In doing so, we explore and discover the beauties of the country in which we were born or at least currently live, and vacations become more practical and cheaper for our pockets.
