Travel fads come and go, but every now and then a trend hangs on long enough to become engrained in the way we travel. Here are our five favorite trends that we don’t see going anywhere anytime soon!
We live in an age of endless access to information. With the world quite literally at our fingertips, it’s clear to see the impact that travel can have on our environment and the world around us. This increase in awareness has led many travelers to make more mindful decisions when planning their next trip. And no this doesn’t mean using the same towel for an entire week. Rather, traveling in a way that maximizes the positive effects on the planet and its people while mitigating the negative. Learn more about traveling sustainably here.
Being an Airport Lounge Junkie
After spending the majority of 2020 cozied up in our homes, many of us have become accustomed to a new level of comfort. And this level of comfort simply cannot be found sitting in a noisy airport restaurant. Travelers are becoming more airline loyal and, in turn, are reaping the rewards from the serenity of an airport lounge.
Design Forward Hotels
Gone are the days of the standard one-size-fits-all luxury hotel blueprint. Now the designers are the star of the show! With many properties headlining renowned designers much like they do Michelin-star chefs, hotel portfolios big and small are breaking the mold of interior design and incorporating elements that are authentic to their locales.

With a seemingly never-ending stream of notifications, we are in needs of a break now more than ever. Many travelers are focusing their precious vacations days on undergoing a reset. Whether it’s a spa retreat to realign your posture from hunching over a laptop all day, a spiritual sabbatical to reconnect with your soul, or anything in between – transformative travel is essential to fostering a healthy lifestyle.
Traveling Back in Time (or Nostalgia Travel)
Often times we find ourselves searching for the new best thing when it can be found right in front of us. Travel back in time and revisit the places that are home to your favorite memories to relive and create new memories to add to your collection.
