Like any other industries, the sector of travel and tourism has been making changes on how they will approach potential travelers to take a dive and explore the world. To achieve that goal, travel industry experts are coming to make some changes to entice the new generation of jet-setters and globetrotters.
These changes will definitely make travelers more excited to book their trips as it would cater to their traveling needs and tastes. Some of the biggest names in travel industry divulge some of the things that tourists and travelers can expect this year:
2018 is all about empowering people on making decisions, including tourists and travelers. Back then, most tourists rely on travel agencies on arranging their trips – from itinerary to their accommodations. This year, tourists and travelers are given a hand on how they want their trip to happen. Some travel agencies already started offering customized trips to tourists who wants to handpick their vacation details. But this also comes with a price. However, the service will be worth every penny.
A lot of travelers today are looking for spaces that can help them forget the hustle of city lives. This is the reason why most hotels and accommodations are renovating their spaces and infusing nature to their design. Also, local inns and villages are opening their doors to tourists and travelers who want to experience living closely with nature, even if it is just temporary.
Back then, one of the most common reasons why people travel is to escape their busy lives. But this year, it will be more about gaining amazing travel experience than escaping the city life. This change in travel perspective will also change the way most travel packages and itinerary will be made. Trips will be experienced-based and every activity incorporated in the itinerary will be purposeful.
Technology has already made its way in the tourism industry with the rise of platforms like Airbnb. But in 2018, technology will be incorporated in a different way to further provide excellent service and travel experience. Some high-end hotels are already doing some test-runs by incorporating robot butlers and smart hotel rooms that will give convenience to guests.
The rise of Airbnb paved way for more travelling apps to emerge last year. Expect that this trend will continue to grow in 2018, with more features that can help travels and tourists book and arrange their trips.
