Let’s talk about travel trends!

These days, it is becoming more and more common for people to spend their vacations in different parts of the world. From Paris to Barcelona, from London to New York everyone has a favorite destination. Europe is one of the most popular destinations for luxurious vacations. It offers a variety of places and cultures that can be explored and enjoyed by tourists.

Countries like France and Italy have many historical landmarks that you should visit if you find yourself in Europe. The United States also offers a lot of interesting destinations for tourists with luxurious tastes. Countries like Hawaii, Las Vegas and California are famous among travelers who enjoy surfing or other water sports such as scuba diving or snorkeling near coral reefs.

But what are the few luxury travel trends around the globe? Let’s find out!

1. Safe Travel -

The effects of the global pandemic have been devastating for the travel industry and the travelers themselves. Over the next several years, it is essential that destinations and hotels provide visitors with a safe and reassuring experience. Luxury travelers will increasingly choose their destination based on perceived safety and vaccine uptake. Another key consideration is the ease of PCR testing. In terms of accommodation, luxury villas and private swimming pools are in great demand.

Wealthy travelers are willing to spend more, even for in-room gyms. Some luxury hotels in the Maldives have doctors on-site and offer free PCR tests to their guests. Temperature control, better cleaning of rooms between guests, social distancing in restaurants and common areas are a must. However, simply observing these precautions is not enough to reassure potential customers. Members of the luxury tourism industry should actively promote these security measures on their websites, with additional safeguards provided in the booking confirmation.

2. Personalized Travel -

Well, this is the most important part of a luxury trip is to create a personalized experience. This personalization can begin before the guests arrive if you send them information specific to their needs. A short survey asking their preferences on things like a newspaper and an alarm clock will save them time when they arrive at your property. Ask if they are celebrating a special occasion and when it is.

You can also send a link to tourist information about the destination, such as helpful tips from the hotel concierge posted on your hotel website. Personalized welcome notes are always little touches. Even better if they feature an impression of your hotel, accompanied by homemade cookies. Some hotels even print a picture of guests taken from their social media accounts and frame it.

3. Flexibility -

A soft approach won’t work with today’s luxury-savvy travelers. Instead, people seek flexibility and a genuine attitude from luxury brands. The free cancellation will reassure travelers concerned about the government’s ever-changing travel guidelines. Early check-in and late check-out whenever possible is a very important wish list for most travelers.

Flexible routes are also needed. Micro-trips are on the increase and 7-night vacations are less frequent than in the past. Luxury tour operators offering shorter trips will certainly benefit. Cruises have traditionally been fairly standardized, especially in terms of dining options. Guests had to choose between having dinner sooner or later and staying with the same table and the other guests on their cruise. These days, flexible meals are available on most luxury cruises.

4. Frictionless Travel -

As travel has become more complicated, luxury travelers are looking for ways to make their trips less difficult. Frictionless travel is the idea that people are looking for. If you can optimize your customers’ experience, they’ll reward you with a private car to take them to and from the airport or allow pre-check-in through an app. Smart technology is helping businesses move closer to the goal of hassle-free travel. Passengers, especially business travelers, are increasingly looking for information before traveling.

Thanks to new technologies, they can receive this information in real-time. Mobile apps can provide your customers with everything from newsletters to restaurant recommendations and traffic updates. Many luxury hotel chains have implemented smart rooms where guests can control lighting, heating, and music through apps. Some also allow you to book wellness treatments at the hotel spa. Another aspect of frictionless travel is safety. Wealthy travelers will appreciate the added security of real-time flight tracking and accident alerts.
