The New Normal: Post Covid travel trends

The New Normal: Post Covid travel trends.

The Covid pandemic continues to keep us guessing as to when life will settle down to a new normal. On a positive note, vaccination rates are increasing globally. This is encouraging some countries to open up to foreign travel and tourism. While the details of travel restrictions are still changing almost daily, some of the major travel publications are predicting several interesting post-Covid crisis travel trends – and what our holidays may look like in the (hopefully) not-so-distant future.

New travel trends include:

Revenge Travel

A new term coined by those who can’t wait to travel again in a big way.

“A huge increase in travel as it becomes safer and things open back up.  Many around the world had their vacations altered or outright canceled last year, so they are all looking to satisfy their travel itch at the same time. The term is also retribution against COVID-19 and how it is losing its power to control our lives, including canceling travel plans.” Huffington Post

 

Slow Travel

"The slow travel movement has come into its own during the pandemic, as many travelers contemplate the need for more thoughtful, sustainable forms of exploring. These more mindful trips involve visiting fewer places and sometimes transiting slower." New York Times

 

 

Isolation Vacation

"From private farmsteads to Indonesian island lodges, travellers are forgoing packed cities and beaches for peaceful private abodes. This season is all about the isolation vacation.  As the world slowly awakens from the slumber of the pandemic, travellers are seeking a new set of criteria when it comes to luxury vacations – the option to dine in private, explore vast expanses of nearby wilderness, without a soul in sight, and to lounge by the pool with without nearby strangers." Conde Nast Traveller Middle East

Other interesting new travel trend predictions include: 

 

Conde Nast Traveller

Tom Barber co-founder of Original Travel recently wrote a feature for Conde Nast Traveller about six travel trends that he predicts will be big post-lockdown.  His six tips are:

  • Industry expertise will be more valuable than ever – book via a trusted travel agent
  • Sustainable travel will become a key consideration
  • Travellers will want their holidays to have meaning
  • Visit destinations that rely on tourism 
  • Longer trips 
  • People will crave holidays that offer connections

 

South China Morning Post

The South China Morning Post talks of trends around:

  • Ethical wildlife tourism
  • Less mass, more mind – highlighting the Travellers’ aversion to
    mass tourism and cookie-cutter travel experiences
  • More sustainable, compassionate and mindful operating systems after the Covid-19 pandemic

 

Asia Tatler

The trends from this Asia Tatler article include:

  • Travellers will be “searching for sanctuary, privacy and a greater
    sense of calm and peacefulness
  • Off-the-beaten track and natural destinations 
  • Travel for health and wellbeing 
  • Overall travelling with a greater sense of intention and meaning

 

Forbes:

“In this post-Covid era, there are new trends emerging for how we will travel, with safety, privacy and seclusion all top of the ‘want list’.” Forbes

  • Luxurious remote resorts
  • Extended stays
  • Slow and sustainable
Practical safety and hygiene

Departures

“Ultimately, safety while traveling in the era of COVID-19 starts with sanitising

and face masks, and extends to thoroughly distanced or private experiences

whenever possible.” Departures
