4 Important Travel Trends for 2021

Posted by mistyjhones on January 3rd, 2021

2020 was the year every traveler learned that the freedom to roam our local cities and the world could be taken away within a short period. Although many countries have opened their borders to travelers, there are Travel Trends that are likely to dominate 2021. These include;


1. Nomadic travel

2021 seems to be the year every employee or employer is reimagining the workplace. Even when coronavirus has passed, most employers will find it hard to lure their employees back to their offices, and perhaps they may not need to.

If all you need is Wi-Fi and enough time to get your work done, you can work from nearly anywhere. Just think about it Barbados was the first nation to strike on this opportunity with their digital nomad visa. This allows you to work from this paradise for a period of one year. Anguilla, Dubai, Bermuda, Georgia, and Estonia swiftly followed this trend.

With the COVID-19 pandemic causing travel restrictions, there is a clear desire for more exciting and longer holidays that compel travelers to take their work with them. That means you can travel to popular destinations such as Put-in-Bay and still be able to do your work, as long as you have access to the internet and other resources you need to handle your official tasks.

2. Touchless technology will inspire traveler confidence

Clear communication, transparency, and seamless onboarding and payments are the clear winners of 2021. The good news is that there is an app or a few for that.

In a recent survey, four in five travelers said that advancements in technology would increase their confidence to travel in 2021. For example, an app that could send trip notifications and alerts if there is a change in government policies regarding travel restrictions or a localized outbreak of coronavirus could be very helpful to travelers.

Additionally, other apps and business websites will make it easy for travelers to find the services they need. For example, they can find local taxes using an app or check local business websites to find golf cart rentals, hotels, and other services they need during the holidays.

3. Bleisure travel

Well, mixing travel and business is not a new concept to many people. However, it is becoming a permanent trend in the business and travel industry, with the number of bleisure travelers expected to increase in 2021.

Many organizations are choosing to mix business activities with pleasure, particularly when it comes to attending conferences and cross-country meetings. This allows their employees more time to explore the world while away. Some companies also allow their employees to welcome their spouses to such trips.

4. Better services for all

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, consumers racked up miles and points, which shaped the quality of service they experienced. However, things have changed. Most travelers are now favoring airports, hotels, and airlines that prioritize their safety. Suppose you plan to visit Put-in-Bay, which hotels would you prefer? My guess is that you will choose Put-in-Bay hotels that have implemented strict COVID-19 prevention policies.
