5 Things That Are Changing for Luxury Travel

By Iris Alvarado

Nobody could really predict how 2020 will be the year for a global pandemic, affecting millions of travelers around the world. Many of us were not ready for closing borders, canceling reservations, flights, and vacations.
How will the travel industry meet travelers’ expectations in terms of luxury? Here are a few changes to keep us all safe.

1. Hygiene & sanitization will be a priority.

Now, hotels, flights, and cruises are always more concerned and aware of the different practices to keep spaces clean and sanitized. For example, Accor hotels are launching a clean and sanitize program to implement new practices to prevent the spread of the virus. Are they still keeping the high ending luxury standards? That’s something that we need to find out, learn more …

 

2. Mindful destinations.

After the pandemic, many travelers are going to be changing their preferences for destinations. Maybe some of them will prefer to spend their vacation in an iconic 5-star resort to have the time of their life to share with the loved ones. It could be a good reason to invest more and seek places that you have to wish to visit and enjoy!

3. Least crowded destinations.

It is a nice sunny day by the beach; the kids are playing, and you are just enjoying the view. It seems like families and couples are looking more for private and less crowded spots to enjoy their time.

A few suggestions for your vacations to secure an umbrella are Virgin Islands (U.S and B.S) Turks& Caicos and many others, learn more

4. Cost v/s investment

While some people will be willing to pay extra on the next trip for safety and privacy, some will be stuck on their budget. Perhaps, paying the extra cancellation fees for your flight will be worth it at the end. Travel experts are foreseen that some travelers’ behaviour is unpredictable, mostly depending on the income and loss during the pandemic that will affect their choices in the future.

5. Vacay switching to staycation?

Due to the pandemic, many countries are putting in place restrictions and banning tourists from traveling. These will force some people to look for options inside to their own countries, provinces, and cities for getaways, but what the experts are saying right now? Amir Eylon, president and CEO of Longwoods International, a tourism market research consultancy, told CNN Business. “What you’re first going to see is day trips, [people] going wherever [they] can get to in a couple of hours and coming back home that day.” Read the full article here…

From now on, I believe we are going to take precautions and be wiser in investing on holidays and vacations to make the most to keep enjoying our time with our loved ones. The concept of luxury will have an effect and impact on our life experiences, just make sure you bring the best memories for the times to come.

  1. Hello! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a
    quick shout out and say I truly enjoy reading through
    your posts. Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that cover the same subjects?

    Thanks for your time!

  2. First of all I want to say great blog! I
    had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to
    writing. I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my
    thoughts out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
    Kudos!

    1. Hello Eliana,

      Thank you for your comments. Well, I usually think about the topic and put myself in a situation where I am telling a story to a friend. We do not write the same way we speak but sometimes helps to warm up. If it’s a travelling blog mostly, I tried to remember how I felt at that moment, emotions, feelings, mood, etc. I hope it works for you too.
