You Can Expect to See the Following Travel Trends this Year

When the pandemic started, travel came to a standstill. To be specific, flights were canceled and a lot of hotels and resorts closed. Aside from that, travel regulations were changed on a regular basis. Now that so many have been vaccinated, the travel industry is opening up again (albeit slowly and with some hiccups). A lot of people are excited to pack their bags and visit tourists spots locally and internationally as we start our journeys into the year 2022. In fact, you can expect to see these travel trends this year.

1. Care for the Community

‘Care for the community’ was the center of attention during the pandemic. While everyone was in isolation, a lot of people checked in on their neighborhood to ensure that everyone had food and was feeling okay. Of course, we shouldn’t want to let go of this care and compassion. It made us better people, after all. For this reason, a lot of travelers agree that their trips should benefit the local community they are visiting. Additionally, a high percentage of travelers also want to know that the money they spend traveling goes to the local community. So, volunteer trips, trips where you can give back, and a focus on local hot spots will all be trending in 2022 as part of caring for local communities. If you need advice on how to have your trip benefit the local community, speak with the tourism board for the city you will be visiting.

2. Vitamin Vacay


After a long time of limited travel, we realized how much we needed it. In fact, most people didn’t realize the importance of travel to their well-being until traveling was not an option anymore. Now, most people believe that traveling has a great impact on emotional and mental health. For this reason, travel will be a typical form of self-care in 2022. In fact, vitamin vacay is one of the popular travel trends this year. As such, you can expect people to go to spa retreats and fitness holidays this year.

3. Spontaneous Travel

A lot of travelers have been fearing to make last-minute trips abroad because of the continuous changes in travel regulations. Even so, travel experts believe that spontaneous travel might return in 2022. To be specific, experts predict that a lot of people will continue to travel domestically this year using cars and RVs. Since planning a trip has become more of a hassle with continued cancellations, choosing to just jump on a travel opportunity that arises immediately with last-minute, spontaneous planning is also becoming a reoccurring travel trend.

4. Workations


During the pandemic, a lot of people shifted to remote work. Because of these work changes, traveling is not only limited to digital nomads. To be specific, workations also became popular. In fact, a lot of people said that they were able to work anywhere. So, why not travel around and work from your hotel room? Aside from that, more and more people are planning to combine work with travel.

5. Once-In-A-Lifetime Vacations

Finally, the last on this list of travel trends this year is taking once-in-a-lifetime vacations. As you know, most of us have stayed indoors for a long time. Now that the travel industry is opening again, a lot of people want to travel hard, like visiting the place they’ve always wanted to visit. Years ago, people would tell me the vacations I took were “dream vacations”, as in they were something people dreamed about but never really scheduled and went for. Now, after having travel taken away, you can bet people will stop dreaming and actually start booking their “dream vacations.”
