As we stand on the brink of a new - and hopefully much brighter - year, many have asked us what we as travel advisors think traveling in 2021 will look like. Well, if 2020 has taught us anything at all, it is that nothing can really be predicted. However, as we have been monitoring the world closely over the past year, we have been experiencing a movement that will undeniably change the way we travel and how we feel about traveling too. Over the next couple of years cities are likely to be more quiet and with less pollution, popular sights will be less crowded and traveling – whether it is a quick weekend trip to your neighbor country or traveling cross borders to meet new cultures - will no longer be taken for granted.
Looking into the crystal ball of traveling, we expect that the way of traveling will mirror the behavior we’ve seen in 2020. People will most likely take more precautions and follow the recommendations for social distancing even while traveling, meaning that travel patterns will be affected by these choices, creating opportunities to go to new places, travel slower, stay longer and experience the outdoor to a much wider extent than previously.
