Tourism Industry on the way of Trends
  • July 2018

Every Industry possesses its own trends. Travel & Tourism Industry also maintain its special trends and it is always subject to transformations. Like the fashion Industry, a trend which has been hot for months could fade out and make comeback unexpectedly. Travel trend waves in the Industry weave new fabs along with our daily life in this digital era.

Nowadays  travellers have a growing desire to experience new and emerging destinations in a much more sustainable way  where they look for alternatives or ‘something different’ which results in the  term  Voluntourism  or  volunteer tourism  which  benefits the local community. VolunTourism allows the traveler   to contribute to the sustainable development of a destination and in turn get a chance to explore a new destination and culture.

‘Lone parent’ is another trend in global travel Industry. According to United Kingdom’s office national statistics, two million lone-parent families are in the UK today. One-parent families now make up 19.2% of Canadian households with children. By catching this quickly many Tour operators launched new programmes for single parents in 2018

The demand for cruise ship travel is projected to grow 4.5% from last year-and so is greener travel, according to the most recent Center for Responsible Travel report.  Intrepid Travel will launch 10 small ship cruise itineraries and Peregrine Adventures will add 20 small ship tours to its existing range in 2018

Any time in History people who are Health conscious mostly prefer their holidays to maintain their personal well being and no surprise. Many travel companies are introducing new offers in the area of wellness Tourism as a response to the growing demand of Health conscious travel.

Solo Travel is another trend in recent years and over the past five years there seems to be  an  increase  of  40%  in solo passengers in group trips.  Tour operators venture new off beat destinations like Sarawak Rainforest Music Festival in Borneo and India’s remote northeastern region since travelers are increasingly seeking  more  remote places to travel. As social media opens people's eyes to lesser-known destinations, travelers are increasingly seeking more remote places to travel like Ethiopia, Bhutan, Paraguay and Kazakhstan, whose tourist numbers are all growing.

‘BLEISURE’ TRAVEL is another sector and it’ is increasingly becoming a market in itself, with young professionals opting to spare their business travel with the chance to further explore the destination on  their  own.

Nowadays travelers are more interested to  be  occupied in activities and adventure travel.  It has  marked  its own status in the Industry. No matter what the purpose of the travel, it has become organized and focused on the travelers needs.
