These Emerging Trends Will Change Your Travel Experience In 2020
Traveling to space, hotel rooms that you can set up from a smartphone, and getting through the airport faster are all emerging trends that travelers are interested in.
Travel company Luxury Escapes analyzed data from more than 20,000 voters in Australia for its “Travel 2020: Forecasting The New Decade of Travel” report and here are some of the most anticipated trends that could change travel as we know it.
Smart Hotel Rooms
Rooms that enhances the experiences for guests ranked No. 1 among voters as what they’d like to see more of, according to the report.
More hotels are investing in smart technology that will allow guests to open doors, dim the lights, and playing specific songs with a smartphone.
Facial Recognition Technology
Next on the list is an increase in facial recognition technology. Why? Because passengers are looking for faster ways to get to their terminals, according to the report.
More travelers are adopting environmentally friendly standards and choosing airlines who committed to taking care of the environment.
Unless your goal is to unplug, forgetting to pack your phone or laptop chargers is annoying. That’s why voters said they are looking forward to luggage that incorporates modern technology like battery packs and GPS locators.
Jet Lag Pills and Cures
Traveling is exciting but the worst part is the jet lag that follows. Passengers said they are looking forward to a jet-lag cure.
Just to be clear, this is not happening in 2020. The Luxury Escapes report, however, revealed that 1 in 5 voters said they are down for an orbit trip. They might be on to something as Elon Musk’s SpaceX is planning its first cargo mission to Mars in 2022.
