Travel Trends for 2021

More than ever, people want to travel in 2021. A whopping 81% of our Travelsphere customers who partook in our recent survey said they wanted to take the same amount of holiday, if not even more next year than in previous years. From increased interest in exploring great wide open spaces & places of natural beauty, to actively looking for destinations in order to support local communities hardest hit by the closed borders, here are a few of our predicted trends for 2021. 

1. Wide Open Spaces

Many of us have had the time to return to nature over the last 12 months and this slower pace and taking the opportunity to get off the beaten track is bound to feature in many travel plans for 2021.. We see craving the space, nature and the great outdoors epitomized by destinations such as Canada as a big trend next year.

2. Island Destinations

Smaller destinations are bound to be popular in a post pandemic world and we offer tours to some of the most captivating. How about escaping to Italy’s magical islands for unrivalled dramatic scenery, Malta for it's rich history and heritage or sailing the picturesque islands of Croatia?

3. Changing Lives through Travel

Our Travelsphere Cares programmes support local projects and social enterprises by helping them earn an income from tourism. We simply donate a portion of the funds from our tours, so it’s great to know that when you travel with us you are helping to change lives and turn travel into real impact.

4. Bucket List Trips

Always fancied visiting New Zealand but never quite got round to it? Well 2021 is the year to tick some bucket list destinations off your list! Many of our customers will be looking to make up for lost time next year and booking their trip of a lifetime.

5. Experience more

In 2021 many travellers will be looking to venture out and experience more of their chosen destination. Whether that is taking a cookery class to learn how to make local delicacies, visiting an authentic blues club in the USA, exploring sites of times gone by or perhaps going in search of the elusive Bengal Tiger. Travellers will be taking their time to make sure they get the most out of every destination.

6. Short Haul Breaks

It’s just a hop, skip and a jump (or perhaps just a short flight) to many mainland Europe destinations which means you to maximise your time away. Venture to incredible Italy, seductive Spain or captivating Croatia and you’ll enjoy incredible itineraries that make the most of each country.

7. Leisurely Touring Holidays

While some intrepid travellers will be eager to see as much of the world as possible, many will also enjoy a more leisurely pace by staying in one or two hotels and exploring locally. The Little trains of the Pyrenees, the Italian Riviera, the spectacular Austrian lakes and the Azores, are just a few examples of the incredible destinations that allow you explore local towns, wide open spaces and enjoy amazing experiences.
