Food has always been the focus when we travel but this year travellers are actually getting more adventurous. They are more focussed on exploring local food and drink in their holiday destination. They are particularly interested in trying out new cuisines and unusual flavours. Therefore, this 2020 travel trend will see a rise in travelling to food markets, food festivals and culinary tours while on holiday.

3. Wellness Tourism

Being health conscious is the way forward. Therefore, travellers are looking to travel to destinations that are stress-free, help boost their mood and offer food with health benefits.

Going green is what is driving travellers in the year 2020. So, we can expect travellers choosing a travel agency that focuses its attention on the action taken to protect the environment. So, there will be a substantial increase in using the local brands, local hotels, local suppliers and more activities involving locals when it comes to travelling.

5. Combing Air & Train Travel

According to a recent travel trend report by KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, “sustainability is important and travellers are taking it into account when booking.” This is why travel agencies are joining forces wherever possible to offer rail tickets for shorter distances as an alternative to flying.

6. Destination Instagram

According to KLM, surveys show that half of Gen Z and millennials consider how ‘Instagrammable’ their destination will be when booking. How many “likes” will it generate? The guarantee of taking beautiful holiday snaps is a prerequisite for 25.8% of them. The photos have to be authentic and taken by them personally. 

7. Travel Inspiration comes from Social Media

Instagram is expected to keep growing as a significant source of travel inspiration. Travellers mainly look at posts from friends and family (65.3%) or click on hashtags to seek inspiration from strangers (45.9%). The role of influencers and celebrities as a source of holiday inspiration is declining more and more (14.5%). Also, more than 50% of travellers don’t trust photos of holiday destinations shared by influencers.
