As the world slowly recovers from COVID-19, 2022 is set to be one of tourism’s most significant years to date. Surely, the pandemic profoundly transformed the industry, but with this came an exciting opportunity to adapt, innovate, and set the bases of the future of travel. 

As travelers consider trips in 2022, enriching tourism experiences are top of mind. Let’s have a look at the key travel trends and values that will shape the industry the following year.

Sustainability as a Driving Force

The modern tourist is environmentally conscious and puts sustainability above all else. The travel community will also increasingly expect transparency from travel entities on their sustainability initiatives. 

As international travelers become more aware of the climate crisis, the concern grows for reducing one’s footprint and enjoying holidays responsibly. The European Travel Commission recently published their handbook on Encouraging Sustainable Tourism Practices. Here are a few insights that reflect traveler values:

  • 70% of travelers expect the industry to offer more eco-friendly travel options
  • 46% of European travelers consider waste management to be the most important environmental issue 
  • 40% of European consumers would stop flying in order to help mitigate climate change

Travelers are expected to be more aware of environmental issues and to seek responsible travel policies. 

Safety and Security are a Must in Travel

The strength of a trusted brand provides confidence that essential health measures will be in place. Combined with pristine nature experiences, these elements add an extra layer of support to the traveler’s journey.
