Luxury Travel Trends

Luxury travel trends will never go back to the way it was before, and the travel industry—through top travel advisors, hotels, cruise lines, and destinations—has the power to lead the way.
1. Reinventing Travel Agencies
 
Luxury travel agencies have gotten a facelift as of late. Travel is becoming more personalized, depending on a person’s particular needs. One of the hottest luxury trends is optimizing relaxation through spa’s, physiotherapy, and secluded/private destinations.
 
2. Private Jetting to your Destination
 
Flying first-class or commercial is a thing of the past. If you are not flying private, you aren’t traveling in style or luxury. Private jets can travel to remote, exotic destinations that you could not reach through a commercial flight. Luxury travel has become an experience, not just a trip. So make sure to optimize your experience by flying private in a Citation X or G-IV.
 
3. Cruises for Wealthy Millennials
 
Cruise companies are targeting 21-45 year-olds with luxury, sleek vessels. These exclusive party cruise ships book some of the hottest DJs in the world and feature adventurous excursions. People who go on cruises want to be with people their age who are into the same activities. Therefore this trend is becoming extremely popular.
 Preferred Hotels & Resorts summed up the feelings of many in Cannes—its brand promise is “Believe in Travel.” It’s easy to get caught up in worries of sustainability and overtourism, but the belief that travel positively impacts us as human beings is still powerful. I came away impressed by Six Senses, a brand built on the pillars of sustainability, and CEO Neil Jacobs’s commitment to innovation, down to providing nontoxic sunscreens as part of resort amenities. Jacobs noted that if everyone stopped traveling, the impact on communities around the world would be profound; it would create hardship for millions of people. It’s something to remember as we all strive to mitigate travel’s negative impacts.

These unlikely services are examples of how the sharing economy is transforming travel. (article written by Mark Stachiew of the Calgary Herald. Tap the button at the bottom of the page to see original article):

When it comes to hotels, Airbnb has become a major competitor as has Uber for taxis. but not only have those businesses spawned imitators like Vrbo and Lyft. but every facet of the travel industry is now being disrupted by the sharing economy.

To give you an idea of just how diverse the options are for today’s tech-savvy traveller, we’ve collected a wide selection of services below that offer modern alternatives to the ways we’ve always traditionally travelled.

Private jet

You don’t have to own your own private jet or be friends with a rock star in order to fly on one. Jetapp, PrivateFly, XO and Jettly are just a few of a multitude of services that connect travellers with private-jet owners. In order to travel from point A to point B with speed and comfort. Even Uber is getting in on this action with Uberjets. (UberJets is not affiliated with Uber). It’s the perfect solution if you are in a hurry or if you are travelling somewhere obscure that would normally take so many connections that you’ll spend days in transit. Private Charter News. 

Travel agents

The internet has turned a lot of people into their own travel agents. Giving them the ability to not only book their own flights, hotels, rental cars, but manage just about every facet of their voyage online. Still, there are many folks who would rather offload that work to a travel agent. With FareFetch, people can book their flights by enlisting a community of “farefetchers” who will track down the cheapest fares and collect a commission for doing so.
