2012 Travel Trends

People are thinking differently about their vacations in 2012. Here are some of the top trends we’ve noticed:

  1. Vacations sans gadgets. Some travelers are ready to pull the plug…would you be willing to hand your iPhone over to a life coach for a few days in 2012?
  2. London tourism. With the upcoming Summer Olympics, as well as the Queen’s diamond jubilee, London is definitely a hot spot on many travelers’ maps this year.
  3. Ghana, Chile, Norway, and Japan. Frommer’s has a few more exciting places in mind this year.
  4. More competition between travel sites. Google is now in the game with their flight search engine, so travelers have yet another way to try and track down the best price.
  5. More last minute travel. Hotels looking to boost occupancy + travelers looking for a deal = more last minute bookings. Keep your smartphones handy…sites like lastminute.com will be big players this year.
