1. Less popular destinations

According to Airbnb, the traveler's "dream destination" is changing. If in 2019, famous places are big cities such as Barcelona, ​​Lisbon, London, Los Angelas, Madrid, New York, Paris, Rome, Seoul, Toronto in the top 10 top destinations, then in 2020, visitors can tend to choose less popular, remote and deserted locations. The booking list of Airbnb travelers has less popular, empty locations such as Derbyshire (UK), Rodante (USA), Forks (USA) - the filming location of Twilight, Lake Muskoka (Canada).

2. More expensive

Rising airfares and room rates, limited access, and higher car rental prices have become an objective reality for travelers choosing to travel amid the pandemic. Many travelers think things will return to normal once restrictions are lifted, but transport businesses won't bounce back immediately by "normalizing fares". For accommodation businesses, before the pandemic, hotel prices increased by 2-3%/year, the period 2021-2022 is expected to increase by 11% or more.

3. More pragmatic

After the pandemic, trips will become more pragmatic, well-thought-out and carefully planned. Visitors will tend to weigh the pros and cons of specific directions, calculate the optimal options for logistics, accommodation... In 2020, travel company Uniglobe Travel Designers records a significant increase in the trend of early booking of flights and accommodation in the US. Analysts are sure that this trend will continue and become stronger in the near term: to save money, people will buy tickets and book accommodation as soon as possible.

4. Responsible, Safer

The insurance market is thriving during the pandemic and is likely to continue to grow in the coming years. Many countries used to recommend that travelers buy health insurance when visiting their territories, but now this provision has become almost mandatory, as self-finance in the case of Covid-19 has been required in many places. In addition, the rate of travel cancellation insurance (for example, last minute flight cancellation or change) is increasing. In addition, in hotel booking applications and websites, a new option has appeared on the selection of accommodation facilities that comply with the rules of control and safety, hygiene, disinfection of surfaces at the hotel.

5. More categorization

After the pandemic, the trend of choosing a trip will be more clearly differentiated by age. Older people have a higher death rate from Covid-19 so they tend to choose a different trip than younger people. According to a recent survey by Airbnb, Americans 50 and older want their next trip to be a family vacation experience (33%) or a trip to a familiar place (33%), while only 29 % of respondents in this age segment want to have a new experience or go to a new place for themselves.

6. Longer

According to Concur Travel, after 2020, many countries around the world tend to close periodically, "open and close again" due to Covid-19. Therefore, short trips and weekend trips are no longer in vogue. Before the pandemic situation, the plans for trips are often vague and impromptu, now they will calculate more carefully and choose to go longer if they decide to go.
