Industry experts are always trying to predict the up-and-coming trends in travel, but what trends can you expect to say goodbye to in 2024?
According to many such travel experts, pandemic-related travel trends are slowly fading from view. A lot of the stricter safety measures are being replaced with “business as usual,” though some brands revamped how they approach cleanliness and service.
For example, you may have noticed, after the pandemic, many hotels ceased daily housekeeping. This trend is one Matt Kiedrowski of Sable at Navy Pier predicts will go away in 2024, with more hotels reintroducing that service.
According to Kelly Kroyer, senior marketing manager, InterContinental Chicago Mag Mile, revenge travel related to the pandemic — or, travelers taking more and more luxurious trips in an effort to make up for travel time and experiences lost during lockdown — is also going away, due to rising travel costs.
And those rising travel costs? Some think they’ll continue rising, which means the “bounce back” to travel will slow, with fewer travel options remaining feasible for avid travelers. Some, like Kiedrowski, even expect business travel will outpace leisure travel in the coming year.
