Get to know the direction the trends are taking and you’ll know what to bring with you.
The tourism industry is taking some incredible directions this year and knowing them will help you choose the best travel accessories to bring with you.
What are this year’s trends and what travel gear do you need to keep up?
Tourism trends aren’t always obvious to define. Certain hot destinations may be simple to identify, but broader trends can be more difficult to spot. Beginning by choosing the best travel accessories based on where you’re going can be a good idea. However, the more you can learn about where things are headed, not just where you’re going, the better you’ll pack!
The top trends and best travel accessories for 2018.
- Mobile bookings will be the new automatic – Bookings are already mainly made online. This year, they will be made more by smartphone than desktop. If you’re planning to travel, the odds are that this will be the case for you, too. Whether you book a flight, a train, bus, hotel room, theater tickets or even a table at a great restaurant, some – if not all – your reservations will be done by phone. For that reason, you’ll need to make sure you have your phone and a portable phone charger with you so you can make plans whenever they need to be made.
- Experiences are the heart of the trip – Whether you’re going away to taste wines, try some extreme sports or do something else for some once in a lifetime memories, you’ll need to be properly equipped. This may mean the perfect daypack to bring everything with you. Stackable snack containers to give you the chance to have something to eat even when you can’t grab a meal (especially important if you’re doing something active or tasting wine…without the bucket).
- Traveling solo – People are traveling alone more than ever. This year will be record breaking for solo travelers. This doesn’t mean they’re on singles vacations looking to meet someone new. These are individuals who want to take a vacation and just happen to be doing so on their own. They will benefit from the best travel accessories for solo travelers, including: great travel apps, awesome foldable headphones, a money belt and an ugly cheap phone case that makes it look like your smartphone isn’t nearly as great as it is.
