Many people include travel as part of their New Year’s resolutions. It makes sense; travel enables you to explore and discover new things. You learn about the world and, in many cases, yourself. To help inspire your travels in 2024, we have compiled some of the year’s top travel trends.

These are more than simply fashionable tourist destinations. With new, economical options for travel and some goals that may unfortunately disappear, these travel trends might be the final push you need to pack that suitcase!

Eco-Tourism

Travellers are increasingly embracing the natural in our digitized world. For many travellers, the perfect vacation is the chance to unplug and enjoy nature in all its glory. This is true whether it be the beauty of the Arctic, the majesty of an old forest, or a crystal-clear mountain lake. In cases like Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, nature lovers are looking to see the iconic destination in person before it succumbs to the ravages of climate change. “Last-chance tourism” is one of 2024’s more prominent travel trends, and it appears like it may be around for a while.

The Working Holiday

A digital world is a more connected world. This is a boon for travellers who want to balance work and leisure. “Bleisure,” the extension of a business trip for leisure purposes, was one of 2023’s most popular travel trends. The 2024 update flips the idea: travellers on vacation picking up their laptops. This is not a family vacation ruined by overworking parents; the working holiday means the family can travel somewhere for an extended period. This means the family can enjoy the perks of a more extended holiday without worrying about work commitments.
For those with flexible telecommuting options, the working holiday means they can take longer trips with the family and enjoy the lifestyle in another part of the world. This may mean renting a chalet in Canada’s Mont Tremblant or a chic flat in London. With a home away from home, you can complete your workday and then return to vacation mode.

Travel trends in 2024

Become Part of the Celebration

Integrating into local cultures and lifestyles has been one of the more persistent travel trends of the last few years, continuing into 2024. Those looking for an authentic experience in a new country are moving away from hotels, resorts, and “tourist traps” and are renting apartments, visiting farmer’s markets, and trying to get closer to living like locals.

An excellent place to try this out in 2024 is Chile. This South American country was listed as part of Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2024 for several reasons. Chile has a vast array of geographical aspects in a relatively small area. There is the desert in the North, the wild of Patagonia in the South, the Pacific Ocean to the West, and the Andes to the East. In 2024, Chileans will be celebrating 200 years of independence. Why not rent an apartment in the trendy capital of Santiago and join the party?

Leave Your Comfort Zone

Leaving your comfort zone is one of the biggest travel trends of 2024. That sometimes means travelling somewhere you may not have considered visiting, even a few years ago. Detroit is one of those cities. This city has bounced back from its 2013 bankruptcy and has been injected with new life. It made Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel list for 2024, which describes Detroit as “caffeine-buzzed” and “freewheeling in ideas.”

Leaving your comfort zone could also mean trying something completely new. This may be the year you try a fun activity like skydiving or swimming with sharks. You may finally accept your dream job in a completely new city. Whatever your personal travel adventure is, embrace it.

Seize the moment and make the most of this year with a home away from home.
