Today's travelers seek authentic and educational experiences and are more likely to invest time and money in learning about diverse cultures while helping to make a positive local impact. With this shift, hospitality brands are incorporating educational experiences into their packages to merge consumers desires for escapism and educational travel.
Social media has also made every consumer their own advocate, highlighting the need for accessible business models and designs across various industries. As a result, more and more brands are adapting to better accommodate people with disabilities while removing the barriers they may face while traveling.
The significant downside of the travel industry is its impact on the environment. As consumers become more environmentally conscious, businesses are now offering sustainable travel options. A notable example of this is eco air travel, with more businesses investing in carbon offsetting, sustainable materials, and fuels.
Despite unforeseen circumstances like the pandemic, the travel industry has proven to be resilient, by continuing to adapt to evolving consumer desires. As travel brands continue to adapt their business models, they must consider consumer values and preferences to create more authentic and sustainable travel experiences.
