Tripadvisor always did a great job using their data to predict the latest travel trends, and they did it once again. Their new research revealed how people are planning to travel in the year that’s ahead of us, and these five trends are leading the way.

The Second Half

Nearly half of the global travelers are planning to travel internationally this year, but most of them still haven’t booked their trips because they’re planning them for the second half of 2021.

Vaccine Roll-Out

Tripadvisor predicts that vaccinations will impact people’s confidence to travel, with more than three-quarters of travelers saying they’ll be more likely to travel abroad if they receive a vaccine.

Domestic Travel

International tourism will be on the rise in 2021 when compared to the last year, but domestic vacations are still going strong with three-quarters of travelers planning to embark on one.

The Joy of Planning

The majority of travelers say they will spend more time choosing their travel destination this year, probably due to the lack of travel last year that made them appreciate it more.

Dining Out

Travelers are looking forward to dining out again and discovering the cuisine of foreign countries, but takeout meals aren’t going anywhere, with a quarter of respondents planning to order them.
