With the springtime just around the corner, now is a great time to start thinking about summer travel plans if you haven’t planned them already! Just like any time of the year, there are new developments and changes that will shape the travel industry for a few months at a time and this summer is no different. You might have all of your trips planned out already, but you’ll definitely still notice many of these trends in action over the summer months. Here are just a few of the next summer 2017 travel trends!
Where you once had to post several images from your trip and hope your best one beats out Instagram’s non-chronological algorithm, now you can combine a bunch of your favourite vacation images into one post. Recently, Instagram has rolled out an update that allows you to add up to 10 images per post of all your favourite beachside, mountaintop or cityscape snapshots. Another suggestion? Take one amazing panoramic shot and share it between the slides!
Music To Go
While making a roadtrip mix is nowhere near a new concept, apps that bring you fresh new music to go along with your travels is something you just can’t beat. Apps like Apple music will always curate collections you’re likely to love based on your chosen tastes, while apps like Noon Pacific gives you a brand new playlist every Monday at 12PM so you’ll always have the latest and greatest for your next trip.
Water On Water Pools
They say you shouldn’t mix business with pleasure, but travellers in 2017 have definitely missed that memo! Now, going on a “work trip” can also encompass a little bit of R&R and exploration as well. Too often have people passed through cities without seeing any of the sights because they were stuck in board meetings all day. Now, many companies are turning business trips into incentives; allowing employees to bring family or friends and even extend trips so they can get a little but more familiar with the local culture.
