Fresh Travel Trends

The main trend of the season is a personalized approach towards vacationing. Say ‘no’ to tried and tested ways of travelling and discover something new with these four tips.

Genealogy trips. Keen on your ancestors are where they’d been during their lifetime? Try genealogy (or DNA) travel to “locate” the origins of your family. Book a tour led by a genealogy expert and based on the DNA test results. Such tours can also cover visits to specific locales (places connected with your ancestry) for an additional price. An exciting way to experience the towns and villages where your ancestors lived and understand family history in a better, deeper way.

Pop-cultural trips. Today’s entertainment industry offers an enhanced experience for fans via amusement parks, tours of filming locations and so on. If you’re a Star Wars fan, be sure to visit Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland (Anaheim, California). It offers a lot for kids and grown-ups, from meeting characters like Rey, Chewbacca, Kylo Ren (and a bunch of stormtroopers, of course) to riding the Millennium Falcon.

Sustainable cruises. The cruise industry of today is becoming more sensitive to environmental issues. Eco-friendly ships designed to better fit the local ecosystem; reduced consumption of fuel; anchorless positioning, which protects the sea floor; and so on. Travel green with these advanced new options and be conscious about environmental issues.

Fresh stopovers. The idea isn’t new, but the number of airlines that offer it has grown. Check the online ratings of free stopover providers and book your exciting flight with perks. There are also new programs which include hotels, rail passes, free sightseeing, etc., that free you from the burden of too much planning.
