We have read different interesting studies (for example studies conducted by Deloitte and Sojern) on the future of tourism. In this article we are going to share 5 main conclusions on what trips could be like after the coronavirus crisis.
The first trips will be domestic. This conclusion is a logic one, as different countries are in different stages of the coronavirus crisis. Tour & Kids will continue to show families in Spain what we love about the Region of Valencia, a great destination for families.
Travel by car
For their first domestic trips, families will probably choose their car as their preferred way of transport. Car travel will probably be seen as safer than traveling by plane or train, because on a plane or train it is almost imposible to keep social distancing. When traveling by car it is also easier to return home fast if necessary.
It seems that our first trips will be short trips or weekend getaways. The first trips will probably take place around summer, but other less optimistic studies think they might not happen until the end of the year.
Tourists will probably choose less crowded destinations for their first getaways. This means they might look for rural destinations with more open space.
A study conducted by Sojern shows that global flight searches and bookings continue to plateau (study conducted on the 20th of april). It's possible that international travel might not be possible until the end of 2020 or the beginning of 2021.
Hopefully we can travel again sooner rather than later and enjoy Spain and especially the Region of Valencia again. As the conclusions of the studies may vary over time, we'll keep an eye out for more news!
