If you are going to be traveling in 2017, you need to ensure that you are traveling in style.  You want to make sure that you are traveling in the best way.  Like fashion, traveling all over the globe also requires that you know what is trending and how you want to travel.  Whether you are a young generation hipster traveling to new places, of a seasoned adventurer, it is critical for you to know what is trending so that you know what to expect. Here are some of the most famous 2017 trends.

Bleisure bloom

One of the most famous trends of 2017 is people mixing business with pleasure. More and more companies are including incentive trips for their employees as a benefits package.  Today, when a business meeting ends on a Friday, employees are allowed to extend their trip through the weekend for personal pleasure. In fact, some businesses allow their employees to take family members for a business trip. This way after a long day of work, the employee can relax and have some quality time with their lovers.  So employees are no longer taking business trips too seriously and only packing suits and official wear. They now include flip flop sandals and swimwear for those days when they will be extending their trips.

Local travel

Most millennial do not have the money to go on expensive vacation trips. Instead, they take pleasure in enjoying small changes in their environments and just having fun. To ensure that they do not miss out on adventure experiences, young people are traveling to places within their budgets. Some will take advantage of the fact that the dollar is stronger than most of the other currencies in the world. They will spend their time enjoying sceneries in third world countries. However, those who cannot afford international travels are spending their time getting to know their countries. Tourism costs for locals are always lower than it is for people from other parts of the world. Sometimes they create their tourism and camping experiences in their back yards.


Being your travel agent

These are tough economic times and any day money is saved is a great day. Technology has made it such that travel agents are slowly fading away. The only agents you will find in the market are well-trained agents who are experts in the niche. Most of the tourists today are using artificial intelligence software to learn and research the many different traveling options they have. Online bloggers are also very helpful in ensuring that travelers have all the information they need to choose a country to travel to. The use of smartphones also allows each traveler to have a curated and personalized experience within the message style interface.

Solo traveling experiences

Today, there are more gender independent traveling options than ever. Gender empowerment has made it such that there are women only booking and retreats. This increase is making it easier for women to go for retreats and to book travels for themselves as opposed to the past where they would book travels for the entire family. More people are looking for ways to better their own lives so that they can be better with the people in their lives. As such, enriching solo traveling experiences are necessary for most individuals.



With global warming now becoming more evident, travelers are now aware of their carbon foot print and are trying to be more sensitive especially when visiting remote areas. To create a more sustainable experience for themselves and their hosts, travelers will not practice sustainable traveling habits that are easy on the environment. Such effects are seen in the products they use, the way the disposed waste and the materials they use to make their tents. After booking a private aircraft charter, people are buying products that are environmentally friendly.


With these traveling tips, you can save more money in your travel and know that you can still find great places to go to even with a tight budget. It is also easier to find locations and know what to expect by using your phone to find out more about the parks and museums you will be visiting.
