Travelers are diligently choosing their destinations, with many opting for incredible trips within their own country. For instance, a family is embarking on an exciting adventure to Yellowstone and the Tetons, indulging in animal safaris, exhilarating hikes, luxurious glamping experiences, thrilling rafting excursions, and more. While room configurations haven't posed significant issues, there is a noticeable trend of people gravitating towards 2 and 3 bedroom suites. Additionally, they are even hiring private chefs to enhance their enjoyment within their chosen borders.
The more adventurous souls are eagerly securing bookings for European destinations in September, displaying an undeniable yearning to return to the charm of the old continent. Mexico, Jamaica, Costa Rica, Turks & Caicos, and the Bahamas also remain popular choices among travelers.
Meanwhile, budget-conscious individuals are seizing the opportunity to score remarkable prices on experiences that were previously out of reach. For example, they are now able to afford a Silversea Cruise, even if it means planning for 2022 or 2023.
Increasingly, more people are turning to experienced travel professionals like us, who devote their lives to this industry. These experts continuously train, expand their knowledge about various destinations, and stay updated with global developments, allowing them to adeptly navigate new rules, requirements, and ensure the operational status of restaurants, hotels, and tour operators—since not all have survived the impact of recent events.
Considering the current circumstances, my recommendation is to book international travel now and perhaps postpone local trips for the summer. This suggestion is particularly relevant for those eyeing the wild west, as everything is already sold out due to high demand.
