2010 Luxury Travel Trends

With the current economic times, it’s easy for anyone to say that luxury travel is definitely out of the picture. However, according to this blog entry by Paradizo, luxury travel may not be all that bad after all.  Travel professionals have commented about how it’s not about where you go, but the new exotic experiences and travel bargains that you’ll get for these unique, once in a lifetime opportunities.

Enriching one’s life through travel is an essential aspect of all of our lives. According to Debbie Stock of VacationTravelChannel, “more enriching experiences are preferred over a luxurious lifestyle.” Luxury travel is acquiring a new trend in 2010, and taking the exotic, exciting, and adventurous route rather than the extravagant and high-end route.

As a result, travel won’t be centralized around the Caribbean or other places that have emerged as luxurious hot spots. Luxury travelers will find themselves creating travel itineraries for more unique and eco-friendly locations such as Panama and the Galapagos Islands of Ecuador. The Mediterranean as well as Dubai, China, and South Africa will also emerge as exotic locations to visit in travel

From the current economy and the development of luxury travel trends for 2010, it’s safe to say that it is no longer about how much you spend on traveling and what branded place you go to; rather, it’s about what unique and life-changing experiences you will gain from your travel adventures.
