Skyscanner reveals the future of travel

Skyscanner reveals the future of travel
By admin


Skyscanner has launched the final part of the Future of Travel 2024 Report in the lead up to World Space Week from October 4 to 10, predicting new worlds for holiday exploration in the future.

Skyscanner envisages the heights of Earth’s orbit and the depths of the oceans will become holiday destinations over the next decade, with space the final frontier for the intrepid traveller.

The third and final chapter of the report also highlights new destinations around the world expected to soar in popularity, as well as how travellers’ social media profiles will become tools for hoteliers to create more bespoke experiences based on individual needs.

Skyscanner’s Filip Filipov says that taking travel to space will be a groundbreaking milestone, however these technological advancements could also benefit commercial aviation.

“A regular traveller might see a London to Sydney flight in 2.5 hours, which will make travel even easier and faster than ever before, breaking time boundaries,” Filipov said.

Heading in the opposite direction, the world’s oceans are also becoming a site for exploration, with underwater hotel rooms already existing in destinations such as The Neptune and Poseidon suites at the Atlantis Hotel in Dubai.

Skyscanner predicts a growth in underwater resorts as the battle for space on land grows, with rooms boasting aquarium-style windows and working to establish this new experience for travellers.

Throughout the report, Skyscanner has also set the stage for various changes in the way we experience travel, with everything from interactive room walls and Vitamin C-infused showers to 3D printing of bathroom amenities expected.

The Skyscanner report is the result of in-depth research and a series of interviews with a team of 56-strong trend experts and futurologists, with the full report and all future predictions available to read on the Skyscanner website.
