From Covid-19 to an economic downturn, so much of our energy was spent just getting through each day.

Trends in travel and tourism, much like trends in other sectors, tend to come and go. Different destinations and experiences enjoy their moment in the sun before a new trend catches on. For 2020, however, we see more subtle changes in the way travellers are thinking, and it might just change how we travel forever...
Teresa Richardson 23 Jan 2020
