Travel Trends

Below are te key takeaways from the last Chicago Travel and Adventure Show! What I enjoyed most was the last presentation from Samatha Brown, the host of Places to Love which airs on WTTW in Chicago on Saturdays.

Revenge Travel

  • Everyone has been pent-up since the pandemic and people are ready to travel again! No more putting off that dream trip. People are more than willing to revenge travel and spend more than before to make up for the lost travel opportunities.
  • Travel the way you way and travel the way you can afford it. No one will judge you. Go and see the places you love.

Travel Challenges

  • There are new challenges in travel and you’re going to feel it in more ways than one. Things will not be as smooth as they used to be. Ehhemm…remember the flight catastrophe at Southwest Airlines after a snowstorm when everything came to a screeching halt? You have to plan for the unplanned
  • Carry on when you can. If you’re not normally using a carry-on, it’s time to change the way you think and remove the unknown and the chance of being inconvenienced. Keep spare underclothing, a toothbrush, and important items at hand. This list of carry-on items should be considered when you pack. 
  • Use zipper compression luggage to help you utilize space more efficiently. And plan to wear tops and pants twice on your travels. You can mix and match clothes and double your travel wardrobe with this strategy.
  • Arrive at the airport early, it’s never too soon. It will help relieve the stress of getting through TSA and to the gate in a timely manner.  
  • Minimize flight connections and never book another flight that is less than 1.5 hours ahead. They are normally more economical, and you can save money, but you have to ask yourself if it’s worth the added stress when you are trying to start a vacation.
