2022 Global Travel Markets Recovering Fast
Next year is shaping up to be a stellar year for travel, travel advisors say, and some believe it may even be a boom year.
“I think next year will be a good year as long as infection rates keep falling and vaccination numbers increase,” said Claire Schoeder, an independent contractor with Atlanta-based Elevations Travel.
Richard Turen, managing director of Churchill & Turen, believes there may be some residual pandemic-related fears that will affect first-quarter overseas business.
“We are, however, seeing a surprisingly strong recovery for travel during the second quarter and beyond,” he said. “We have returned to a ‘wait-list’ situation, and we can only accept new clients referred specifically by existing clients.”
He added, “We could not be happier with the rush of new business for the summer and fall of 2022. We actually find ourselves cautioning some travelers to ‘slow down’ a bit in terms of the number of trips they are planning.”
In particular, group businesses are thriving.
“We are seeing a demonstrable decline in the percentage of travelers who want FIT arrangements abroad,” Turen said. “More are opting for the company and friendship of like-minded travelers on top-quality escorted tours and cruises.”
