Revenge Tourism: Everything you need to know about travel directions post-pandemic

With increased vaccination campaigns around the world, advances in certification of traveler vaccination status, and countries more willing to welcome tourists, there is now great hope that international travel will return.

As such, the term “Revenge Tourism” may become popular in the summer of 2021 and beyond. Essentially, the term means that after nearly a year in lockdown, travelers around the world are now planning longer, longer, and more expensive vacations in retaliation for the bleak and prolonged coronavirus quarantine.

However, this is what we think a post-COVID-19 revenge Tourism will look like.

How will travelers decide their destination?

While travelers are understandably eager to get back there, given the heightened awareness brought about by the pandemic, they inevitably consider the following:

  • Will the virus spread where they live?
  • Is the virus spreading where they want to go?

Even if travelers are vaccinated against the coronavirus before their flight. Most are likely to self-care a few weeks before departure. Destination countries may even require them to do so through social distancing and mask-wearing regulations.

Travelers will also consciously avoid destinations with high community transmission rates and places that put their health at the greatest risk.

The price will be low at first, but it won’t last long.

In response to the threat of the pandemic, airlines will continue to operate under low demand, meaning tickets will initially be offered at lower prices. To facilitate deals, flights and hotels also offer flexible cancellation and rescheduling policies.

However, as confidence in the global vaccination campaign grows and willingness to travel steadily rises, demand for air and hotel bookings will inevitably increase, and prices will follow.

As such, adventurous travelers may consider securing their flights and hotels until the end of spring 2021 to continue their round-the-world trips and take advantage of low prices and generous policies.

In the post-pandemic reality, people will continue to be aware of their health and safety. When it comes to travel, that means masks, hand sanitizer, antibacterial wipes, etc. are almost mandatory and will remain so for the foreseeable future.

Also, since revenge tourism means getting rid of the need to travel by traveling farther and farther, some travel accessories might make sense to make those long trips more bearable.

While most people have already saved a lot due to travel cancellations and restrictions, many will initially be cautious about spending as economies around the world rebuild. In response, expect your favorite e-commerce and coupon sites to offer deals on hygiene and travel-related items to encourage customers to join the revenge tourism frenzy.

Hygiene is the name of the game

Some would argue that hygiene and sanitation measures in place during a pandemic should always be the norm and that hotels and the hospitality industry have no choice but to comply.

When choosing between hotels and vacation rentals, such as furnished apartments, houses, or condos, there are pros and cons, and most travelers will initially gravitate toward reliable hotel brands.

Throughout the pandemic, the hospitality industry has taken note and stressed the importance of a framework to ensure hygiene and hygiene standards. In this sense, branded hotels have a clear competitive advantage over vacation rentals, as they have significantly enhanced safety and hygiene protocols since last year.

This is also a good thing because we know that coronaviruses are not the only pathogens.

Outdoors will be the trend

Staying home for nearly all of 2020 has left many travelers craving the great outdoors. Many may heed the call of the wilderness and plan an outdoor adventure this year. It’s also a good social distancing effort.
