Our marketing manager Kathryn joined Travel Bureau partner Kuoni in London this week for the launch of their 2020 Worldwide Travel Report. She found out all about what’s trending this year and here are the highlights!
The Maldives is Kuoni’s no. 1 destination for yet another year, with Mauritius and Thailand filling out the top three. Following hot on their heels are Sri Lanka, Bali, Italy and the USA – and what do all thes eplaces have in common? They’re all featured in our Top Destinations, as chosen by our very own experts – the universe wasn’t playing around when it brought Travel Bureau and Kuoni together, we’re definitely partners for a reason! Vietnam, Antigua and South Africa are the final trio in Kuoni’s top ten and you’d better believe our fantastic team of personal travel experts have got years of great experience in these countries as well.
Another characteristic Travel Bureau has in common with Kuoni is that we’re always excited about exploring a new destination or learning more about one of our favourite places. That’s why we love seeing which lesser-known holiday spots Kuoni has pegged as ones to watch for the next year. Kuoni predict that more people will be using their valuable travel time to explore the ancient wonders and dramatic desert beauty of Jordan, or booking tours as a great way to get to know the fascinating culture of South Korea this year.
For anyone planning a family holiday in 2020, Kuoni’s research shows that villa life is the way to go. A villa is a great way to get that home away from home feeling on holiday and is an especially great choice for those who value their personal space and privacy. What’s more, with villas of all sizes available in every location, it’s a great option if you want to take the whole gang away – invite grandma and grandad and you’ll always have a babysitter on hand!
It’s hard not to be aware of increasing concerns over climate change and increasingly many people are trying to become more eco-conscious travellers, whether by cutting carbon or reducing plastic waste. Kuoni has some top tips, which we’ll be sharing with you soon and you can ask our experts about eco-friendly hotels and destinations.
Stay tuned for more on this year’s hot honeymoon trends coming soon! In the mean time, take a look at our favourite honeymoon destinations (SPOILER: We think Kuoni might have been copying our homework!).
If you’re thinking about a holiday to any of these places, we’d love to chat to you about your plans! Give us a call on 0191 285 9321 or make an appointment to visit us in store.
