Top 100 Travel Trends of 2014

From Mile High Accommodations to Naked Handstander Portraits

— January 11, 2015 — Autos
While service and hospitality have always been top priority for this particular industry, the top 2014 travel trends show that airlines, photographers, designers and more are looking to create lifetime experiences that go above and beyond the call of duty. As though taking a page from modern marketers, many of these trends have gone viral, creating an avalanche of word-of-mouth promotion few would soon forget.

From luxury air cabins and clever flight attendant uniforms to vehicles with built-in tents and surreal adventurer photography, the top 2014 travel trends nevertheless focus on the idea of experience in ways that surpass advertising ambitions. People are looking for once-in-a-lifetime experiences that they are proud to share not only with friends and family, but the world as a whole through social platforms such as Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

To see how other factors have impacted the 2014 travel trends, check out Trend Hunter's Travel Trend Report.
