Top 100 Travel Trends of 2015

From Stress-Reducing Luggage to Gourmet Airplane Menus

— December 30, 2015 — World
Comfort and convenience emerge as the top priorities among the top 2015 travel trends. With more consumers traveling domestically and internationally, there is an increasing demand for products and services that make travel easier for the average individual.

The top 2015 trends reveal that consumers are increasingly turning to high-tech devices as a way to ease the stress of traveling. This is evident in the way that consumers are booking their vacations, the way they are navigating airports and even the way in which they are keeping track of their luggage. Indeed, new technology has given consumers more precise tools when it comes to planning their next trip.

Airlines and hotels are also catering to the demand for stress-free travel in the form of innovative services. Whether it is offering a greater range of food options or simply providing more comfortable accommodations, travel-oriented brands are eager to make their services more accessible to a new generation of travelers.

To find out how travel trends are evolving, check out Trend Hunter's 2016 Trend Report.
