Top 45 Travel Trends in February

From Extravagant Safari Tours to Real-Time Translation Apps

— February 8, 2015 — World
Luxury and convenience are on the top of business and designer minds when it comes to February 2015 travel trends. Although not many people might be thinking of taking an expensive trip in the near future considering all of the spending that tends to occur during the holiday season, there is a focus on delivering once-in-a-lifetime experiences that might encourage people to pull out their wallets more readily.

On the flip side, the February 2015 travel trends touch on the desire for convenience, which is being addressed through a slew of mobile apps and clever websites. For instance, the Hopper app analyzes flight prices for the user and notifies them when the best time to book is. Whimsy, on the other hand, pulls the best exotic deals right away.
