Top 40 Travel Ideas in October

From Assistive Airport Robots to Travel-Focused Hoodies

— October 30, 2016 — World
From robots that help travelers carry out different tasks in the airport to specially designed hoodies that protect valuables, the October 2016 travel trends demonstrate a focus on both accessibility and safety.

In recent years, there has been a major push to make travel more accessible to consumers of all ages and abilities. For instance, London's Heathrow recently retrained its staff to help passengers suffering from dementia. Similarly, Hitachi's EMIEW customer service robot has been installed in Tokyo's Haneda airport to help those who may be in need of assistance.

Beyond accessibility, the October 2016 travel trends also reveal an ongoing focus on safety. More specifically, there is a trend towards protective garments that can be used to keep valuables safe from thieves. Such garments include the Koala Hoodie, which includes a passport-sized pocket and Modulor denim, which is designed for hiding essential items.
