Top 65 Travel Trends in September

From Immersive Bookstore Vacations to Hotelier Chain Apps

— September 30, 2015 — World
The top September 2015 travel trends include everything from helpful applications that streamline the travel process to one-of-a-kind, immersive vacation options available through services like Airbnb.

Backie is an innovative peer-to-peer scheme launched in the Netherlands that allows cyclists to rent out the seat on the back of their bike. This unique business model means that locals can find quick, reliable work instantly and provides an alternative mode of transportation for those without a bike of their own.

Additionally, the Marriott Hotel chain recently launched an app that promotes booking directly through the brand rather than through the host of travel websites that have turned up. The app is supported by a hilarious digital campaign from YouTube star Grace Helbig.

The top September 2015 travel trends will have you daydreaming about your next vacation.
