Top 45 Travel Trends in September

From Virtual AI Travel Assistants to Open-Roof Aluminum Campers

— September 30, 2018 — Lifestyle
Whether its time to book a last-minute holiday or plan vacations for next year, these September 2018 travel trends are bound to give you an idea of where to go or what assistance you can opt-in for.

Startup 30SecondsToFly develops an AI-powered platform entitled Claire. The application is meant to help small- to medium-sized businesses track expenses more efficiently. A more individual-targeting platform that will surely aid with travel preparations is TravelPirates — an online community with more than 10 million followers. The website provides consumers with timely information, deals, and allows them to book flights, hotels, and cars ahead of time.

For those who can't indulge in some time away, the September 2018 travel list also features an underwater 360 VR experience with Barceló Hotels that only requires an internet connection.
