Because there is only so much that photos or videos can convey, the future of travel may be more reliant on experiences in virtual reality.

Expedia currently developing virtual reality listings, which will make it possible for those with access to a VR headset at home to get a better sense of what a hotel room, or even a cruise ship, will look like when one embarks on a real-life excursion. The implementation of this kind of virtual reality technology for travel has the potential to change the way people go about making bookings, as they will be given a better sense of exactly the environment and features that they will be paying for.

In a recent demo, Expedia showed that viewers were also able to interact with their surroundings in virtual reality, such as opening sliding doors and stepping out onto a balcony.
