Five Ways Hotel Travel Will Continue To Change

Travel has certainly changed in the last several months, but will it stay this way forever? Some people mistakenly believe travel has been ruined and will remain at low levels for years to come. We happen to be much more optimistic. We’re hoping we’ll see more vacations and working vacations now that more people can work remotely. So what does that mean for specific types of travel, like air travel and hotel travel?
The folks at Lonely Planet, one of the premier travel writing publications in the world, recently wrote that hotel travel is changing even as the world slowly opens back up and people begin to travel again. Here are a few of their predictions.
If you think about it, hotel travel may actually be safer. The hotel brands are taking extra steps to keep everyone safe, but fewer people are staying there, which means it’s already less risky. If you’re still worried about what the hotels are doing, as you’re making your reservations, visit the hotel’s website to read about their plans. Or call them up and ask them what kinds of steps they’re taking to keep their guests safe, and if they have any technologies such as keyless entry, contactless check-in, or even sanitizing robots.
