As the years go by, just like in the world of fashion, trends come and go—and the travel industry is no exception!
Student travelers are certainly trend setters and often bring a fresh, new perspective to the table. Check out three of the student travel trends we’ve got on our radar for 2019.
- The number of students traveling—and realizing the value of doing so—is rising. The value of student travel is immense, and an increasing number of people are taking notice! According to Skift, 97 percent of student travelers said their trip improved their self-confidence, while 75 percent also said that student travel affected their career path. There’s never been a better time to plan a trip students will never forget!
- Students are exploring more new places than ever before. Generation Z has become known for being open-minded and forward thinking, so it should come as no surprise that they’re willing to explore more emerging destinations that might still be considered under the radar. The goal is still experiencing those authentic one-of-a-kind moments while being immersed in local culture.
- There’s a focus on sustainable and green travel. More and more students are making eco-friendly travel a high priority. Whether it’s requesting to visit a national park or taking a walking tour through a nature reserve to learn about the local flora and fauna, expect to see more emphasis on this, especially as we head into warmer weather.
