Travel Trends for 2017

Can you believe we are now well into 2017? It’s true, and if you are like most people you are already feeling the need for a vacation! This is a sentiment felt in workplaces all over. Even though it’s early in the year, it is never too early to begin thinking about your next vacation. Who will you go with? Where will you go? Will you try somewhere new and exotic? Will you wait and go later in the year? Or do you need a winter getaway now?

Hopefully you experienced some exciting vacations in 2016, but 2017 may have even more to offer. Travelers have spoken up this year and it is clear there are some exciting vacation trends happening in 2017:

  1. Traveling with extended family. While it’s common to go on vacation with your immediate family, it seems this year that more travelers are opening up that invitation to include in-laws, cousins and other far-flung relatives. Travelers want to enjoy and embrace a vacation with the people who mean the most to them, spending time together.
  2. Exploring a unique location. Many vacationers are moving on from their routine vacation to something new and exciting. They’ve had enough trips to the same beach or the same amusement park. Travelers want to go on vacations that are unique and haven’t yet been done by their friends. Perhaps it’s a European country or a ski mountain in Colorado…2017 seems like a great time to explore!
  3. Reuniting with friends. As we are getting older and busier with our lives, we often grow away from some of our closest friends. Many people are hoping to change this through planning group vacations. How much fun would it be to grab some of your old friends that you are starting to feel separated from and go have a wonderful vacation in a great location?

Planning your 2017 vacation with these trends in mind could lead to your best vacation ever. There are definitely some planning considerations, however. Reuniting with old friends or traveling with your extended family means a larger-sized group that wants to stay together could be a challenge. You either need to shell out too much money for multiple rooms or decide to cram yourselves into one small room, neither an ideal situation.

Instead, consider a timeshare vacation. Timeshare offers much larger spaces that allow for group time together or individual space when you need some quiet time—even including a kitchen for a quick breakfast or a gourmet meal. And with over 5,400 timeshares across the United State and 121 other countries – you, your family and your friends can find that unique location you are craving. So look ahead now, speak with your fellow vacationers and plan your timeshare trip today!
