We have officially bid the 2016 holiday season farewell. And, all across the country, people are returning home from seeing friends and loved ones. With any luck, they are also looking ahead towards potential vacation time during the upcoming year. Of course, with a new year comes new trends and technology, and it is important to be aware of what is available. The LA Times recently took a look at what is in store for travel in 2017.
Lodging – A new type of lodging may be making its debut in the new year. Jo&Joe will offer lodging aimed at Millennials, where quarters can be configured based on individual needs.
Hotels – If you choose to go the traditional hotel route, the good news is that rates aren’t expected to increase very much (outside of California) in the upcoming year.
Air WiFi – Everyone wants to have access to WiFi, even from 35,000 feet in the air. Expect airlines to continue to switch towards better connectivity, allowing for more reliable and faster browsing.

However, after you return home from family to begin thinking about 2017, it is time to consider a more personal travel experience. After family time is done, it is time to focus on you, and a Detroit Free Press article may help. They recently discussed how travel trends in 2017 promise far-flung surprises.
Cruises – Although there are many new, sleek cruise ships on the way, you may want to reconsider trying to bring your furry friend along. Very few ships offer pet accommodations, and those that do cost a fortune.
Airfare – Some good news is in store for those who travel by plane, as the average economy fare is expected to drop 3% for 2017 domestic flights, and 1.5% for international flights.
Hotels – However, those looking to stay in hotels should expect to see rates go up. Next year’s rates are projected to be 4.6% higher in North America.

And, it is also a great time to look back at the trends that dominated the past year in the industry. ABC News recently wrote an article, discussing the winners and losers of 2016 travel.
Adventurers – Are you looking for a little adventure during your next trip? With Cuba now opened for travel, it is a great time to take advantage of some of the incredible deals available.
Europe – Speaking of great deals, there are a ton available for trips to Europe. Prices have already fallen to many European destinations, and it is expected that this will continue into the new year.
Outages – Did you see the computer outages experienced by United, British Airways, Delta, and Southwest? In one case, this led to the cancelation of over a thousand flights, and in others, thousands were delayed.
Cheap – The idea of cheap flights is something that just about everyone strives for. But, the new “basic economy” class will eliminate carry-ons for flights. Your normal sized carry-on will probably be checked like a suitcase.

If Thanksgiving is your sign that the holiday season has arrived, then welcome to the 2016 holiday season. Starting this week, people will be traveling home in droves to see their loved ones. So, that means that travel is about to get a lot more busy, whether by car or by plane. However, if you are going to combine the two, and think about getting someone a travel related gift, there are some worth re-considering. Forbes recently wrote an article, discussing travel gifts to avoid in 2016.
Luggage – Unless someone has told you about a very specific piece of luggage, it may be wise to avoid this area. Many people look for very specific things in their luggage choice, and it is unlikely that you will find exactly what they are searching for (without being directed).
Camera – You may be tempted to get that special someone an expensive camera, prior to their upcoming trip. However, they are usually heavy, expensive options, and can be hard for a beginner to use.
Headphones – Noise cancelling headphones can be very handy, but they can also fail spectacularly. If you want to go this route, you may want to get a nice brand, as you generally get what you pay for here.
With the right planning, you can find the perfect travel related gift for your relative’s upcoming vacation. However, some may end up getting returned, if you don’t go the right route.
