Can we Travel in 2021?
Yes, we can travel in 2021. By the end of the year, it's hopeful that most travel restrictions for international travel will be lifted.
Right now, where and when you can travel will depend on where you're flying between, as well as whether you've had a vaccine and how far along the country you're visiting is with their vaccine rollout.
If you're from the US, you can visit the CDC's advice on both domestic and international travel.
What Will Revenge Travel Look Like After COVID?
Revenge travel will either go one of two ways after COVID.
1) A slow but steady return of travel bookings as different areas of the world list travel restrictions at different times
2) A massive influx and increase of travel worldwide as tourist hotspots re-open at a similar time worldwide
It might feel different depending on where in the world you live. For example, if you live in Europe and most of Europe opens up before the rest of the world, it may feel like revenge travel is in full-swing. When, in reality, most of the world will still be tied-down by restrictions.
Should I Revenge Travel?
If you love travel, then we don't need to tell you whether you should or shouldn't revenge travel. The chances are, you'd have already started making your vacation plans!
However, as exciting as the prospect of comeback trip is, there are still many travel bans across the world. We don't recommend travelling to anywhere that puts you at risk of contracting COVID-19 and you should always follow your local government rules and advice.
When Will Revenge Travel Start?
You could argue that revenge travel has already started! In some countries like the United States and Australia, travellers are satisfying their travel itch by taking domestic vacations to destinations within their own country where restrictions aren't in place.
In fact, reports have shown in the United States, short-term vacation rentals have increased by 24% when compared to 2019.
On top of that, trips to reunite with families have also increased by 17% when comparing the 21/22 peak holiday period with 19/20 peak holiday period.
