From vacationing with parents to engaging in sports: the main trends in vacations in 2024 have been named
Vacations where tourists can learn the basics of a sport will be a real discovery in 2024.
This trend was predicted by Neilson Beach Clubs, an international outdoor company, after conducting a survey and analyzing its customers' vacation data from summer 2023 bookings, as reported by The Sun.
The report was published after a survey of 2000 British adults. As it turned out, 36 percent of respondents prefer to go on a vacation full of activity; they are not satisfied with just resting.
The company considered paddleboarding, fitness classes, and water skiing, as these are the sports that guests like the most. Wakeboarding, wakesurfing, and mountain biking were also considered.
Yoga, paddleboarding, and cycling are also among the most popular activities that people like to do during their vacations.
Additionally, seven out of 10 customers surveyed confirmed the trend of "repeat vacations," where vacationers book their next trip to the same destination.
"People are increasingly using their time away from work to not only recharge their batteries but also keep fit. We call it 'switching off by switching on.' For those who exercise regularly at home, the thought of going two weeks without maintaining their fitness can actually be quite stressful," said David Taylor, CEO of Neilson Beach Clubs.
Another popular trend is picklecore, which reflects the growing interest in the sport of pickleball, a combination of tennis, table tennis, and badminton played with short bats over a net and using a perforated plastic ball.
More than a third would like to play it during their travels, and 42 percent would like to learn a new sport while on vacation, with 72 percent thinking it would be fun.
Half believe it's important to learn new skills, and nine percent would do it because a celebrity tried it.
It also turned out that just over half (54 percent) would travel abroad with their parents in 2024, but only if they were willing to foot the bill.
According to OnePoll, the rest will travel with their families to make memories that will last a lifetime (57 percent) and to spend quality time with them (73 percent).
However, about two-thirds (65 percent) said it is important to them that any vacation destination has activities that match the passions of each generation if they are going on a family trip.
There is also a growing trend of "family e-biking," where vacationers from multiple generations are increasingly traveling by electric bicycle.
