    NASA will start construction of its Lunar Space Station in 2019 (launching in 2022).
  3. MAKE USE OF IT
    And learn something new while traveling. Whether learning a new language, how to cook or a new skill Coming back from a learning experience holiday is a reward.
  4. THE UNMATERIALISTIC TRAVELER
    Almost two thirds of travellers (60 % according to booking.com) value experiences higher than material possessions. 2019 will see travellers going into a more authentic experience. From where you eat and sleep to how you shop, there will be more of a focus on comfort and happiness, than materialistic opportunities.
  5. SUSTAINABLE VOYAGE
    Travellers will look for sustainable experiences in their destination choices in 2019, while accommodation providers will look to reduce their plastic usage and increase their sustainable credentials, already when presenting themselves.
  6. INSTA TRAVEL
    The travel business is increasingly driven by the location’s Instagram-ability. Just hashtag your dream destination and you can edit your favourite pictures you want to visit. There is no better personalized travel guide that makes you choose your own favourite spots.
    Which means for Hoteliers that “Instagramability” is key when creating a dream destination.
  7. HEALTHY HOLIDAY
    Find a better life style while travelling is the goal of wellness vacation.
    From fitness-centric resorts and hotels with holistic spas to natural immersion getaways, these travel experiences are geared to leave you rejuvenated for a better well-being.
  8. B-LEISURE TRIPS
    Is a new trend which sees people mixing business with leisure more in 2019.
    That is due to digitalization and more uneasy traveling which is more time consuming due to increased security aspects. Makes sense to add some days of vacation at your business location or take some hours of your vacation day to do some home/ hotel office work.
  9. HOMEWARE HOTELS
    Homeware companies are opening their own hotels. What a great idea to let guests become clients after they saw, tried and felt the furniture and homeware they vacationed in. Muji will open this year in Ginza Tokyo and Soho House recently opened in Mumbai with 38 rooms; although the members’ club came first, the company’s spin-off Soho Home site now sells everything from bathrobes to cut crystal glassware.
  10. PRIVATE HOMES
    Vacation in an exclusive home, which you can only rent with your friends or alone (according to your budget) when you are becoming a member. Stay One Degree is the first Luxury travel Social Marketplace to get your dream home for your next holidays.
