Hit the Road
Taking to the skies might not be the most viable option after the lockdown. As the need for social distancing increases by the minute, travellers around the globe seem justifiably leery of flying. It would be wildly optimistic to assume that air travel would recover anytime soon after the pandemic, with health and hygiene marking a major shift in our priorities. Before the masses can get back to flying, the classic road trip will be resurrected. A far less scary prospect and a much cheaper alternative than a trip to a faraway obscure land. Added bonus: you get to steer clear of the hassles of planning and can avoid large crowds.
For those of us in the travel and tourism industry, the uncertainty of this pandemic has hit too close to home. every day we wake up to higher numbers, the world at a standstill and the travel industry at the crossroads. while experts believe that travel will bounce back soon enough, the potential reset of what travel means looms over our heads. Reinvention is imperative and some new trends are on the rise. Change, perhaps, will be a good thing after all. we at OT delve deeper into these patterns and what the future of travel looks like in the post-COVID-19 world.
