If 2020 is the lost year for travel, will 2021 be the year of recovery? And if it is, what does that mean for you?
“I want to travel as much as I can,” says Gregg Jaden, a photographer based in Manhattan Beach Calif. “I will be spending more time in Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand to make up for lost time.”
Travel agents see the same level of enthusiasm.
“We see a full recovery in the first quarter of 2021,” says James Ferrara, president of Intele Travel, a travel agency. “We measure actual future bookings, which have been very strong.”
Many signs point to a quick rebound for travel in 2021. That’s because people will be making up for missed travel in 2020 and trying to use their travel vouchers, which expire soon. Travellers will have to time their trips carefully.
