The Monsoon is over, the temperatures are back to “bearable”… and the wedding season will start soon again.
A new batch of honeymooners will soon be looking for their once-in-a-lifetime destination to enjoy their new married life.
Travel agents, Gear Up!
What are the trends for 2019 ?
The first keypoint to remember is PERSONALIZATION. It is clear – the clients want to feel unique with a tailor-made package adapted to their profile and budget.
Wishing to get the best deal, the clients will tend to SELF-SERVE: direct booking or online researches will give them the information that they need within a minute.
The DIGITAL world is indeed a precious source of information for the new generation, who feels more comfortable behind a computer/mobile screen than in front of a travel agent.
When it comes to the destinations, Islands are still on the top: Maldives, Seychelles, Bali, Fiji are the favorite. But the interest is given to off-beats destinations: Cambodia, Philippines, Eastern-Europe (Hungary, Croatia, Bulgary).
If the newly-weds are of course looking for private time together after all the wedding rush, they also want to EXPERIENCE the destination: activities, sport, thrills… They want to combine luxury with adventure, a cocktail near the swimming pool after a bungee jump.
