Revenge Travel Starts Now

We’re Ready to Travel Again
Since news of a widespread COVID-19 vaccine rollout began, the travel industry has heard rumblings of “revenge travel.” Again and again, people have had to cancel travel plans, rebook flights, push their vacations out, and all the while they’ve been told to “be patient.” But now, with the light at the end of the tunnel, all that is beginning to change. All of this sitting around and not traveling has just made us hungrier than ever for new destinations and new experiences, and now we’re going to get our revenge. The time of revenge travel has arrived.
What is Revenge Travel?
So, what exactly is revenge travel? With a massive amount of flight vouchers to redeem, time to plan, and an overwhelming desire to travel again, people are beginning to book their travel plans for 2021 and 2022 in droves, and take advantage of the ailing travel, tourism, and hospitality industries. There are incredible deals to be had on travel right now as hotels, airlines, and tour providers pull themselves out of a year-long slump. Don’t be shocked to see Black Friday-level sales deals for anything travel related. If you think you missed travel, you have no idea how much the travel industry has missed you.
First Stop: Your Own Backyard
The first wave looks to be domestic travel for Canadians. With travel restrictions still being in place, more and more Canadians are looking into their own backyard and realizing how incredible the travel possibilities are within Canadian borders. National Parks have always been a beautiful natural resource that draws travellers and nature lovers alike, but in the next year they’ll be more popular than ever. And there’s no end to the variety of landscapes you can explore right here in Canada, from east to west. Variety, beauty, and accessibility are all right there in Canada’s outdoor spaces.
After the initial wave of domestic travel, don’t be surprised to see your favourite international destinations start to open up as well. Europe is poised to welcome back travellers in droves as soon as a “vaccination passport” can be created.
But is it Safe?
Tour companies and travel destinations have now had time to iron out all the kinks in their travel plans, too. Masks, regular surface cleanings, social distancing, they’ve all been built into the regular day-to-day of travel seamlessly at this point. Travel can be safe now, and with the news of vaccines it’s only going to get safer.
Are you a Revenge Traveler?
Did you have to cancel your travel plans? Did you have to cancel them multiple times? Have you been adding a dozen different destinations to your bucket list every day? Have you left a suitcase packed because it’s too heartbreaking to unpack? When you drive your car, do you sometimes think you might just keep driving until you get somewhere new? Do you have vacation time stacked up, travel vouchers in your inbox, and restless legs? If you said yes to one or all of these questions, guess what? You’re ready for revenge travel.
