Travel Trends for Accommodation for 2021/2022
Villas or apartments
Due to Covid-19, the demand for self-catering accommodation in villas, apartments, condos will increase rather than a hotel or Guest House.
Fully equipped kitchens
Many travelers opt to order in or cook rather then visiting restaurants and therefore well-equipped kitchens will be essential. All the properties we manage in Camps Bay offers fully equipped kitchens with all the necessary appliances etc.
Local travel is obviously very popular at the moment and will probably stay that way for many travellers for the next year. Visitors to Camps Bay are spoilt for choice with many tourist attractions (blog) close by. Holidaymakers are worried to get stuck in lock-down in foreign countries or that they will not be able to get flights back.
As the vacationers are travelling locally they would like to bring their furry friends along – the demand for pet friendly accommodation will rise.
Accommodation establishments have increased their social media presence and using influencers to show off their properties. During lockdown tiktok became very popular and people have been spending more time on social media lately.
Health and hygiene
Many holidaymakers check out the health and hygiene policies of vacation homes before booking.
Travellers are more rate conscious. As they now have less disposable income or that they wish to stay longer. Check out our monthly rates.
Tourists check the cancellation policies , require refundable policies and flexibility on date changes.
Virtual reality (VR)
Travelers would feel more comfortable about travelling to unfamiliar places if they could view it prior on virtual reality (VR).
Technology will play an even bigger role in booking procedures and travel.
Looking forward to travelling
After spending months locked-down many people can’t wait to travel and would like to make up for the time spent cooped up at home and missed celebrations of important birthdays, wedding anniversaries or honeymoons.
Work from the holiday destination
People are looking to book for longer and work from their holiday destination. Therefore the wifi speed, office facilities etc will be an important factor when booking. At Camps Bay Apartments we offer fast fibre wifi and the choice to upgrade the wifi at an additional cost.
Covid-19 has taught me to appreciate the simple pleasures in life eg hiking, swimming in the ocean and being in nature. Cape Town can offer all this and much more.
