What Does The Future of Travel Look Like?
When browsing for a getaway, the obvious first port of call is to look for pool villas in Crete. The luxurious island and relaxing holiday at the end of it makes it a popular destination among sunseekers. We think that it’s unlikely that this is going to change anytime soon, but there are some modifications in the pipeline that may streamline your journey a bit!
With Back to the Future Day fast approaching – October 21st 2015 being the date that Doc and Marty McFly travel to in the second movie – we thought we’d take a look at what holidays of the future may look like.
On The Aeroplane
We don’t quite think that travelling in the future will involve teleportation (although it would make check-in a smoother process) but we do think that aeroplanes will be kitted out with a bit of technology that you’re not currently used to on your flight.
One of the biggies is WiFi as an onboard standard. We definitely see this as a possibility, meaning that you won’t have to flick through onboard magazines multiple times to keep yourself occupied.
There’s also been talk about using memory foam for plane seats in order to fit to a traveller’s exact body shape, as well as personalised climate control. Our personal far-fetched favourite is the advancement in technology that may offer panoramic views as you fly, offering passengers stunning views of Crete or Italy as they fly overhead.
It’s no secret that space travel for leisure has been on the cards for some time, but although concepts have been in motion for creating lunar hotels, we still think this is going to be extremely unlikely for typical holiday goers. Besides, you wouldn’t be able to show off your sun tan if you’re stuck inside a clunky space suit!
Furthermore, an underwater hotel in Fiji has been in the process of being built for some time. However, 14 years after it was supposed to open, with still no news about it being accessible, means that we don’t see this as a likely destination in the future.
Although it looks as though there are going to be some advancements that make getting to and from our holidays a little bit easier in the future, we don’t think that people will stop looking for places to visit on land. There are so many places left to be explored on earth that space won’t be the destination of every holiday!
