This year has finally seen a true resurgence in travel as more countries around the world drop all COVID-related travel restrictions. While most of the world was accessible due to government restrictions in 2020 and 2021, this year has finally seen a true resurgence in travel.
Daniel Batchelor, vice president, global corporate marketing, communications and social responsibility for Amadeus said that:
The world used to predict technology's impact on travel in an entirely physical way, visualizing ever bigger and faster modes of transport, The future is now here, and it looks very different. People want to reduce their impact on the planet while putting human relationships and wider society first. In this exciting new reality, technology is enabling us to reach these goals. The metaverse, biometrics and traveler expectations from the travel industry are combining to shift the landscape rapidly. It is an incredibly exciting time for the industry,

It is anticipated that in the year 2023, the travel industry will be transformed in a number of ways, including the ability to work from anywhere, traveling more lightly, working remotely, expanding business bonding opportunities, and exploring the metaverse.
Amadeus said that the metaverse, an innovative form of travel agent will usher in an entirely new level of engagement from the traveling public. It's travel, but not quite like we're used to it.
In addition to having the opportunity to "try before you buy," vacationers will also have the ability to participate in more immersive cultural experiences within an online virtual world.
The company believes that travel is where biometric payments, such as those made through ApplePay and GooglePay, will reach the next level. This is despite the fact that biometric payments, such as those made through retail stores, are already commonplace.
Touchless payment solutions that are more convenient and secure will be used for the purchase of train tickets, upgrades to business class, meals served on board aircraft, and late checkouts from hotels.
Another trend that has emerged as a result of travelers becoming more aware of their carbon footprint and no longer being interested in the status symbols of designer luggage is traveling with as little luggage as possible.
By allowing guests to rent bulkier items such as sports equipment and exercise gear when they arrive at their destination, hotels and resorts will make it simpler for visitors to reduce the amount of belongings they bring on their trips.
As more businesses begin to formalize their "work from anywhere" policies, the trend of "working from roam" will cause remote workers to experience a lifestyle more akin to that of nomads.
Those who are interested in spending a month in a different country will have more convenient options available to them thanks to the growing number of nations that are offering visas and other inducements to digital nomads.
Off-grid experiences are unsurprisingly one of the top trends for 2023. Many travelers are eager to get away from the constant distraction of their devices and reconnect with nature.
More travelers than ever before are eager to immerse themselves in new cultures and experiences during their 2023 journeys.
90% of 24,000 travelers polled said they are interested in nostalgic vacations.
Wellness travel is an industry niche that is rapidly expanding. Nearly half of travelers are interested in mindfulness and meditation retreats next year, while others are interested in health or spirituality retreats.
Finally, in 2023, travelers are ready to splurge on bucket-list trips. Many people have realized that life is too short to put off dream destinations for "someday," and they are ready to make their travel fantasies a reality right now.
Amadeus found that business travel is on the rise again, albeit with some notable differences. A recent phenomenon known as "bonding business breaks" is bringing together members of different corporate teams to socialize, work together, and forge stronger connections while away from the office.
