When we’re at home, our favorite electronic devices are always at hand. Savvy travel companies are making the most of that by allowing their guests to stay plugged in during their forays into far away places. Cruise ships are increasingly offering wifi onboard. Airlines provide free streaming movies and TV shows during flights. And, say goodbye to paper tickets. Many companies are creating apps that allow easy online check-in and bookings for excursions right from your phone.
One of the most unusual 2014 travel ideas is the pop-up hotel. These are modular buildings that are assembled for a short period and then moved to a new destination. Design Hotels has created peaceful yoga ashrams in Bali and Rome. Pop-Up and Snoozebox create one-of-a-kind lodging experiences throughout the UK.
Accommodations come in all shapes. One company created luxury tents on the grounds of what was once English royalty’s summer estate. Other companies are putting up guests in everything from converted shipping containers to silver Airstreams to yurts. Fans rave about the unique experiences and the reduced environmental footprint that pop-ups provide.
Where will 2014 take you? The sky’s the limit with this year’s travel trends.
