Luxury Travel | Top 5 Influencers You Need To Follow In 2021

Travelling isn’t just about the sightseeing. It’s an opportunity to immerse yourself in new cultures, try new foods, and even learn a little of the local lingo whilst rubbing shoulders with the locals – a luxury travel opportunity we all need right now.

Or, as we should say in the current climate, waving from a two-metre distance. And, of course, it’s your chance to be treated like royalty from start to finish and waited on hand and foot – which is the perfect way to relax and unwind after a stressful year, and something we’re no doubt all yearning for.

The travel industry has witnessed an unprecedented collapse in the past year due to COVID-19. Some industry sectors are expected to rebound quicker than others but uncertainties and risks remain high. The ‘staycation’ is making a comeback as heads of state are slowly lifting lockdown restrictions, allowing families to form bigger social bubbles once more.

With inside locations restricted, there is no question that sustainable nature-based travel will become ever more popular than before. Camping, trekking, swimming and outdoor adventure lifestyles will be more valued as a safe, seamless and authentic experience.

With our world having such a strong connection with technology, our relationship with the online world will slowly sail our travel industry into recovery. However, as our restrictions begin to peel away, giving us a taste of adventure, its safe to say that we can start thinking about planning for those luxury getaway escapes.

So, if ever there was a time when scrolling your Instagram feed was considered a worthwhile use of your time, it’s now, and with a sea of high-profile influencers showcasing some of the finest luxury resorts and destinations in the world, browsing their feeds can give you some far better ideas for your dream trip than a standard high-end holiday brochure.
