This blog’s readership, like the author, is on the road quite a bit. So, we all should be interested in Travel & Leisure’s 2013 Travel Trends including
- Connectivity is a major theme in this year’s travel innovations, among them: better mobile maps (yes, even you, Apple); the pioneering electronic wallet app, Passbook (yes, we’re talking about you again, Apple); and ubiquitous in-flight Wi-Fi.
- the peer-to-peer model pioneered by millennials gets a new twist as transportation-sharing services multiply, from cabs to bikes to hourly car rentals
- Airbnb’s remarkable transition from a couch-surfing resource into a polished online house-rental behemoth has opened the door for even more sophisticated web-based rental services such as Inspirato and Portico.
