Give the Gift of Timeless Memories During Travel Revival Season
Amidst the travel woes, pacify stressed travellers with gift cards of experiences and the luxury of time.
The Spring of Travel Revival
As many countries loosen Covid restrictions, a comeback in tourism is happening to make up for lost time. After two years plus of staying put, a shift in purchasing pandemic goods has switched over to services and enjoying intangible experiences as a result. An increase of people are seen now splurging on big vacations after a long-term hiatus, bringing back the revival of travel to pre-pandemic levels.
After many cancelled trips and postponed holidays, travellers are swinging back with full force with a thirst to explore the globe, seeking experiences and reconnecting with humanity. The drive to do so has encouraged travellers to spend more money than they have in the past to catch up on missed opportunities, with a newfound desire to travel like never before.
Crushed by Travel Chaos
However, as much as travellers dream of hopping back on the plane, this summer has been met with a wave of flight cancellations, as airports have been the busiest it has ever been after a dormant period, causing disrupted travel journeys and huge pressure on the hospitality industry. The resurgence in travelling has caused airlines struggling to keep up with a shortage of pilots, flight crew and ground staff. London’s Heathrow airport had culled flights, Schipol Airport in Amsterdam has placed a traveller cap and German airline Lufthansa faced strikes are just one of the many disasters that have caused thousands of flights delayed and cancelled.
In July 2022, more flights had been cancelled this year than all of last year. Delayed flights also add extra stress to those that are time-pressed, alongside worries of landing in the wrong city and bags still stuck in their origin destinations. As airlines offer alternative travel options and refunds for new arrangements, travellers are frustrated and unhappy as all holiday plans have changed.
