In 2023, travellers will book several trips and rely on guides for authentic experiences

According to the summer 2023 Global Rescue Travellers Sentiment and Safety Survey, travellers are planning multiple trips in 2023. According to Dan Richards, CEO of The Global Rescue Companies and member of the U.S. Department of Commerce’s U.S. Travel and Tourism Advisory Board, “half of the world’s most seasoned travellers are planning four or more trips this year, and they’re using credit card reward points to help pay for them.”

One-fifth of those polled said they would take six or more vacations in 2023, while 31% said they would take four to five leisure trips and 41% said they would take two to three. Only 7% of respondents said they would take a single vacation, and 1% said they would not take any vacations at all in 2023.

It’s not surprising that the majority of respondents (64%) said they used credit card reward programmes to reduce the cost of vacations and leisure travel due to inflation and rising travel costs.

Travellers are making up for missed opportunities to travel because of the pandemic. Since COVID-19, the demand for adventure tourism has skyrocketed, with African safaris, hiking excursions, camping trips and motorbike tours seeing the fastest growth. However, the survey found that travellers’ willingness to take risks has a limit.

Even if they could afford to pay half a million dollars for a few minutes of weightlessness, the vast majority of respondents (75%) would opt out of space travel. 65% of respondents indicated that they would go on snorkelling or scuba diving tours to see shipwrecks, underwater caves, reefs, and other marine life. Only 5% of people say they would visit an underwater hotel or eat at an underwater eatery. Less than 2% of people would sign up for a submarine tour of the deep sea.

In an increasingly interconnected and globalised world, travellers are demonstrating a growing desire for authentic experiences, according to Richards. Although pent-up demand is contributing to the adventure travel boom, we don’t anticipate it to slow down anytime soon.

In 2023, the majority (61%) of travellers will be using a guide, an outfitter, or an expedition company as more people plan multiple trips and return to travel. “Respondents consistently indicated they include on-the-ground experts on their trips to reap the benefits of their local language skills, cultural knowledge, touring efficiency, and overall safety,” said Matt Aubin, associate director of Global Rescue partner and channel programmes.
