The types of holiday people want to take in 2012 could be very different to what has been seen in the past.
The number of people planning to take flights to South Africa to take part in specialist trips could be on the increase during 2012.
A shift will be seen in the types of holidays people are taking and where they plan to travel to, according to Abta – The Travel Association.
The organisation predicted more people will be looking to try out specialist holidays, ranging from cruising to adventure, as well as learning and activity trips.
“Holidaymakers are also expected to seek out destinations that have a strong and authentic sense of location, in everything from food and setting to excursions and entertainment,” the travel group added.
In addition, it noted that both budget and luxury trips will remain popular, although the middle market will see a decline in popularity.
Travellers on flights to South Africa and other locations who are travelling with children could make their journey more enjoyable by following the advice of Liat Hughes Joshi, parenting writer and author of Raising Children: The Primary Years and pack new toys to keep them entertained.
