Jan 25, 2023

What You Must Consider While Holiday Planning for 2023

Now that we’re out of the grips of Covid we’re all looking forward to our family holiday 2023, aren’t we?

The pandemic changed everything. People with children are seeking deeper connection and greater meaning from their free time.

Of course, the family holiday returned in 2022. But this year is shaping up to be an even more exciting one for family travel. Tourism trends tell us that families desire experiences that create lasting memories.

What key tourism trends will shape the family holiday this year?

Here are a dozen ways in which people will want to create a memorable family holiday in 2023 ─ and that could well shape your holiday planning.

1.    Families Will Want to Step Out of Their Comfort Zones

With the world opening back up after the pandemic, many families are eager to try new things and create new, unique experiences with quality family time. Things that they have not done before, and things they can do together. Whether it’s bungee jumping in New Zealand or taking a hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti, families will be looking to create unforgettable experiences in 2023.

2.    Family-Run Resorts Will Outshine Big Commercial Parks

It’s all about personal connections, and family-run resorts offer a more personalised, intimate experience. Such resorts provide a sense of community and hospitality that larger chains just can’t match.

3.    Multi-Gen Holidays Are Here to Stay

We’ve spent too much time in the last couple of years apart. With more people vaccinated and Covid less potent, families can travel together safely again. Multi-gen holidays will be a popular trend in 2023, as families take advantage of this opportunity to bond and make memories with their loved ones.

4.    Planned-For-You Holidays

As busy parents know, holiday planning can be a daunting task. That’s why planned-for-you holidays will be a trend in 2023. These holidays take the planning and decision-making out of the hands of the parents, and put it into the hands of professional travel planners. This way, parents can relax and enjoy their holiday without worrying about all the logistics when they are at the resort of their choice.

5.    All-Inclusive Resorts

Convenience for parents. With everything included in one package, all-inclusive resorts will be a popular choice for parents in 2023. These resorts offer a stress-free holiday experience, as parents don’t have to worry about budgeting for meals and activities.

6.    Travel as a Form of Self-Care

A tough couple of years has created the desire for self-reflection, and many families will be looking for ways to take care of their mental and physical well-being in 2023. Travel can be a great form of self-care, as it allows families to disconnect from the stressors of everyday life and reconnect with nature, culture, and each other.

7.    Road Trips Appeal (Even with Children!)

Road trips will be a popular trend in 2023, as families take advantage of the open road and the freedom it offers. These trips offer a chance to explore new places and create lasting memories with your children.

8.    Connection With Countryside

It’s not only human connections that people crave. Many families will be looking for ways to reconnect with nature and the countryside in 2023. Whether it’s camping in the mountains or hiking through a national park, these trips will provide families with a chance to reconnect with the natural world and each other.

9.    Off-Grid Adventures

As more families are looking for ways to unplug from technology and social media, off-grid adventures will be popular. These trips offer a chance to disconnect from the digital world and reconnect with nature and each other.

10. Inflation Is Not a Factor

Despite the cost-of-living crisis, families will not be deterred from traveling in 2023. Instead, they will prioritise the family holiday, while looking for ways to make their money go further.

11. Relaxation, Exploration, and Inspiration

As families negotiate the new normal, fears of recession and inflation, relaxation, exploration, and inspiration will be key themes in family travel in 2023. Families will be looking for ways to relax and unwind, explore new places and cultures, and find inspiration for the future. These trips will provide a chance for families to bond, recharge, and create memories that will last a lifetime.

12. France Is the Most Popular Destination

France is expected to be one of the most popular destinations for families in 2023, according to American Express. With its rich history, culture, and beautiful landscapes, France is a perfect destination for families looking for relaxation, exploration, and inspiration.
