Travel news: Trend predictions for 2011

Jan 16, 2011

In 2011, travelers want to be able to book their travel with their mobile devices, and they are looking for vacation package deals where they can save on airfare, hotel, and car by purchasing all trip aspects at once. This is according to in-house industry experts at Orbitz, who are also predicting London and Australia to be the hotspots for the current year.

London's popularity is already noticeably improved due to the royal wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton that will take place on April 29. And when Oprah Winfrey hollered out to her audience, "We're going to Australia!" she granted the country her noble touch of gold - whatever Oprah talks about, is like sending a message on a skyrocket to be emblazoned on the global skies.

And what will be the best destinations in 2011?

If you're looking for a great family destination in 2011, Hawaii will be home of the long-awaited and highly-anticipated Disney Aulani Resort at Ko'olina, scheduled to open in August. "This new construction is Disney's first foray into the Hawaii market and will give the island an even more magical feel," said Lisa Kroll, Hawaii destination expert and Regional Director for Orbitz Worldwide. "Travelers can also expect lower airfares due to increased flight service to the islands."

Las Vegas
Looking for a vacation destination filled with great hotels and star-studded nightclub experiences? If so, Las Vegas is your vacation spot for 2011. "As Las Vegas winds down its last big wave of hotel construction, consumers can look forward to more luxurious accommodations, such as the brand new Cosmopolitan, which features a hot new nightclub and awe-inspiring views from private terraces overlooking the Las Vegas Strip," said Reid Webster, Las Vegas destination expert and Regional Director for Orbitz Worldwide. "With increased room supply in the destination and the need to get heads in beds, consumers can also expect Las Vegas to offer affordable average daily hotel rates in 2011."

"Pristine beaches, varied entertainment, and a modern and complete airport and hotel infrastructure, continue to make Cancun a traveler favorite year after year," said Antonio Pitta, Cancun destination expert and Regional Director for Orbitz Worldwide. "And, with such easy access from the United States, Cancun is expected to once again top international destination travel lists in 2011."
