Travel trends for 2016

TripAdvisor has the results of surveys the organization conducted attempting to analyze travel trends for 2016. The study didn't focus on particular destination, but rather attitudes of travelers moving forward.

Some of the more interesting findings:

- Globally, 69% of travelers plan to try something new in 2016.

- 17% will try solo travel for the first time in 2016; 15% will try adventure travel for the first time.

- Globally, 63% of travelers said air conditioning is a must-have when choosing a place to stay. That makes it more of a deal-breaker than breakfast (40%) or a swimming pool (26%). -

- Nearly half of hoteliers globally plan to increase room rates in 2016.

The rest of the study can be found here. There is good news and bad. The rising tide of prices is the bad. The good is that more people seem interested in getting out of their own bubbles and seeing some of the world.
