Planning a Trip? Amex Survey Reveals Travel Mania Coming in 2022 

Amex Survey Reveals Travel Mania

American Express (Amex) recently released the results of a survey for travel trends to be mindful of this year. 

The Amex survey, conducted in seven countries (Australia, Canada, India, Japan, Mexico, United Kingdom, and the United States) found that 86% of travelers are DESPERATE to spend big, travel to multiple destinations, celebrate important life events, and cross off items on their bucket lists in 2022. 

“People are going to take more trips this year; bookings in 2022 are already up 35% compared to 2019,” said Audrey Hendley, president of American Express Travel. “The global travel trend report shows that tourists are making up for lost time and being more selective on who they’ll travel with, the places they visit, and how they spend their money as the travel industry continues to move forward.” 

Over 62% of respondents to the survey are planning to take not just one… but TWO to FOUR trips in this year alone!

This is possible now more than ever before thanks to a massive increase in remote working options. However, you will need to be familiar with different digital technology beforehand. 

Welcome to this brave new era where anyone can enjoy traveling for long periods while never having to worry about skipping meetings, missing important mail, or other work-related matters.

How to work while you travel in 2022 

Whenever you travel, whether on a business trip or a vacation, you have to brace for any unforeseen circumstances. 

Now that a growing number of companies are allowing their people to work remotely, many employees no longer have to worry about maxing out their leave credits to go on vacation. 

Moreover, there are excellent tools and practical strategies every digital nomad has at their disposal. When you're a frequent traveler, you need to be creative in finding ways to earn on the go. 

Tools

Virtual mailbox:

How many frequent travelers still don't have a virtual mailbox these days? 

One of every employee’s biggest concerns as they travel is missing important mail. A virtual mailbox is a mailing service at a secure location that allows you to manage and access all of your physical mail from your mobile device. 

Travel booking apps:

If you’re traveling to multiple locations, chances are, the only amenities you’ll need are a comfy desk and a stable internet connection. When you use travel booking apps such as Airbnb, Agoda, or Booking.com, you can easily filter your lodging needs to match your budget and preferred location. 

Strategies

Travel light:

One of the golden rules of traveling is: “Only bring what you’ll need.”

Aside from packing clothes that you’ll actually need and work essentials, make sure to keep your luggage light to avoid incurring any additional fees. What’s more, bear in mind that you can always buy personal necessities and toiletries once you reach your destination. 

Do your homework:

Before you set your sights on a foreign destination, start with the basics. Be sure to learn the country or city you wish to visit. This includes researching the cost of living, basic phrases, travel requirements, and culture.
