Unmissable Travel 2022 – Best Trips, Exclusive Programs and Post-Covid Vacations

Where to travel post-COVID in 2022?

After the tourism train came to a sudden standstill in 2022, both travelers and tourism companies were thrown into uncertainty. Thankfully, 18 months later we’re starting to see a reemergence of travel as border controls begin to relax and more people are vaccinated ready for international travel.

At Alandis, we’ve been keeping an eye on worldwide travel plans, and travel agencies & tour operators with intelligent, well-thought out trip offerings. Here is our list of the best post-COVID trips and programs for 2022.

The effects of lockdown and travel restrictions are still being felt all over the world.

When travel first resumed it began hyper-locally due to restrictions and a lack of public confidence.

As travel comes back, travelers’ desires have become more demanding.

With new trends in tourism demand and the need for more sustainable practices, the time has come to rethink the business model. Travelers want to leave less of a negative footprint and be more respectful of the environment and society.

Contributing Factors

2022 harbors hope of bringing travel back to the forefront of our minds and plans

More vaccines and relaxation of travel protocols means 2022 is set to be a great year for tourism. 

Despite this, more international coordination is still needed to homogenize protocols at airports. We also need higher adoption rates of vaccines for the safety of travelers.

Criteria: how did we choose the following travel programs?

We based our criteria on tourism trends moving towards 2022, those being safety, sustainability, value for money and a desire to be surprised after being unable to travel for so long.

Sustainable travel

With growing world climate problems travelers are more and more aware of other cultures and their social and climate issues. People are looking toward travel destinations with tour agencies and operators which follow social and environmental best practices. Governments know this, and begin to fund and implement sustainable practices in their local communities. Particularly local governments where tourism is an essential economic pillar.

Value for money

It’s still too early to say that travel has risen in price after the pandemic. Some factors have had an impact however, and bankruptcy of several airlines has reduced supply. There is therefore less competition. Despite no significant drop in pricing, there have been occasional offers. Always scheduling air travel in advance is a good technique to get good prices. Airlines allow a flexible cancellation policy of up to a 100% refund if you cancel 60 days in advance. We’ve taken value for money into account for the most desirable destinations in 2022. 

Safety

Health & safety is among every traveler’s greatest concerns which is why all of the destinations chosen on this list have taken significant measures to look after both locals and tourists. Bonus points for early vaccine distribution, stringent local sanitary protocols, and great weather that favors outdoor activities.

Exclusive and unusual

People are looking for the out of the ordinary to delight their five senses, from the strange and unknown, to less overwhelmed and off-the-beaten-track spots that many tourists are yet to discover.
