Top trends fueling travelers’wanderlust post lockdown

As communities around the world slowly begin to open their doors, the idea of future travel is beginning to inspire everyone who has been home sheltering. 

From cozy mountain cabins to beat the summer, poolside respites to cool off the heat wave, it’s the outdoors which is calling out to everyone. People have spent months cocooned at home, and despite the fear, they want to get out and travel, to live again.

Short “drivable” destinations are what people are looking at, as air travel remains uncertain, people want to get to a place within short travel time of their homes. The beaches of Goa, the mountains in Himachal, the cool air of Mahabaleshwar are just some of the domestic holiday destinations that are trending in India. 

Airbnb’s internal data reveals early signs of future trip planning through search and wish lists created by guests ready to reconnect with each other and the world. Travel might be restricted for now, but that isn’t stopping guests from dreaming of one-of-a-kind experiences in far flung destinations. Week-over-week, guests are increasingly turning to wish lists to save listings they hope to travel to one day. 

India’s tourist hot spot, Goa, is now just a flight away. Travelers can book dreamy villas placed in the heart of Goa, that are perfect to satisfy your travel cravings. With breathtaking views, your own plunge pool and one or two friends or family is all you need. 

The pollution levels are at an all-time low and the view of the Himalayan mountain tops are what most travelers are dreaming about. A road trip into the hills with cooler temperatures and the panoramic views of the snowy peaks from your personal sauna, are sure to tick some boxes of your travel bucket list. There are many cottages one can rent with amenities which will make you feel it’s your home away from home. 

The Indian capital is home to lavish apartments that could turn your weekend around. From luxury terrace apartments to farmhouses, it’s the perfect abode to take a short weekend staycation with your partner. 

An artist studio in Jaipur surrounded by heritage buildings, palaces and forts will transport you to a bygone era. 

Villas are also the top 10 most wish listed space types globally and they stand second in the wish list inclusions at more than 20 percent growth week-over-week. When it comes to special occasions beach fronts were the top pick before lockdown. Top keywords from wish lists created in the last 60 days indicate guests are looking to Airbnb to commemorate special occasions that may have been cancelled and are also looking to enjoy the sun in the warmer months ahead.
