Affluent Travellers Willing to Pay More for Sustainable Experiences

Results from a recent survey conducted by global travel network Virtuoso highlight how some of the world’s most discerning travellers view sustainable tourism. The results found that while travel rebounds in new and innovative ways, travellers remain ever conscious of their place and impact in the world, with more than 80% of respondents indicating that the pandemic has made them want to travel more responsibly in the future. This figure echoes identical findings from a survey conducted last year, proving that travelling sustainably continues to be a top priority for luxury travellers.

New ETC research explores consumer travel attitudes and expectations to drive recovery | Innovation and trends in tourism | Scoop.it
As travel restrictions are eased globally and the European tourism sector bounces back from the COVID-19 pandemic, countries are finally seeing a significant rebound in tourist arrivals. To manage this recovery process, it is important to understand how consumers have been affected by the pandemic, as well as their attitudes and expectations towards the future. Recognising this, and with the summer 2022 season approaching, the European Travel Commission has published a market study titled: “Exploring Consumer Travel Attitudes and Expectations to Drive Tourism Recovery”.

Spending $1.8 Trillion A Year To Finance Our Own Extinction

Spending $1.8 Trillion A Year To Finance Our Own Extinction | Innovation and trends in tourism | Scoop.it

Financing Our Own Extinction
The study provides an estimate of the total value of environmentally harmful subsidies (EHS) across key sectors. It finds the fossil fuel, agriculture and water industries receive more than 80% of all environmentally harmful subsidies per year, depleting natural resources, degrading global ecosystems, and perpetuating unsustainable levels of production and consumption, in addition to exacerbating global inequalities said the media release.

What are EHSs?
“Environmentally harmful subsidies (EHS) are government programs that encourage unsustainable production or consumption, and in doing so harm nature by exhausting natural resources, degrading global ecosystems, and damaging planetary health. These subsidies were established with good intent: to promote economic access and solve social issues such as food security, or improve access to energy and clean drinking water. However, often the intended social goal of subsidies has been pursued without consideration of their environmental impacts. This siloed approach has contributed to the many crises afflicting the natural world, placing livelihoods and economies at risk.”

How European Leisure Travel Is Evolving

How European Leisure Travel Is Evolving | Innovation and trends in tourism | Scoop.it
Much like the U.S., albeit a few months behind on the curve, European hotel operators are seeing a massive jump in leisure travel demand heading into this summer travel season.

But as that travel comes back, hoteliers are realizing the last two years have changed how consumers broadly view the world and how leisure travel fits into it.

To put that into context, Alexander Schneider, president of Nikki Beach Hotels and Resorts, said it's important to remember that demand never went away during the pandemic.

"I wouldn't say we saw a dip in demand," he said, while speaking during the "New Leisure" panel at the 2022 International Hospitality Investment Forum. "We saw a dip in the accessibility of locations."

Chinese tourists 2.0 – Coming anytime soon? | Phnom Penh Post

Chinese tourists 2.0 – Coming anytime soon? | Phnom Penh Post | Innovation and trends in tourism | Scoop.it
Regional tourism is grappling with the absence of the prolific travellers and big spenders – the Chinese tourists. Cambodia, which has welcomed over two million Chinese tourists before Covid-19, is reeling from the economic loss despite being the first to fully open last November

‘To put it simply, tourism in Southeast Asia will not see a full recovery until Chinese travellers come back,” said Hannah Pearson, a Southeast Asia travel and tourism industry analyst.

Truth be told, it is not just Southeast Asian tourism but the world in general, given the fact that it is the largest tourism source market since 2012.

But the protracted travel restrictions relating to its zero-Covid policy, multiple pre-and-post departure tests and quarantine imposed on inbound travellers (which eased slightly this week) have discouraged its citizens from venturing abroad.

Traveler interest in sustainability up, but info still lacking | PhocusWire | Innovation and trends in tourism | Scoop.it
In the last year, the number of consumers expressing interest in traveling more sustainably is up 10%, but many also say they don’t know how to find sustainable accommodations or only review a property’s sustainability efforts if the information is easily accessible.

The data comes from a survey commissioned by Booking.com in February of more than 30,000 people from 32 countries and territories who had traveled at least once in the past 12 months and who plan to travel in 2022. Details are published in the brand's Sustainable Travel Report 2022.

Energie - taux de retour énergétique (EROI) : Dans la physique les miracles n’existent pas

Energie - taux de retour énergétique (EROI) : Dans la physique les miracles n’existent pas | Innovation and trends in tourism | Scoop.it
La fin de l’âge de pierre ne s’est pas terminée par la disparition des pierres. La fin de l’âge du pétrole ne se terminera pas par la disparition du pétrole. Cependant, les extractions de gaz et de pétrole, comme dans toutes les autres matières premières, nécessitent de plus en plus d’efforts et d’énergies.

A l’image de la devise des jeux olympiques, la société humaine cherche son énergie plus profondément, plus loin et plus épars. L’efficacité technologique ayant également des limites, on se retrouve devant l’obligation de mettre de plus en plus d’énergies pour en obtenir de moins en moins en retour et ça… c’est ballot.
