Create Meaningful Impact for the Local Community With These Travel Experiencesopens in new window
Travel has become more than just a holiday for many people. Recent research conducted by Booking.com shows that travellers are not only dreaming of their next adventure, but also the meaningful impact they want to have on the place they visit. Locally, visiting places around the country where the impact of the lack of international tourism has been most keenly felt means travellers can be assured their local tourist dollars are going to those who need it in these trying times. While the landscape of travel has dramatically changed this year, we can all reinvest our international travel budget into the domestic tourism market. Below is a list of incredible travel experiences Kiwis can have in their own backyard for a meaningful experience while having a minimal impact on the environment.

Lessons learned traveling during the pandemic: personal precautions, deals and moreopens in new window
When traveling by auto, book that hotel/motel the afternoon you plan to arrive. Using Booking.com or Priceline.com will usually net you a very nice motel room at more than half off, if you wait till the last minute to book. And, with travel reduced, you’ll seldom ever find a hotel/motel booked out. We also pick older motels/hotels, with max of two stories, realizing we don’t need an elevator to get to a second-floor room.

What travel looks like in 2021: Why Australians are keen to book a holiday on their OWN, take shorter breaks to avoid disappointment and focus more on eating out next yearopens in new window
Australians are changing the way they travel in 2021 with more people taking solo holidays, booking shorter breaks and steering clear of luxury hotels in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Booking.com spoke to 20,000 travellers spanning 28 countries - including 995 individuals from Down Under - to compile its top five predictions for the new year - as governments begin to promote 'travel bubbles' and forecast more flight routes. But the online travel agency's research shows that 43 per cent of people still plan to holiday within their own country in the medium term (7-12 months time), with 35 per cent planning to do so in the longer term (over a year's time).
