Travelers want to go to extremes in 2014 – so travel agents should not hold back from steering their clients in new directions. So says travel trends expert Daniel Levine, executive director of the Avant-Guide Institute. Levine cites suborbital space flights, hotels inspired by luxury fashion brands and marijuana tours as some of the hot new options for travelers. “We’re seeing that 2014 will be the year for experiences and the extreme bragging rights that go with them,” he told Travel Market Report. “With the economy getting better, agents should encourage their clients to trade up for these experiences. People will be more receptive.” Here are seven travel trends Levine believes we’ll see this year.
