Interesting Travel Trends For 2022



2020 was the year we stayed at home, 2021 was the year of the staycation, 2022 is destined to be the year we explore again! It is set to be an interesting year for travel, reinforcing the travel trends established in 2021 of exploring our backyards along with the introduction of new travel trends including self-care holidays and mindful travel. Whatever type of holiday you are interested in, the next few months are set to be filled with travel, experiences and adventure! Here are some tips for the trends of the upcoming months.

The Year Of The GOAT

Have you planned your GOAT for 2022? Yes, you read that correctly! You may be more familiar with this acronym being used about footballers or actors, however, 2022 is set to be the year we decide to take the Greatest of all Trips! (GOAT). With Expedia coining the term GOAT for 2022. Many people have been grounded for the past two years and some have spent the last number of months planning and plotting their once in a lifetime trip and experience, whether it be travelling across Australia or going overseas, there is an urge to ‘go big’ when planning this year’s trip and we agree it’s well deserved! In Australia, high-end resorts, secluded islands and some of the best restaurants are booked out well in advance so there is no time like the present to get organised.

Scrap That Schedule

After months of continuous schedules working from home, travellers are seeking holidays that go with the flow and embrace newfound freedoms. With travel plans changing at the drop of a hat, many people are happy to make plans off the cuff and book more spontaneous holidays and live in the moment this year.

Enjoy A Splurge-Cation

2022 is set to be the year we treat ourselves! Since trips this year have been long-awaited, lots of travellers are seeking a little luxury on their trip, from upgrading their hotel room to a suite to booking into a luxury resort on a secluded island. Many planners are ready to treat themselves.

Mindful Vacations

A large portion of people believe that travel is good for your mental and emotional wellbeing above anything else. Travelling for self-care will increase in popularity in the upcoming months. This comes after two years of the pandemic and the stresses it has brought. 2022 is set to be a year that travellers reset and wellness holidays will be a key feature in this. Activities including meditation retreats, yoga weekends away and outdoor adventures are all set to be popular trips away.

Take A Roadtrip

Road trips across Australia are to remain popular in 2022, indicating a further rise in domestic travel. As the borders across the country are now open and the border of Western Australia is soon to open in February, exploring different states by road will give travellers the freedom of adventure in the comfort of a campervan or rental car, this will be a popular option when people go for weekend getaways or even long-haul trips interstate.

House Parties Are Back

After many months in lockdown, everyone has the urge to reunite with family and friends after all that time spent isolated at home. Although it may be a different style of house party that is on the horizon, with growth in Airbnb and other rental sites with a rise in demand for big house rentals, travellers now want to host smaller parties or get-togethers with friends and family safely as part of their holiday away this year.

Upgrade WFH To WFA

Working from home is set to upgrade to working from anywhere. Now you can take your job with you, without worrying about border closures or fearing the need to isolate, suddenly working from a remote island is possible.

Bucket List Destinations Evolve To Bucket List Experiences

We are no longer satisfied to visit a destination, we now want to experience it, touch, feel and learn about these iconic places and live with the local communities. Take your bucket list one step further and visit the Museum of Underwater Art near Cairns or watch the stars with an astronomer at Uluru.

Happy Customers!

Best place to park near the airport if you are travelling domestically or overseas. Prices are reasonable but their customer service is what makes them shine! Always a pleasant experience!



It's very close to the airport, the shuttle service worked beautifully, and it was reasonably priced. However, above all I was impressed by the friendliness of every employee I met working there.



Have been a customer on Park on King about 4 times now. Always impressed by their service and going above and beyond to make you feel like you're in safe hands.



The team was on time and informative and knew exactly where to be for for our return transfers. Made it very easy especially with 2 young children.



My goodness, the service was excellent and efficient on time for drop off and pick up. They took the hassle away and the trouble of trying to find a safe spot to park your car and return to pick it up.
