Virtuoso reveals autumn/winter 2022 trends

Global luxury travel agency network Virtuoso® has shared its luxury travel trends for autumn/winter 2022, with cruising and wellness top sellers.

The organisation comprised of travel agencies, travel advisors, hotels, cruise lines, airlines, tour companies and premier destinations, found that islands and beaches are topping travellers’ lists for winter travel, followed by trips with a wellness component and ocean cruises.

With heavy bookings into 2023, cruising is leading the way. The Caribbean islands seem to be gaining popularity through the rest of 2022 and into 2023 and wellness-focused trips were the only category to see a year-on-year increase: 2021 (13%) vs. 2022 (24%).

Globally, hotels are seeing a positive bounceback with bookings up 173% on where they were at the same point in 2019.

The data also suggested that luxury travellers are willing to spend more money to get the experience they want.

Overall, booking trends are indicative of a strong autumn/winter season during which volume will remain above 2019 levels.
