Online accommodation booking website, recently came out with what it calls ‘ travel trends to look out for in 2015’, to provide insights into smarter and trendier travelling, a company release stated. A few of the trends it highlighted were : Emergence of Poshtels – a hybrid of the ‘hostel’ and the ‘hotel’, especially for the young and single travellers who are are on a budget but still demand a stylized, glamourous hotel experience. Many hostels, competing with the boutique hotel, are reportedly, upgrading their facilities and adapting modern and luxurious design with high-tech facilities like offering restaurants, twin en-suite rooms, free Wi-Fi and breakfast.

‘But first let me take a Braggie’ : Selfies according to were the biggest trend of 2014, emerging out of which is the ‘braggie’, a picture taken and uploaded to social media by a holidaymaker in an attempt to brag about the holidaymaker's exotic surroundings. A view from the hotel window, the room's bed and the surrounding landscape are typical braggies. Hotels are reportedly, tapping into this trend of clicking away by offering customers free perks and rewards if they post their photos on to the hotel's Facebook or Instagram accounts.

Millennials : Hotels are catering to the mobile, 24/7, networking generation known as Millennials, says the report on trends, and consequently, more affordable hotels are getting style upgrades. Millennials crave stylish settings but often lack the deep pockets of Baby Boomers, accounting for the surge of value-chic brands. Thrust for Thrillication: Thrillication is travel with a dose of extreme adventure for the adrenaline junkie. This includes adventure sports with a twist. Activities like snorkelling with sharks, kayaking with whales, Bungi jumping into an active volcano, are some of the high-on-thrills sports.

Live in HD with Techcication: The report indicates that the requirements of the traveller have changed from a good hotel room with comfortable beds to a fully technologically equipped hotel room. Travellers are looking out for hotels that offer free Mobile Check-ins, Wifi, a good television, automated lights etc to maximize the experience of staying at the hotel. It is reported that some hotels are even providing Google Glasses to their in-house guests. Tease your taste buds with Foodcation: Foodcation is a trend where travellers travel to experience the local food culture and delicacies of the place. It could be anything from the deep fried crickets in

Bangkok or having the authentic Italian pizza in its place of origin. Relax and Indulge in Staycation: This trend describes those in need of a vacation but who pressed for time or because of the barrier of space, stay at a hotel in, or close to the city they live in. The staycation provides a break from hectic daily life where the traveller basks in the amenities the hotel has to offer.
