Instead of Groundhog Day, we’re celebrating Hipmunk Day by sharing our 2015 travel predictions (which are much more useful than knowing whether spring will come early). So whether or not the groundhog saw its shadow, you can rely on these tips to get you through your 2015 travels.
Americans will use more vacation days.
Do yourself a favor and request those days off before your cubemate does.
The new wave of travel gadgets won’t be adopted quickly.
Yes, even the delightful bluetooth selfie stick doesn’t have many takers.
Gas prices are down so more people will drive, but that doesn’t mean you should drive.
If you think you’ll save a few bucks by driving, then so do millions of other Americans. Try a train when traveling regionally instead. Hipmunk shows them.
Millennials will out-travel Generation Xers internationally.
Does this mean millennials are generally more internationally aware than Gen Xers? You be the judge.
Americans will cross Europe off their bucket lists.
It’ll be like a 20% off sale once you land because the US dollar to euro conversion rate is the best it’s been in more than a decade.
More international travelers will visit Milan than any other city in the world.
Ever been to a World’s Fair? Neither have we. But millions will go this summer and fall.
