Travel Trends for 2022: Longer Stays, Digital Nomads and Relocations

Travel Trends for 2022 Longer Stays Digital Nomads and Relocations

When the CEO of arguably the most disruptive travel company of the past 30 years tweets about travel trends, the world listens. Sharing interesting data that travellers are now staying longer, Brian Chesky, CEO of Airbnb has pinpointed a growing trend. Since the pandemic, more people are location independent when it comes to work and are certainly taking advantage of it to travel.

What’s Happening in Travel in 2022, According to Brian Chesky

In 2022, I think the biggest trend in travel will be people spreading out to thousands of towns and cities, staying for weeks, months, or even entire seasons at a time”.
Chesky Tweeted recently.

Such is his conviction in the new travel trend, he’s put himself out there. He’s “Living on Airbnb” for the time being to understand the experience first-hand. Chesky also noted that cities and towns now have to be more competitive to attract the new flexible traveller.

How Does Marbella Cater to Location Independent Entrepreneurs and Employees?

Resorts such as Marbella traditionally have their peak tourist season in July and August but that is slowly evolving. As more people are staying longer and not just for the summer, the market is changing. Marbella has a great deal to offer the digital nomad or budding entrepreneur.  The city is well-connected with a growing business scene of its own, and plenty to do outside of work from golf to paddle tennis. See, The Best Golf Courses of Marbella if you don’t believe us!

Attitudes to travel and work are changing and at Swish, we are all for it.  More of our own clients are looking for accommodation that still lets them work when needed. We currently have a number of medium-term rentals booked by location independent tech entrepreneurs.

What’s more, some of our homeowners now even prioritise desks and offices over extra bedrooms.

As Chesky puts it, the “decentralization of living” is now here.  Are you ready?
