Predictions for Business Travel in 2022

Companies are looking forward to the future of travel in the next year. The pandemic has caused travel to permanently change, and when you travel to your next business event, you will notice these changes in both your domestic travel and international travel.  

International business travel is expected to increase by as much as 34 percent in 2022, most likely to make up for some of the losses due to the pandemic.

Seasoned travelers are looking to take that long-coveted bucket list trip that they have been putting off.

Companies are looking forward to the future of travel in the next year. The pandemic has caused travel to permanently change, and when you travel to your next business event, you will notice these changes in both your domestic travel and international travel.  

International business travel is expected to increase by as much as 34 percent in 2022, most likely to make up for some of the losses due to the pandemic.

Paul Metselaar, CEO of Ovation Travel Group, says the international travel demand is a reflection of the historic desire to cross borders and have new experiences. “We’re seeing high levels of pent up demand for international travel, certainly the most since 2019,” Metselaar says.

In that spirit, we have come up with some predictions on how business travel will progress in 2022.

Predictions For Business Travel

The following are some aspects of business travel that will be prevalent in 2022:

Vaccination Rates

In 2022 and beyond, the vaccination rate of a business travel destination will be considered a key factor in the future of travel. These companies will without a doubt incorporate a destination’s vaccine rates into their future travel policy.

Mutual Recognition

A standard acceptance of vaccines and COVID-19 testing will need to be established on an international level. This will make it easier for business, hotels, and venues alike to determine which travelers can have access to business destinations.

Variant Prevalence

As the coronavirus keeps mutating into more and more variants, business travelers will take note. When countries across the world see different variant outbreaks, business travelers will most likely avoid the higher-risk areas.

Testing Accessibility

The now all-important PCR testing will play a key role in business travel going forward. The availability and costs of this testing will determine a business’s decision to travel to a specific destination.

Travel Pricing to Increase in 2022

Due to the large hit the travel industry suffered from COVID-19 restrictions, all sectors of the travel industry will be affected by increased costs. For instance, the costs of air travel are predicted to increase 3.3 percent in 2022, while the costs of hotels are expected to increase an astonishing 13 percent worldwide.
