Travel Trends of Digital Nomads

Sep 1, 2021

Opportunities to receive the Covid-19 vaccine and leave the confines of our homes are becoming more tangible each day. Many are feeling hopeful about the summer ahead that will likely provide even more chances to interact with others and return to a sense of normalcy. There are, however, trends that have become more prominent in the light of the pandemic that could remain popular even after vaccines have been distributed and destinations have reopened. One of these is the digital nomad. 

The freedom to roam

Digital nomads represent an evolution of the work-from-home lifestyle that has become more popular in recent years. As companies have begun to adopt a strategy of remote work, employees have taken these opportunities to relocate for short or long periods of time. Inexpensive costs of living, flexible hours, and the desire to explore new places all appeal to digital nomads, who have taken to working exclusively from new remote locations. Certain demographics with more freedom to roam – such as young couples, or those just starting their careers – are finding this a great option, as well as families with children who can utilise online learning. 

Covid-19 has made this trend increasingly popular for several reasons. In response to the virus, companies have become more flexible by allowing employees to adopt a schedule that is partially or fully remote, and they have discovered this can create a highly efficient work environment. Many organisations no longer require employees to be in the office every day of the week, or even at all. In addition, as the pandemic has continued, employees have looked for ways to avoid feeling completely isolated and cooped up at home. Pursuing a digital nomad lifestyle gives them a way to isolate in new places while focusing on work at the same time.
