Five Ways Future Travel Can Look Like

The holidays of the future bring with it a mix of experience laced with technology as transportation to the moon, robotic butlers, better peer-to-peer sharing from accommodations to transportation and more. These five have enough technological and design backing they could materialize in the next few years.

Futuristic travel does not always mean technological advancement for anything related to the aspect immediately. According to Lonely Planet, it is likely sustainable travel will prosper effectively. Data from their survey indicates that 70% of travelers demand travel companies and luxury brands to prioritize the safety and security of the environment as they expand their business.

The story of a photographer who ventured secretly with a camera in North Korea was exciting, daring and suspenseful -- tempting many travelers to attempt an extreme travel itinerary journeying into the Communist capital. The Guardian believes the trend of "extreme travel" or venturing into "forbidden zones" where "conflict or political instability renders it impossible for travelers to enter" could pick up in the next two to three years.

Hotel rooms of the future will always carry with it a smartphone to access the elevator and the guest's room and this smartphone has applications designed to make the guest's stay amazing -- including the ability to turn out lights using the smartphone, stream movies or music and order food. Like in movies and cartoons, robot butlers will serve guests -- and "Botlr" is already on the job in California.

If Google Glasses and augmented reality would become a worldwide industry, reservations for plane tickets, hotel reservations and itinerary dealings can be done with just a few blinks. The need for tour guides could be dispelled by Google Glasses' navigational capabilities that indicate information about famous sights -- and suggests where to dine or spend an afternoon later on.

Once Virgin Galactic and even SpaceX figure out a viable and affordable way to reach the moon -- which could be just a few more decades -- humanity can finally take on a recreational voyage to the moon and back. According to The Guardian, it is possibly more expensive than sub-orbital travel, which costs about $75,000 per round trip, but still, it is a once-in-a-lifetime truly premium experience.
