New Delhi, October 26, 2020: Travel is seeing a comeback, but in a new normal, new trend continue to define consumer preferences.

From taking life to the road, to consciously and safely reconnecting with the places and people that matter most, Airbnb and travelers predict what travel will look like in 2021.

The year of the staycation

Guests are seeking unique travel experiences by staying in one-of-a-kind accommodations on Airbnb, but are preferring to be close to home or in their home cities. The staycation trend resonates with travellers, pointing to the perennial human need for new experiences, either for short stays or for stays that are a month or more. With access to quiet nooks in busy cities, close to parks and gardens, immersive natural surroundings and wide-open spaces, travellers are looking for respite from the everyday in accommodations such as condominiums, farm stays, villas, and cottages in places such as:

· Bengaluru, Karnataka

· Mangalore, Karnataka

· Pune, Maharashtra

· Guwahati, Assam
