With a new year upon us, we’re gearing up for an exceptional year of journeys, adventures, explorations, and relaxing getaways.

Here are the biggest travel trends we will be seeing in 2019, according to the experts:
This is a term that has been popping up everywhere, and it’s inspired by the desire to not only have an extended time to bond as a family, but also broadening your family’s world views and cultural outlook. Adults and parents who don’t want to wait until their golden years to enjoy their time are pulling their kids out of classes for these inspiring and educational adventures. In short, it’s a fancy term for extended vacation as a family, often in various destinations. Though it’s not the easiest trend to undertake, Zurfers makes it actually affordable. Imagine being able to exchange your home and journey to six different countries throughout the globe for a flat rate of $81 per destination!

On the other end of the spectrum, there’s also been a rise in micro trips. For those who can’t be out of the office or away from home for too long, weekend excursions and short getaways are becoming a huge trend. Taking a series of micro trips throughout the year enables travelers to see more destinations, and new offerings and platforms make it easier and more affordable than ever. Improved routes, cheaper tickets, and platforms like Zurfers ensure this trend will continue to boom in 2019 and beyond.
Relive your youth and the childhood joy of group slumber parties with this grown up version of a favorite past time. Whether you’re planning a family reunion or a girls’ weekend getaway, the rise of private home exchanges has made it easier for groups of families and friends to travel together at an affordable price. Instead of having to book costly hotel rooms, groups are able to rent complete villas, apartments, and homes that not only allow them to save money, but also provide them privacy and the convenience of full home amenities, like private pools and fully-stocked kitchens. With so many private residences on Zurfers, travelers can exchange and house the whole group for $81.
