Travel in 2023 and beyond, according to the world’s leading luxury travel insiders
Luxurique was among 3,500 luxury travel trendsetters from 77 countries that gathered at the biggest ever ILTM Cannes, held between the 5th and 8th of December, 2022.
Throughout more than 70 meetings at the Luxurique booth, we had the opportunity to showcase Japan’s significant charms, demonstrate our understanding of high net-worth travellers, and discuss how Covid has changed how people travel.
Less flying, longer stays
HNW travellers showed particular interest in Japan, and those who intended to visit were planning to stay for 10 days to two weeks, a marked increase from pre-Covid years. These longer stays can be attributed to ILTM’s findings that 49 percent of travellers are conscious about travelling less often, but staying for longer. Findings also showed that 50 percent of people also want to make up for lost time (coined Revenge Travel), and 40 percent planned to travel more extravagantly, perhaps due to a renewed appreciation for being able to finally have these experiences again. Extravagance comes at a higher price point, and 57 percent of affluent travellers expected to spend more on holidays than in previous years.
Wellness and experiences
Wellness remained a hot topic at ILTM. A staggering 61 percent of travellers said it was a major driver behind their destination choices. This was supported by the buzz around our wellness itineraries, which can feature onsen hot spring resorts, luxury retreats, Zen Buddhist experiences and authentic, healthful Japanese cuisine.

Luxurique crafts highly individualised itineraries that feature valuable cultural experiences that are beyond the reach of the vast majority of travellers.
