(Dive Travel Business News - March 10, 2011) -- According to Thomas Stanley, chief head and chief operating of tour operator Cox & Kings USA, travelers are seeking more value and more unique experiences during their vacations. Here we've outlined some of the top travel trends Stanley cited for 2011.
1. Multi-Destination Vacations
Stanley believes that because clients have become more interested in experiencing multiple cultures, cuisines, etc. during their vacations, multi-destination traveling affords travelers the opportunity to discover exactly what they want from a combination of countries. Instead of visitng one dive destination, dive travelers are looking for combinations that are convenient , offer exceptional diving yet won't break the bank - such as a Saba/Statia dive vacation.
