Why Do We Need More Travel Newsletters?

The need for travel-based content is derived from the expanding travel industry. Travel newsletters provide travelers with information on destinations, important travel tips, and upcoming tours. While the travel industry has been consistently growing, travel companies expect growth rates to decline in 2024. On February 14, Reuters reported that the post-pandemic rebound period for the travel industry has begun to normalize. Travel companies expect 2024 to be an extremely busy year as more people set aside budget for vacations and hotels. However, the growth rate in demand is expected to decelerate. Large companies such as Marriot and Hilton are expected to experience single digital growth rates in profits, after double digital increases in 2023.

On February 16, Reuters reported that Thailand is set to waive the visa requirement for more countries. The Thai Prime Minister, Srettha Thavisin, suggested that citizens from more countries will now be able to travel to Thailand without a visa after it waived visas for Chinese and Indian tourists. The step will be taken to boost tourism demand revenue. Between January 1 and 11, Thailand welcomed 4.39 million tourists, a 48% increase from the previous year. The Chinese accounted for most of the tourists. The government foresees an influx of 34 million to 55 million foreign tourists this year, an increase of 28 million compared to the previous year.
