What does 2018 have in Store?

At Bigfoot Consulting we are purely Data-driven and the data we have analyzed shows us that following destinations should be on your list to promote if you want to stay ahead in the Game.

Here are our 5 Top Destinations to promote in 2018

Azerbaijan: Azerbaijan is showing an upward trend in the market, Based on data from our clients and Airlines, Azerbaijan is going to be really hot this year from the GCC. The trends show that 3-5 nights packages would trend really well. 3 – 4 Night Packages would be mostly for Baku and the 5 nights would be a combination o Baku and Gabala. There is lots of Sightseeing, some amazing drives, Good Shopping and plenty of Night Life.

Kiev, Ukraine: It was only a matter of time before Ukraine would ease its Visa restrictions for the travelers from the Middle East and  having done so, this year we believe that Kiev, which also happens to be one of the Oldest cities in Eastern Europe dating back to the 5th Century, would get it’s fair share of Business from the Middle East. With lots of Sightseeing, rich cultural Heritage and amazing Night life this Destination is a must have on the list.

Kenya: Last year saw some amazing numbers from the Middle East going to Kenya and this year after its inclusion in the Top 10 trending Cities for 2018 in Trip Advisors list (Read the Article here) we expect Kenya to trend even higher. With Amazing Safari options to suit all pockets and a choice of destinations to visit for every wildlife and Nature lover, amazing connectivity with Middle East, expect the numbers to go up further this year.

France, Austria, Germany, and Switzerland: These have been the best sellers and would continue to be on this list for this year as well. Nothing changes for these destinations. Our Advise try and reach out to your clients before they choose Booking.com

Georgia: Georgia would also stay on this list for this year as well. There is still a lot of demand for this destination as it offers excellent value for Money. The ease of Visa and attractive pricing make this a go-to place for a lot of Indian, Pakistani and Philippino Ex-Pats still.
