Health and Wellness Travel on the Rise, Outski Ahead of the Curve

Wellness travel is not a new concept, but it is becoming more mainstream. Currently, this segment of the travel industry has grown to $439 billion a year, within the $3.2 trillion global tourism industry. Additionally, this type of travel is expected to grow 10% annually over the next few years. So, what exactly is it?


On the whole, wellness travel is any type of tourism associated with the goal of maintaining or enhancing one's personal well-being. From there, it can be separated into two main types. The first being representative of anyone who lives a healthy lifestyle, and wishes to bring that lifestyle with them on vacation. From finding places to be active (in or outdoors), to healthy eating options.

Another type of wellness travel is specifically geared towards kick-starting or maintaining a healthy lifestyle through the activities planned (such as a weight loss retreat). Wellness vacations are a proactive means of caring for one's health. Whether you're looking to improve yourself mind or body, if you're doing it through travel it is considered a wellness vacation. Wellness travel is just one of the many preventative health measures we take to stay well, and remain productive in our jobs.



That said, it is not healthy, nor does it help de-stress, if the vacationer is getting into debt over their trip. Additionally, research has shown that the largest boost in happiness comes from the simple act of planning a vacation. This is why Outski is such an important piece of this puzzle.
