American Express Travel: Where To Getaway In 2014

American Express Travel recently surveyed a panel of experts – nearly 200 of its Travel Counselors – on top destinations and travel trends they are seeing from their customers for 2014. According to the findings, heading abroad will be popular: 52% of the Travel Counselors surveyed indicated travelers are planning international getaways, and 45% of respondents reported many jetsetters are planning both domestic and international trips next year.

“Travel tends to make the list of New Year resolutions. For those who are looking to get away in 2014, we wanted to ask our Travel Counselors what they are seeing as the latest travel trends and share them to help inspire inclined jetsetters,” says Claire Bennett, executive vice president of American Express Travel. “In 2014, we are seeing that some travelers will want to re-explore tried and true favorites and others are looking into more unchartered waters for a new adventure.”

Places To Be Seen in 2014:

As a part of the survey, American Express Travel Counselors were asked to share their insights on popular destinations they are seeing for travelers in the New Year. From royal honeymoon hotspots to hosts of world-class sporting events, the survey says next year’s list includes:

• Brazil

• Croatia

• Vietnam

• Bhutan

• Alaska

• Norway

• Grenada
