By the year 2040, international travel will have become a faster, easier and more ecologically sustainable activity than ever before and will also deliver a far richer traveller experience. It’s predicted that airline passenger numbers will double by that time and facial pattern recognition systems will mean our faces will become our passports and boarding passes, while virtual travel experiences, hotel rooms and museums will be commonplace. That’s according to a new report commissioned by Allianz Partners to help them prepare for the travel-related needs of their customers in the future. Allianz Partners is a world leader in B2B2C assistance and insurance solutions, delivering global protection and care, and offers dedicated travel insurance services through the Allianz Travel brand. 

‘The Future Travel Experience’ was launched today as part of ‘The World in 2040’ futurology series. Authored by internationally renowned futurologist, Ray Hammond, it presents likely future developments and trends that will impact international travel and the traveller experience over the next 20 years.
