In the future, there are will be more people opting to spend their holidays in their own country rather than in another country. I completely agree with this point of view because traveling abroad would become unaffordable for more and more people due to inflation and automation.

Inflation has hit its highest level in decades in many countries. Back then, before inflation took off in 2021, the amount of money needed to maintain a given standard of living was lower. Therefore, it wasn’t very hard for an average person to save some money for an international trip. However, now inflation has increased the cost of living to a record high and some economists fear that this might last for a long time. That is to say, in the future, after paying rent or mortgage and buying necessities, many people wouldn’t have money left to travel abroad to enjoy their holiday. They might just travel domestically, which would be way cheaper.

Many people would lose their jobs to robots. So far cheap countries like Thailand and Indonesia haven’t been out of reach even for those who don’t make much money every month. But, sooner or later, humanless technologies, such as driverless cars and Amazon cashierless stores, would mature. By that time, many low-level workers would be made redundant. They might struggle to make a living, let alone fly to another country to enjoy a fancy holiday.

In conclusion, in the future, it will be less common for people to travel abroad on holiday and inflation and humanless technology are to blame.

How to Vary Your Language

Travel abroad
  • Fly to another country
  • International trips
  • Travel overseas (Only use it when appropriate. The problem with ‘overseas’ is that it implies that one has to cross an ocean/sea to get to the other country, which is often not the case.)

  1. In years to come, many persons will decide to spend their holiday in their nation rather than traveling to foreign land. This essay totally agree with this view as this can be attributed to the high cost of traveling and globalization.

    The ever increasing cost of holidaying abroad will cause people to stay in their home country in the future rather than traveling. The BBC lifestyle recent documentary analysed the rising expences of touring some places especially Maldives with predictions of price skyrocketing in the future. Therefore, many will not be able to afford the luxury of such trips as holidaymakers have made it increasingly difficult for both the middle class and the poor thus only the elites can comfortably manage such trips.

    Furthermore, the decision to stay back at one’s own state during the holidays in the coming years can be due to the fact that the world is becoming a global village. This is as a result of the strides and advances in science and technology. Consequently, one can view tourist places such as game reserves, museums, zoos et cetera in different places on television and social media platforms. For example, my class planned a visit to Beverly hills last Christmas, however, the plan was truncated upon discovery of the Inside Beverly hills series on DSTV.

    In conclusion, more people will make the choice of remaining in their home country than traveling to other nations for holidays in the coming years because of high trip expenditure and globalization, hence, the essay’s agreement with this view.
