Look for these travel trends in the coming year
1. Eco-Benefits

Resorts will begin to offer "eco-discounts" for guests who book rooms outfitted with low-flow toilets and showerheads, compact fluorescent lighting, and other energy-saving devices.

2. Sustainable Airports

In 2008 Indianapolis opened a $1.1 billion international airport with electric runway vehicles and a massive sunroof to maximize natural light. Expect more eco-minded hubs to follow.

3. Green Cities

Metropolitan hotels like New York’s Grand Hyatt will set the benchmark for environmental best practices with organic banquet menus, nontoxic cleaning products, in-room coffee bar utensils made from potato starch, and more.

4. Better Business

More travel industry heavyweights—including British Airways, Hilton Hotels, and Royal Caribbean Cruises—will commit to large-scale carbon emissions reduction.
