The availability of remote work has increased dramatically in recent years, giving teleworkers the ability to circumvent travel standards. Remote work has blurred the line between business travel and personal travel, giving workers the option to extend their trips to fly on cheaper days. Long-term stays of 28 days or more in vacation rentals are growing in popularity. For some remote workers, it seems vacations are no longer necessary (since they can travel all the time). For others, working remotely — even in a new place — still doesn’t scratch the travel itch. It seems remote workers have changed the travel landscape, perhaps for good.
While some workers are returning to the office this year, many others are continuing to work remotely indefinitely. This seismic upheaval has changed where people live and work and, increasingly, how they travel.
