Vacationing with a guilty conscience: is cruising the travel industry’s SUV?

Many define themselves through their vacation in the south and their cosmopolitanism thanks to long-distance travel. But in times of “flight shame”, the well-deserved vacation comes under pressure. Is travel shame a trend? Immediately after getting up she went splashing in the sea and then had breakfast at the pool. This was recently written by Youtuber Bianca “Bibi” Claßen (“Bibis Beauty Palace”) in the Maldives, about 8,000 kilometers away from Germany. It is probably a question of type, whether one grabs comforting patronage with such an Instagram post or whether it is foreign shame, even transferred flight shame . In any case, many now look at such vacation postings differently than they did two years ago. The travel shame is going on. But has a new era actually started and is the bad conscience on the rise? Are flying, long-distance travel and cruises becoming something to justify – instead of something to brag about? Quite a few report at least conversations and situations in which CO2 is suddenly an issue where it would not have been before. “There is a change in values” The vacation researcher and consumer psychologist Martin Lohmann has not yet found any general travel shame, but rather greater flight shame. In Kiel, as head of the Institute for Tourism Research in Northern Europe (NIT), he is responsible for the annual “travel analysis” of the Association for Holidays and Travel Research (FUR). Accordingly, most recently – in November – almost three quarters (73 percent) of air travelers said they had a more or less guilty conscience because of the pollution of the climate and greenhouse gas emissions. 27 percent did not share this feeling. “Apparently there is a” change in values ​​”here,” says Lohmann. “Flight shame is the expression of an inner conflict, not its solution: on the one hand you want to travel, but on the other hand you don’t want to influence the climate”, says the psychologist, who is professor of business psychology at the Lüneburg University. FOLLOW ME Is the kerosene tax a climate saver – or pure populism? ” We are currently researching how people deal with this conflict . Not talking about it would be a temporary option, on the other hand, traveling is a great topic of conversation, so a new conflict.” According to the researcher, the travel plans for 2020 are not expected to drop significantly in the short term, in spite of the widespread flight shame. There is, however, a greater willingness to pay compensation for the associated CO2 emissions, says Lohmann. Cruise shaming trend The Hamburg Youtuber and cruise expert Matthias Morr also observed a changed culture of conversation in view of the ongoing climate discussion and the Friday demos: “A cruise is something that you could brag about in the past. I have heard from many that they now prefer not to tell when they go on cruises so as not to be denounced for it. “ TO THE SURVEY Will you change your travel behavior this year?  The cruise ship is “quasi the SUV of the travel industry “. Such a huge ship is a strong symbol for many things that the Fridays for Future movement denounces. Shipping companies are not in a favorable situation right now, says Morr. New ships have been ordered – and turning the anti-mood around is a huge challenge. “Many shipping companies have also recognized this problem – ships either run much cleaner with liquefied natural gas or the provider compensates for the CO2 emissions.” Morr also observed a kind of defiance in the population: “I also experience a” now more than ever “with many – according to the motto:” I don’t want to restrict myself personally now, while in other countries or industries everything continues as usual “. ” There are a lot of people, including many big city singles, who don’t have a car but who invest a lot of money in travel. “For many, this is an essential part of their lifestyle and I think that many will not want to do without it.” Gaining prestige through travel Post-materialism was proclaimed for a long time – the motto that it is better to invest in experiences than in things. “If traveling is frowned upon now, what can you still spend money on with a clear conscience?” Traveling sustainably – is that even possible? We have ten tips for you Travel researcher Lohmann sees all of this as less of a problem and he also sees no end to tourism. “Travel has a number of positive aspects: relaxation, experience, learning, happiness.” They bring experiences that talking about is a proven social exchange. “I do not consider it a disadvantage that you now have to justify possible climate-damaging effects of your travel to yourself and others,” says Lohmann. “A little more prudence when planning tourist activities can’t do any harm.”  From the point of view of the business psychologist, gaining prestige through travel has so far been a side effect. In fact, “experienced people” have always been valued. “But this aspect is not lost if you pay attention to the climate when traveling.”

When the vacation paradise turns to hell: Couple is “trapped” in the corona crisis in the Maldives

A newly wed wedding couple wants to fly home from their honeymoon in Mexico in mid-March – and ends up in the Maldives after an odyssey due to the corona pandemic. Since then it has been waiting desperately to be able to go home. A walk on the light sand on the beach, souvenir photos under palm trees, a fruit cocktail while your feet dangle in the warm water. Stranded on an island in the Indian Ocean , open-ended. What sounds like a dream is now an unbearable situation for Peri and Chalid. “It’s getting harder and harder,” says Peri. Wedding with friends and family in Egypt, honeymoon in Mexico, then back to everyday life in Dubai – that was the couple’s plan in early March. “When we left, Corona wasn’t too big a deal,” says Chalid.  From Istanbul there was only one option: the Maldives The departure from Cancun in Mexico on March 19 is still going smoothly. But on the plane, the couple received messages from friends: “How do you want to get back to Dubai?” The UAE Ministry of the Interior has announced an entry ban for foreigners with permanent residence in the Emirates.  “We only really understood the extent of the problem after our stopover in Istanbul ,” says 36-year-old Chalid, who works as a telecommunications engineer in the state on the Arabian Peninsula. He and his wife Peri (35) are on the phone with friends, UAE authorities and the Egyptian embassy. “Please be patient,” they say. If you try to take the connecting flight, you will be rejected and your boarding passes will be withdrawn.  Chalid and Peri are stuck at Istanbul Airport. One more day. No information about when to continue, no luggage. “The situation was very chaotic,” says Chalid. Without a boarding pass, the couple cannot even go shopping in the airport shops.  Nine passengers on the plane to the Maldives Because flights to Egypt are also suspended, Chalid and Peri need a replacement plan. Which destinations are still served? And which of them are possible with an Egyptian ID? The only solution after staying for days and doing research at the airport: the Maldives . “We didn’t even think about it,” says Chalid on the phone. “We just wanted to finally have a bed and our belongings again – and a shower.” Nine of them are sitting in the huge plane that she will fly to the archipelago in the Indian Ocean in mid-March. They have been stranded there for more than two months. “Nobody takes you seriously when you complain about a never-ending stay in the Maldives,” says Chalid. But what may seem like a dream to some actually has little to do with a second honeymoon: In response to the first proven corona infections in the capital Malé in mid-April, the authorities ordered a curfew for the region. Ship traffic between the islands is prohibited, hotels are not allowed to accept guests. It can be assumed that most of the resorts would be closed when the last guests left them, writes the Foreign Office. 14 rooms in six different hotels “The last guests” – this includes Peri and Chalid. One hotel after the next closes. The couple keeps a tally: since the beginning of March they have unpacked and packed their suitcases in more than 14 rooms in at least six different hotels. “We are warmly welcomed in every hotel before it closes shortly afterwards,” says Chalid. Every morning the reception calls and asks: “When are you leaving?” But leaving the Maldives is virtually impossible at the moment. Commercial flights from Malé International Airport have been temporarily suspended. “And even if there were flights … we wouldn’t come home,” interjects Peri. They are brought from island to island with small seaplanes or boats when changing hotels. Every transport has to be paid for. The credit card will also be charged with costs for exclusive rooms. The couple, who have been together for eight years, have saved money for life together. But the savings are now gone, the fear of the growing mountain of debt meanwhile “greater than all Covid worries”, as Peri says. The nightmare could be over by June 1st The two recently moved into an isolated “emergency shelter”. The holiday complex on the island of Manadhoo offers “luxurious villas in turquoise water”. The Marketing Director and her husband work here as well as possible. If necessary at the computer in the reception. Because jobs are rare in honeymoon hotels.  From June 1st, foreigners with a residence permit should be able to re-enter Dubai with a special permit. Until you have this you cannot book a ticket. “We don’t regret flying here. It was the best we could do in the situation,” says Chalid. “But we want to go home.”

A desk on the beach: Resort in the Maldives offers home office in paradise

Combining work and vacation – this is what a luxury resort in the Maldives wants to make possible. What sounds like paradise for office workers in the home office is a chance for survival for the tourism industry. Some are plunging the coronavirus pandemic into crisis, others see it as an opportunity. The Maldives are suffering from the fact that many people are foregoing long-distance travel to the Indian Ocean this year – entry for Germans has only been possible again since July 15 – but the small state is wooing people who want to do their work from there . The arguments are convincing: great weather, fantastic beaches – and now there is also a special offer from a resort. The luxury resort “The Nautilus Maldives” would like to attract all those who work in the home office during the pandemic and maybe even beyond. Work and vacation can be combined there : Anyone who can do their work digitally from anywhere in the world can do it just as well on the beach. The so-called “Workation Package” includes up to 21 days on which you can work from the Maldives. Maldives: Working in the Indian Ocean You do your job in a luxurious environment – on a private island in the middle of the picturesque Baa Atoll, with a view of the ocean . According to the provider, the offer includes daily yoga lessons, meditation sessions and fitness courses, and those who want can also look out for dolphins on a luxury yacht. All of this after work, of course. During working hours you sit at a desk on the beach in the shade – your colleagues are guaranteed to be jealous during the video call. And technically, everything a well-equipped office needs should be available, from the telephone to the printer, assure the operators of the resort. A negative Covid-19 test is required to enter the Maldives – the staff will take care of all other formalities, the offer promises. Those interested, however, must have earned good money in the Maldives before they start working. The package costs for two people $ 23,250 for seven nights, $ 27,850 for 14 nights and $ 52,000 for three weeks, reports CNN . Island states fight for tourists The resort has been open again since September 1st. In countries like the Maldives, which are economically extremely dependent on tourism, creativity is now required so that income does not collapse completely during the ongoing pandemic. However, some holiday countries have discovered mobile working as an opportunity: The government of Barbados is already offering a special one-year visa for people who want to work and live on the Caribbean island.

Italian village offers free holidays – thousands of guests want to come

Enjoy “La dolce vita” – completely free of charge. The Italian village of San Giovanni in Galdo is currently advertising this. The problem: there are already far too many applicants for the one week free vacation. The village of San Giovanni in the Molise region in southern Italy wanted to attract tourists. The small town offered a total of 40 holiday accommodations – free of charge for one week each. The only condition in the online advertisement of the local cultural association Amici del Morrutto : Provide as creative a reason as possible why you would like to go on holiday in San Giovanni. The offer (only overnight stays, meals not included) has been in effect since July 4th and runs until October 3rd. According to the organizers, three houses will be provided for this, each with two, three or four beds. No mass tourism: free holidays in San Giovanni If you long for peace and relaxation far from mass tourism, this is the right place for you. San Giovanni in Galdo has just 500 inhabitants, the next larger town is Campobasso. Naples is about two hours away by car, Rome three. Thousands of requests However , if you still want to apply now, you should hurry: According to the ” Travelbook “, a total of 8,000 inquiries have already been received (as of August 21). However, the village can accommodate a maximum of 12 guests per week. Italy is trying to get back on its feet after the Corona crisis . Another offer attracted attention in June. The village of Cinquefrondi in southern Italy had offered vacant houses for a purchase price of just one euro – on one condition .

Vacation in Corona times – where to go during the autumn vacation?

As soon as the main travel season is over, the autumn holidays are already on in some federal states. But if you want to travel, you should inform yourself well. An overview shows what needs to be considered with increasing numbers of infections and entry regulations. Laze on the beach in the autumn sun or go hiking in the Alps: the planning for the autumn vacation has long since started. There are only four weeks left until the first federal states start their vacation on October 5, with Hamburg, Hesse, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Schleswig-Holstein. The rest will follow by the end of October. But what is even possible on vacation? While the corona situation in Germany is comparatively relaxed, some European holiday countries are arming themselves with new rules and requirements in view of the increasing number of infections. An overview of which travel destinations are in demand and what needs to be considered in the countries: Destinations in Germany are in demand Despite Corona, Spain is in demand as a travel destination. “There are still a lot of bookings,” says the world’s largest travel company Tui in Hanover. The Canaries should also be reopened soon. Greece is also currently popular, with a focus on Crete, Corfu and Rhodes. In addition, the tourism experts hope that many customers will also book last-minute vacations. Destinations in autumn 2020: going there or not? However, Tui recorded the greatest increase in autumn for trips within Germany . “Many people have booked hiking or sports holidays at home – or skipped summer and went straight into autumn.” Beware of risk areas If you want to go abroad, you should take a look at an online list from the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) before leaving. There it is constantly updated which countries are considered risk areas for German holidaymakers – with a corresponding quarantine obligation on return. “A country is no longer classified as a risk area if there is a stable epidemiological trend below the mark of 50 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants per week,” explains the Ministry of Health. In addition to the sheer number, other factors are included, which are evaluated together with the Ministry of the Interior and the Foreign Ministry: for example the type and extent of outbreaks and crisis measures to contain corona, such as tests.
