Another prominent trend has been the use of instant messaging for booking travel, a practice that has become particularly popular in China, and one that the report has identified as key for the year ahead.
Messaging apps like China's popular WeChat and Japan's LINE now allow companies to manage customer support through their apps, and travel companies are expected to embrace the apps for customer service, bookings and payments, the report said.
Finally, 'selfies', and even 'groufies' have exploded in popularity this year, but 2015 is expected to be the year of the 'braggie' the report revealed.
The 'braggie' is a picture taken and uploaded to social media by a holidaymaker in an attempt to brag about the holidaymaker's exotic surroundings. Typical 'braggies' include a view from the hotel window, the room's bed and the surrounding landscape, the report said.
And many hotels are tapping into this trend by offering customers free perks and rewards if they post their photos on to the hotel's Facebook or Instagram accounts. One such example is hotelier Marriott, for example, which has allowed loyal customers to earn extra perks by checking in to their hotels via social media or uploading pictures.
Other key trends identified in the WTM-Euromonitor report include the rapid expansion of India's online rail bookings market and the use of wearable technology as an important tool for travelers.
The report also identified countries which are attempting to reinvent their image as travel destinations, such as Africa - which is hoping to become a new surfing hotspot, and the Middle East which is re-branding itself as a design hub.
