The travel industry is one of the hardest-hit industries due to the pandemic. According to Statista, the United States alone recorded a tourism revenue loss of roughly $147 billion between January and October 2020. However, with the ease in travel restrictions, there has been a gradual increase in travel as people itch to change their surroundings after being stuck at home for so long.

And these travel creators are not only superstar influencers but also micro-influencers.
