The Covid-19 pandemic has certainly changed the world and how we live and work, and now there’s a new trend appearing within the world of tourism - that of the half-tourist.
The Guardian described these people as ones who are travelling to a new city or location and spending part of their time working and the other on holiday.
According to the newspaper, the UK government’s advice to work from home whenever possible “could well inspire many more people to adopt a nomadic working life”.
While the news provider was talking about Brits deciding to go overseas to work from home, there’s no reason why the reverse couldn’t also be true, with more people from other countries deciding to come and spend a few months living and working in London during lockdowns.
It also pointed out that a number of nations around the world are already marketing visas at digital nomads, although often with conditions over how much money you have to be earning to qualify.
Given that short breaks are much more challenging in a post-Covid world, many accommodation providers are also exploring their options to cater for longer-term visitors too.
If you decide that visiting the UK longer term is a good idea, you can enlist a chauffeur service in London to help you get around the capital safely and quickly. With a knowledgeable driver, this is also one of the best ways to see the sights.
