Longing for long hauls
For Indian travellers, there is no such peak season to travel outside the country. While most of the international travel, especially with families, happen in the summer months, Indians also travel on long weekends and festivals to Southeast Asian countries for short haul travel. However, with increasing disposable incomes, not only do they want to explore new destinations, Indian travellers club extend the long weekends to week long trips to long haul destinations. With affordable fares and hotel rates in the months between August-October, they choose to travel to destinations like Eastern Europe and South Africa for a week. This way they also avoid the Indian operators are rejoicing for having the entire year as travel time for Indians and hence are coming up with deals and offers for every season. The same goes for OTAs as well. After last year’s tryst with the introduction of GST, this year looks good for business for the outbound industry. And we hope that it continues this way. Happy travelling!
