Enthralling month and more to come!

Hi Everyone!

We are just back from an eventful month, January and now in February experiencing creditable activities, interactions and networking with overall travel fraternity in India and abroad. In January 18 to 22, held FITUR in Madrid, Spain, SATTE since February 9 to 11 and OTM in Mumbai, from 2 to 4. Come March 7-9, all roads will lead to ITB Berlin, the world’s leading travel trade show.

After traversing all, I feel time has come to take a glance at some travel trends for the year that would shape the future of travel in India and abroad.

Travel trends surprised one and all in 2022 and 2023 promises to take this inclination forward. The main criteria for travel decisions will revolve around safety. It will be the year of weekend travel and the rise of the conscious, intelligent and passionate traveller. With improved flight routes, local transport and different types of accommodation options, people will be experimenting locations, more environmentally friendly places.

The millennial will discover new places, new experiences, new cuisines and interact with people from diverse cultural backgrounds.

The drift for cruise holidays picked up in 2022, and it will only soar to new stature in 2023. The year 2023 will unknot the joy of bringing far flung families together.

The travel agents informed high demand for large family package tours.

Happy reading till we meet next month!
