Luxury travel is on the rise among Indians, travel portal Yatra.com said. According to Yatra.com’s winter survey, the propensity of Indians to spend on travel has increased and more than 30 percent respondents were ready to spend above Rs.50,000. “We have seen a number of takers opting for not only domestic but also international destinations for their winter vacations. Indians are holidaying more frequently and that’s a trend that has been on an increase over the past few years,” Yatra.com president Sharat Dhall said in a statement.
Nearly 30 percent respondents were willing to go on an international holiday, for which South East Asian nations emerged as the favourite. Kashmir topped the list among domestic destinations, followed by Goa, Kerala and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. However, 60 percent of the respondents preferred budget hotels under Rs.4,000.
