Indians prefer short holiday breaks to one long annual vacation – Xinhua | English.news.cn

MUMBAI, Feb. 10 (Xinhua) — Over 66 percent of Indian travelers led by millennials are increasingly opting for small size holiday breaks instead of just one annual vacation, according to travel trend analysis shared by a travel company Monday.

“Over the past few years we have witnessed a dramatic shift in the lifestyle choices of Indian consumers – the aspiration for travel increasing manifold. And with multiple, bite-sized holidays seeing strong demand, we realised the importance of value pricing,” said Rajeev Kale, President Country Head of travel company Thomas Cook (India) Ltd, with annual revenues of 942 million US dollars.

To address this opportunity, Thomas Cook has launched an all-inclusive holiday package between 5-7 days at 701-1,402 US dollars to a wide range of top international destinations.

These destinations include Australia, Britain, France, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Russia, Netherlands and Belgium along with equally short-haul favourites of Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Maldives, Mauritius and Myanmar.

The all-inclusive tours include flights, hotels, visas, transfers, meals, sightseeing, insurance and the services of an experienced tour manager. It has also designed customized Europe “land-only” holidays, to give customers the flexibility of selecting their preferred airlines, and at great value pricing starting at 443 US dollars.
