Wego travel search site has shared the company’s top five most popular searches for 2014 as well as their regional market observations of travel trends during 2014, and key predictions for 2015. Wego’s large number of business travel users in India have placed Delhi and Mumbai in the top domestic travel destinations this year, while Goa, continues as a favourite amongst holiday travellers with all our top five domestic hotels located in the popular beachside city.
Jackson Fernandez, managing director, Wego India, said, “Southeast Asian cities again top our most popular international destination list, with Dubai climbing strongly to the number two spot.”
New domestic airlines, expansion of route services and attractive discounts will continue to add a zing to this sector, while improvements in infrastructure will help the domestic travel market grow with travellers seeking out new serviced destinations. Inbound tourism will take a leap forward with the recent introduction of visa on arrival extended to 43 countries.
Currently an undersupply of around 150,000 hotel rooms in India, especially in the budget segment, should see a growth in these types of properties in 2015. Outbound travel will continue to also grow in the upcoming year, supported by the burgeoning and affluent middle class.
