Roop Pratap Choudhary, Managing Director of Noor Mahal, an award-winning luxurious Palace Hotel Brand, said, “People are now preferring staycations over long holidays and short distance tours over long journeys. Travelers of the new informed world are keen to take smaller journeys and discovering wonderful experiences closer to home especially with the positive and safe environment created with the news of the Covid-19 vaccination rollout. Be it bag packers, corporate groups, families, or friends, people are preferring to drive down to their nearby getaways for short and relaxed staycations. In our recent survey, surprisingly 59 percent of respondents preferred short driveable holidays over long distant holidays.”

As many as 69 percent of respondents mentioned sustainability as one of their top priorities before hitting any domestic travel destination. About 49 percent of respondents gave special attention to offbeat destinations so as to avoid the travel rush to popular destinations. While 32 percent were in favor of community support to help local tourism recover amid the pandemic. A highly trained staff on hygiene and safety protocols, more personalized experiences, and automation for comfort topped the survey chart of service standard expectations from hotels and resorts.
