Private Trips: Emerging Travel Trend Amid Pandemic

'Private Journeys' are the new trend in travel

By Puja Gupta

Private trips are an emerging trend, which allows families and friends to enjoy and explore a destination in privacy and safety in a COVID era. Keeping this in mind, Thomas Cook (India) and SOTC Travel announced the launch of a new initiative, Private Journeys, which are chauffeured van tours designed for smaller groups of people.

The facility allows for a leisurely exploration of a destination: its history, culture, cuisine and its hidden secrets!
