August 20, 2017: India’s famous online travel portal Yatra had recently conducted a survey which received 1500 responded from different parts of the country.

The survey was an extensive questionnaire that shows that there has been a changing pattern. The rainy season, which was once an obstruction, is now the favored season for traveling according to many Indians.

47.2% of the responses favored one to five days of getaway, when it comes to the duration of the travel. Close enough, 45.2% were alright with 5-15 days. But longer holidays of more than 15 days was preferred by only 6.9% of the respondents. Thus, short plans are most suited for the Indians.

When it comes to the most popular destinations for travel, Munnar, Goa, the northeast states and Andaman islands were top spots. While 47.1% of the responses wished hill stations as their favored spot, 31.4% wanted the beach to be included in their plans. 72.8% of the people want to travel within India.

But it is the luxury segment of travel that has taken a back seat, partly due to the GST hikes in various places. 18% of the responses would have the budget of about Rs. 50,000 while 17% would want to spend less than Rs. 10,000.

A hotel accommodation worth Rs. 2,500-5,000 was most preferred by 43.5% where as 12.3% considered rooms between Rs. 5,000-7,500.

Finally, it was also noted that paying out the travel expenses through credit cards was favored by 62.2% of the responses in contrast to 16.7% who use debit cards and 9.6% who would turn to cash.
