The New Luxury
Luxury isn’t just the stuff we buy—it’s a mindset.
An estimated 50 million Indian tourists will have to call off their international travel plans this year. And that’s great for the local tourism industry.
The Covid-19 outbreak is expected to make travel within the country more attractive for Indian tourists, experts believe. “The local holiday market will boom this year as the majority of the people feel safer travelling to nearby destinations close to their homes,” said Rajnish Kumar, co-founder and chief technology officer of travel company ixigo.
Besides feeling safe, tourists may also be lured to local destinations given international travel currently comes with complicated quarantine protocols by governments in different countries.
