Travel enthusiasts have the ideal opportunity to immerse themselves in the lush beauty and tranquilly of nature during the monsoon showers, which give the planet a new lease on life. OYO, a leading provider of hospitality technology, provided some intriguing travel habits as the monsoon sweeps the nation. In comparison to last year, the firm reports a 32% increase in booking demand during the monsoon season.
The increase in travel demand is mostly being driven by vacation spots, reflecting a growing trend among tourists to travel during the wet season. Vacations have traditionally been predominantly linked with the summer, but this development shows a shift in preferences, with people now looking for enjoyable getaways in the midst of the monsoon rains.
This monsoon, mountains are the obvious choice due to a 124% rise in travel demand. This monsoon, Nainital, Mussoorie, Shimla, Lonavala, and Ooty are the top mountain locations that hold tourists’ attention. These locations are in high demand among people looking for a restorative break in the midst of nature due to their quiet landscapes, stunning views, and good weather.
Beach locations also had an increase of 112% from the previous year. Goa and Pondicherry were the most popular beach destinations, followed by Digha, Alibaug, and Kollam, demonstrating a rising trend among travellers to discover unusual locations during monsoon.
During the monsoon, interest in spiritual locations grew as well, with Varanasi, Puri, Tirupati, Amritsar, and Haridwar appearing as the top picks.
Speaking on the patterns in monsoon travel, an OYO spokeswoman said: “It is clear that travellers are embracing the freedom of travelling any time, any day with the increase in bookings for leisure destinations throughout the monsoon season.
