What is Revenge Travel ?
Since the beginning of this pandemic we came across many new terms like Quarantine, Lockdown fatigue and Revenge travel. Have you ever wondered what exactly is revenge travel?
As soon as the restrictions started to ease, the Indian travel industry witnessed something really strange and unexpected,i.e, the phenomenon of revenge travel : the travel mindset where people are more eager to travel and less willing to cancel their vacation plans after the coronavirus shutdowns.
Such travellers started to feel that they are out of the cage now and tourism saw a sharp incline.
Thousands of people were seen crowding hill stations and other destinations which led to revival of tourism at a much faster pace than expected.
Let’s see how travel agents can benefit from this……..
1. Try selling off-beat destinations
One of the major changes seen in the travel patterns is that tourists who want to satisfy their wanderlust but are concerned about the safety measures prefer some off-beat destinations. Many mesmerizing and less commercialized destinations are coming into the limelight so get deals ready for those destinations. So for instant bookings you can always book your packages through TravClan.
2. Domestic flights – the real jackpot!
Demand for domestic flights has seen rapid growth and is expected to grow manifold in the coming years. Since the country is still not operating international flights, visitors are taking domestic flights to explore options like Goa and North East. Even big players like Rakesh Jhunjhunwala are eyeing this sector. You know where to get best deals on domestic flights – visit us at https://travclan.page.link/flights
3. Staycation and Workation – the latest fad!
Work from home culture also gave rise to workation and staycation trips where working people tend to stay in properties equipped with facilities like fast internet connectivity so as to both work and relax at the same time. Destinations like Pune and Jaipur which are close to metropolitans like Mumbai and Delhi are the most popular ones.

Things agents need to be aware of ………….
1. Ever changing rules and regulations
Health officials fear the third wave hitting soon. Although the restrictions have started to ease, the government is focused on opening travel in a phased manner and hence new notifications keep coming out daily. Keep a track of restrictions in each state on daily basis. For detailed information please visit the news section at TravClan’s official website and mobile app.
2. Covid Protocol
If you want your customers to come back to you again and again you need to make sure they are safe and healthy. Gestures like giving free masks, face shield and hand sanitizers on bookings and making them aware of other Covid-19 protocols before travel will make you stand out.
The confidence to travel shows a positive sign for the industry and the future is surely bright. However in future hygiene is going to become a crucial factor and has to receive utmost importance. Superb marketing efforts and delivering unique experiences in a safe manner is the new ideal way to win bookings.
Keep these few things in mind and you are good to go.
