We are in the middle of the peak festive season. With the Ganesh Chaturthi and Durga Puja just over we are heading to the biggest festival in India, Diwali, the “festival of lights”. Being an Indian, you would already know that, Diwali spreads the spirit of the holiday season amongst Indians. When it comes to festival breaks in India, travel has always been occupied a big part. However, now it is being seen that the trend of solely traveling during the festival is gaining much popularity. Though some people want to stay back at home to celebrate Diwali, many also want to take up this opportunity to get away from the maddening crowd and noise during festivals to escape into serenity.
Plan to Travel during Diwali? You need to book early
In case you are planning to travel during the upcoming Diwali, make sure that you book right now in case if you have not managed to do the same. Studies show reveal that most Indians plan their vacations, booking accommodation and flights, well in. They do it immediately once they get a confirmation in regard to leaves from work.
Why booking early is important?
The one important reason why you should book early is that most hotels, to ensure they fill up on inventory, offer early-bird schemes before traditional booking season. Thus it is to be noted that festival travel deals have, in fact, made the season a more economical time to vacation. This is what can give you an additional incentive to choose faraway destinations and opt for overstaying during Diwali.
Another factor that has changed travel trends are the bonuses received at the workplace during the festive time. With bookings done well in advance, the extra money from these bonuses has nurtured a culture of Indians spending more on sightseeing, food, adventure sports, and other holiday activities.
The other factor which has contributed to more people traveling during Diwali time in India is that many receive additional bonuses and funds during this festive season. Thus many prefer to utilize the same towards traveling and availing holidays during this time of the year. In fact, many choose to travel to international destinations during this time of the year. These could include fascinating tourist spots in the Gulf as well.
Statistics reveal to show that the summer holidays are the busiest times amongst Indians for travel. This is closely followed by the Diwali holidays. But you need to realize that Indian summers sometimes become increasingly uncomfortable due to the searing heat. In comparison the festive season during festival seasonal months from October to -November is the best time of the year for planning a tropical beach vacation. In fact by traveling this time of the year means that you can escape from the season hordes, to trade the air and noise pollution for a quiet vacation along the peaceful blue waters of Sea beaches. If you are based in Kolkata if nothing else why not plan a visit to Digha with family and friends to have a thoroughly enjoyable and peaceful time during the upcoming Diwali.
