As per data provided by Booking.com, Indians are more eager to travel to domestic destinations like Delhi and Mumbai despite the two regions being heavily impacted by the coronavirus. This data was gathered based on wish-lists created by users, and it was found that around 67  per cent had Indian destinations on their wish-list. By comparison, the data from the same period last year showed that 48 per cent had Indian destinations on their list. Booking added that this was measured based on the number of “hearts” or “likes” that people gave to a property.

Among the top properties liked by users, most are in regions like Mumbai, Goa, New Delhi, Lonavala, and Bengaluru. International destinations that travelers have liked include properties in Dubai, Bali, Bangkok, Istanbul, London, Seminyak, North Male Atoll, and Singapore. Among global travelers, destinations like New Delhi, Mumbai, Calangute (Goa), Jaipur, and Bengaluru were said to be popular.

Ritu Mehrotra, Country Manager, India, Sri Lanka, and the Maldives at Booking.com, said - “These are unprecedented and challenging times in which safety remains the top priority. We also know that in such times, dreaming about experiencing the world again has immense power to fire our imaginations and keep spirits high. It’s amazing to see the array of different travel experiences our customers have been busy dreaming about while they wait for the opportunity to travel again.”

Although it is unlikely that most of these users would willingly travel to a coronavirus hotspot, it shows the eagerness of the people to finally experience travel again. While some states in India have begun buses and other forms of transport, hotspots are not taking this step as of yet. Unfortunately, it may be a while yet before we can travel to our favorite locations amidst the global pandemic.
