Indian travellers are opting for “bleisure” as the workcation trend is on the rise

 Wednesday, July 28, 2021 


India is home to some of the most majestic works of architecture (think Taj Mahal), and with charming, quaint hillsides and exotic beaches, it’s no wonder Indian travelers are rejoicing in hybrid work. Amadeus, the world’s leading travel technology company has released its latest Travel Trends, detailing four key trends that are shaping up travel.

Indian travelers are embracing the workcation, one of the key trends that offers city dwellers a chance for remote working whilst holidaying. The report identifies two key findings:

  1. This year Indian travellers are searching for their destination just one day before departure
  2. These travellers are searching for long-term stays with a duration of 14 to 30 days and sometimes more

Both of these in contrast to 2019, where travelers were searching much more in advance of their trip and were averaging a total of eight days total for their trip.

Mani Ganeshan, Head of R&D, Asia Pacific, Amadeus says, “In 2021, we can see that Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru are still the most searched destinations in India, the same as 2019. This suggests that Indian travellers are looking to explore closer to home, albeit cautiously as the pandemic is still widespread. However, in 2021, the travellers’ duration of stay is lengthening which tells us the desire to travel never falters, and that travellers are creatively making the most out of their travel and taking advantage of the new  hybrid working model we are seeing unfold.”

Amadeus also explores three other emerging Travel Trends around the world:
