After experiencing several months of challenges induced by covid, Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) is expecting that the trend of ‘revenge tourism’ will raise its revenue. By August-end, it has plans to introduce 25 tour packages wherein they’ll offer to take people from the tech capital to different destinations in and outside the state.
Chitradurga, Mysuru, Nandi Hills/Bhoga Nandeeshwara Temple, Gol Gumbaz, Hampi, Dharmasthala, Kukke Subramanya, Tungabhadra Dam, Puducherry, Mahabalipuram (Tamil Nadu) and Gandikota (Andhra Pradesh) are few such places that it has plans to cover.
Revenge tourism is described as a method to pent-up travel demand after the Covid-19 lockdown.
KSRTC on July 23rd introduced a package tour from Bengaluru to Jog Falls via Shivamogga and Sagara on Fridays and Saturdays. There will be a non-AC sleeper bus, charging Rs. 2,200 per ticket for adults and Rs. 2,000 for children. Also, the package includes refreshments, breakfast, lunch and dinner. The fare is Rs 1,900 and Rs 1,700, respectively, on the Rajahamsa bus.
