After prolonged months of lockdown and restriction of movement, finally, things are looking brighter for the travel lovers. Flights, trains, and buses have started carrying passengers across cities and the whole country. With Airlines offering huge discounts on airfares, now is the best time to travel. To add to this, many travel agencies are offering travel packages at throwaway prices.
If you want to select the best travel packages, you can refer to popular websites like MakeMyTrip, Booking.com and Yatra, who are offering customised travel packages according to the duration and the budget that the traveller has in mind.
The first thing to decide before availing of a travel package is to shortlist some of the destinations that you would like to visit. India being a diverse country you can select from lush green mountains, backwaters of South India, quaint cities embedded among the peaks of the Himalayan mountain range, and bubbly beaches. If you are a nature lover and enjoy the quiet, you can explore the North-Eastern part of India too.
According to your mood, you have the option to visit religious cities, or indulge in adventure games in the Himalayan terrain on just enjoying the simple life of small cities across the country. You can also visit places of archaeological importance if you are a lover of Indian history and culture.
However, you have to consider certain things before finalizing a travel package:
- find out if the to and fro cost is covered in the package
- check the reviews of the hotels that are included in the travel package
- check out the places of importance that are covered under the package
- review the package schedule and make sure that you are willing to stick to it
Finally, get a confirmation from the travel agent to make sure that there are no hidden costs that accompany the purchase of the travel package. In many cases, tax amounts and toll bills do not get included within the package but ultimately end up eating your budget that you would have kept aside as a contingency fund for your travel.
If you are not a stickler to plans, you might also design your travel package. Decide the mode of your travel, thecategory of the hotel that you would like to stay in, the kind of food that you would prefer, and places you would like to visit during your travel.
