HolidayIQ, India’s largest travel community released, HolidayIQ Insights: Sports Tourism: Bowled over in India? reflecting a trend on; travel itinerary around major sport events which has grown in popularity today.
Enclosed is an info-graphic inspired by this trend based on the reviews shared by 12 million travellers from the community.
Hari Nair, Founder and CEO, HolidayIQ says, “Indians are known to be passionate fans when it comes to sports, especially cricket and planning one’s travel itinerary around major sport events has become popular. Travellers and sport enthusiasts travel across the country to watch their favourite stars but they don’t stop there. Once the games are over, they explore the destination as well. On HolidayIQ, there has been a growing interest in experiential holidays in the last 18-24 months. Travellers no longer want to be a mere TV viewer and wish for an experience, not just to experience the electric atmosphere of a stadium but exploring the destination as well. That being said, travelling to get the thrilling taste/experience, is partially a reason for most holidays planned during a sports event.”
