SOTC Travel observers a surge in demand for Romantic Holidays

From important anniversaries to special occasions such as weddings and personal achievements, holidays have given travellers the chance to celebrate the important milestones in life. With stringent restrictions on social gatherings limiting wedding celebrations this year, couples are looking at investing their savings towards a memorable honeymoon. These are mostly new-age couples who would have rescheduled, rerouted or cancelled their honeymoon plans due to the lockdown.

With countries emerging from lockdown and with the lifting of travel restrictions, there has been an interest among couples to choose a safe destination for their romantic escapes. To meet the demand of couples longing to travel to a lesser known corner of the world, SOTC Travel has introduced ‘Romantic Holidays’. These carefully co-curated holidays offer experiential stays, wellness and outdoor nature breaks across India and international destinations closer to home.

Speaking on the launch, Daniel Dsouza, President & Country Head, Leisure, SOTC Travel said, “We are witnessing a growing trend for ‘special occasion’ travel. Customers have started booking again to celebrate their milestone anniversaries, birthdays and special occasions in life and they see these events as an ideal opportunity to spend quality time with their loved one. There has been an increased interest from couples for short romantic getaways to short-haul destinations closer to home. Their top priority is a safe destination with the flexibility to help them book without any worry. In adapting to changing consumer preferences and safety guidelines, we have included our “Assured” Safe Travel Program in association with Apollo Clinics in our Romantic Breaks packages. These packages offer customers a wide range of romantic experiences with special inclusions to make their holiday truly memorable as they reconnect with their loved ones.”
