“We have made significant strides in the holiday packages business over the past two years as we have developed offerings in line with consumer expectations. In the newly launched set, we have attempted to offer the best of both worlds – value deals from hotels and airlines, topped-up with the flexibility to handpick a specific set of activities,” said Jasmeet Singh, Business Head, Holidays & Experiences, MakeMyTrip. “We have observed that travellers are increasingly searching for single-country travel and longer packages vis-a-vis the pre-pandemic period. Therefore, the average duration of a package has been increased from the earlier seven to now nine nights, allowing one to absorb, engage and interact with the local culture, cuisine, and language.”
