If the Diwali holiday demand is any indication, the good days are back for the Indian travel sector

As I write this from my workation, dozens of families around me are revelling in their vacation, seemingly having put the trials of Covid behind them — and for many of them, it’s their first holiday in nearly two years.  If this mini Diwali holiday is any indication, the good days are back for the Indian travel industry, amid a recovery phase in late 2021.

Or at least, it’s the first signs of a big enough recovery for travel tech companies and startups in India, enough to look beyond the slowdown of the past two years.

In the first half of the year, it wasn’t quite clear how the travel sector’s recovery would pan out. Many had cautioned about too much optimism due to the fact that the so-called third wave of Covid had yet to hit India. As it turned out, according to many in the industry, that was indeed the third wave, and since then things have been looking up.

The prospects for the market have been positive ever since domestic bookings bounced back in July this year, and now, startups are positively bullish about travellers coming in by the hordes.
