Cheap flights to India have made the country accessible to more people, one travel expert has claimed.
The availability of cheap flights to India has made it easier for more people to explore the country, one travel expert has stated.
Simon Calder, travel writer and presenter, commented: “There’s some great opportunities to explore, probably going east so you get the best value. India is very accessible in terms of airfares.”
He noted that the standard backpacker round-the-world trip is no longer obligatory, as cheaper flights allow people to tailor their trips to what they want rather than follow a standard route.
Research published earlier this month by intotheblue.co.uk revealed that 61 per cent of people surveyed intend to travel around the world within the next ten years.
Adventure activities appear to be popular with holidaymakers, the poll found that 53 per cent of respondents want to jump out of a plane, while 34 per cent intend to climb a mountain.
According to TUI, the UK market for adventure travel is estimated at more than 400,000 passengers each year.
