“Growth in outbound travel is directly linked to economic growth. Indians are creative people, and this has fueled tremendous growth over the last few years. More Indians can now afford to travel abroad.”
– Andrea Schneider, Director of Marketing and Market Manager for India at Tourism Interlaken
India’s Ministry of Tourism reported a 7.3% growth in international departures in 2016, with a total of 21.9 million travellers leaving India to explore the world. The UNWTO expects this number to grow to 50 million in the next three years, making the Indian travel market a crucial segment for destinations and experience providers to consider.
