Love is universal. And so is Wanderlust. Travel transcends all boundaries – irrespective of who you are, where you’re from and what you do, one thing’s for sure – people love to travel. After putting plans on hold for the past two years, people across the world are set to celebrate love on their own terms. This Valentine’s Day, to understand the world’s love for travel, global travel technology platform OYO rolled out the first edition of its global Valentine’s Day consumer index ‘Let Love In With Travel 2022’. This survey covers respondents across India, the UK, the USA, Indonesia, and Germany. From India’s love for Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Old Bollywood songs during road trips, sipping chai during sunrise, OYO’s report reveals interesting tidbits about the world’s love affair with travel. INDIA
A third of the respondents surveyed have already made travel plans to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Out of these, nearly 62% of respondents are looking to treat their loved ones to a quick getaway to a nearby destination. This was followed by a preference for road trips to scenic destinations. On the other hand, those who wanted to keep V-Day a low-key affair want to stay indoors, order food and watch movies. 
Travel is a huge part of bonding with your loved ones, be it a trip to Goa with friends, or heading to Manali with your folks. The world took this for granted until the pandemic pulled the brakes on travel plans. 2 out of 3 respondents said they appreciate vacations with loved ones more today than pre-pandemic days. Indian respondents don’t take their holidays for granted anymore. Nearly 38% said they travel to spend quality time and share meaningful experiences with loved ones. This was followed by 26% who take to traveling for a break from the routine, whereas another 25% said they love exploring new places and cultures. A whopping 84% also believe that travel strengthens their relationships with loved ones. Every year, as the calendar turns to February, idyllic places take center stage in the imaginations of travelers around the world. OYO’s customer survey shows that the majority of respondents in India are looking to spend the day by the beach in Goa, followed by the cozy hillside of Manali. The survey further reveals that experience has become the center stage for all travel plans across the globe.
