Plan New Year Trips In India 1
plan a new year trip in India at a time when nobody else is planning
Search for a room or a flight ticket on the internet for Tuesday 3rd of January and you will find some expensive deals.
Change your mind and now search for 7th or 12th of Jan and you will be shocked to see that prices are down.
In fact, they have already reached a rock bottom level. As the month will progress, they will go even down with each day.
Reservations are available in Rails after the 5th of this month and if you are planning to travel by Shatabdi, Rajdhani or Duranto then a last minute ticket or a Tatkal ticket can win you a rebate of 10%.
Aurangabad of Maharashtra, which is famous for the caves of Ajanta and Ellora has lost its peak season completely because of demonetization.
During the last two months of a previous year (2016) 35% to 45% of the hotel rooms remained empty. [highlight]According to the local tourism bodies things are not going to improve during coming 40 days and room rentals and other rentals can further go down by 50% to 60% as the season for exams will catch up. [/highlight]
Private tour operators in Madhya Pradesh are upbeat because of the winter season. It is expected that during the month of January and February pink winters can roll the carpets for honeymoon couples.
Most of them are designing special New Year packages. [highlight]Mind you! It is a “Real New Year package” for 2017, where they will slash down the rates for accommodation and other services by 20% to 30% flat.[/highlight] It can go down even further when you might be reading this blog.
Never forget the land of “Kamasutra” Khajuraho is a hot favorite among the foreign tourists. This year, they have a dull season and planning to come up with some discounted rates.
Now Indian tourist can also plan an “erotic gateway” amidst the pink winters and avail international standard amenities to live some exotic fantasies in the land where they worship love in its most sacred form.
Madhya Pradesh State Tourism Development Corporation (MPSTCD) is offering free camps to all the visitors when they are visiting places like Panchmari or Orchha etc.[highlight]MPSTCD launched its camps in 2013; tents are very expensive when you hire them during the peak seasons. However, right now you can avail them free as a part of the main package[/highlight].
While New Year fever was on, these tents were short in supply, however, now they are available as a promotional package. You might have seen these hiking tents in various movies.
Take my words, they have this power to transport you into a new orbit altogether, provided you a right companion or a group of companions with you.
Search out for a hotel room in the oldest Ski Resort of India, which is Narkanda, MakeMyTrip is giving you a rebate of almost 60% on room tariffs.
Here I would also like to add that the weather forecast of Narkanda suggests that coming 15 days are sunny and good for the skiing adventure.[highlight]When you will visit Narkanda there are full chances that you will get a ski equipment package dirt cheap because it is an off season for them and demonetization has already left them gasping for money.[/highlight]
Now they want full houses and do not mind while cutting down the gate money. What they were selling during in 2016 was more of a beating retreat package. Now they are actually selling the Real New Year packages.
Five facts to cover five different moods of Indian tourism industry[highlight]I can produce numerous numbers of deals, where your dream destinations are selling it at dirt-cheap.[/highlight] Think about a destination in Maharashtra; think about a destination 60 kms ahead of Shimla.
Think about a destination in the heart of India, it is just the same everywhere, in fact, while writing this blog, I am also stationed in a resort in Pachmari and continue my journey towards Karnataka.
In the year 2017, they are planning to develop wildlife tourism in Karnataka and I am getting this opportunity to explore the wilder side of yours truly.
So if you have this special interest in Karnataka and you have not made a New Year resolution of staying away from the alcohol, then nightclubs and pubs of Bangalore are waiting for you on this weekend with long happy hours.
It can be an additional treat for you if you are still craving for some more party hang up.
Grab the “Real New Year packages” in 2017
Weather remains the same, the decoration remains the same, and the destination remains the same. [highlight]What really comes down is the price of your trip. What really comes down is the number of visitors or trouble creators.[/highlight]
If you really wish to welcome 2017 in style than the right now. Allow me to share a before and after postcard of this skiing resort Narkanda with you.
Apart from Skiing Narkanda is very famous for its wilderness and an apple garden inside the valley. It has all the qualities to become a love nest for the “lost in themselves couples” snow capped Ski field and quite apple gardens wait for them throughout the year.
Cozy necessities will replace themselves with unwanted pushes. The dust and the mud-clad boots over the sheets and blankets of ice will become off-putting for you.
Now avail a real New Year package and things will become different. You will find that the privacy and wild of the place is intact and this time you are not paying a bomb for it.
Now you can enjoy the wilderness of the place and search for some forbidden fruits to become an integral part of nature all over again. Less human faces around you naturally bring you closer to your carnal instincts and this is what Narkanda is all about.
This same formula is applicable on every other destination, which is crossing your dreams and generating wanderlust; “The real New Year” is the right time to visit a place or a tourist attraction, off-season tourism eases out a fair deal of stress from you.
From unruly faces to unruly prices, it is the same with the prices of accommodation and other services an unruly pricing regime takes over, New Year eves are the time of year when you end up paying in an unruly fashion.[highlight]Off season tours or Real new year, packages win the same thing for me and it is my sincere advice to plan trips at a time when nobody else is planning them. [/highlight]
The real new year deals (deals that you can avail in the coming two months of 2017) removes this term unruly from the game completely.
Hunting for a deal in January and February of 2017 then rework on your bargaining skills
We are heading towards a cashless society; we are not heading towards a bargaining less society.
Think about the time bomb ticking on the heads of service providers. I started this blog with a fact that the tourism industry in Aurangabad is slashing down its prices, why they are doing it.
They are doing it because a time bomb is ticking, if your hotel room is empty on 14th of January then it is irreversible, it is a cent percent loss.
The date of 14 January 2017 will never come back to any calendar. If the productivity of a room or a cab is zero on that date, then it will always remain a big zero.
On the other hand, if it is fetching the 30% or 40% of the price then it is a clear-cut gain for the service provider.
When you bargain for any property never, forget this simple principle. This year supply is certainly exceeding demand and this is why you have fair chances to grab some amazing deals.
The deals that they are showing on the face value can be bargained further during this real New Year bargain. Be ready to play this eye staring match with service providers and I am sure that the numbers are favoring you this time.
Bust, recession boom…it’s time for you to Vroom
It is a natural cycle of the events, let us face it, demonetization has busted the peak season of the Indian subcontinent, it is the peak season because the weather is fine and foreigners love to travel India during this period.
As it goes with the theories of economics, once a market gets busted then recession follows, the same thing is happening in the real estate sector of India.
So the demonetization has busted the scene in the tourism industry and now there is a recession, you can pluck out some expensive fruits during the course of this recession.
I would like to compare it with a very unfortunate event, in the year 2015 Paris was gruesomely attacked by terrorists in the month of November.
It was believed that the tourism industry will be the worst sufferer, however, tourism industry bounced back big time because all the tour operators slashed down the prices.[highlight]Here I would like to mention another fact, the tourism industry of Paris survived mainly because of the domestic tourists, most of the embassies across the world released advisories where they discouraged Paris for tourism for the time being.[/highlight]
The tourism industry of Paris took the note of it; they promoted Paris for the domestic travelers and things picked up within no time.
Paris was attacked on 13th of November 2016 and on 9th of October 2016 Film Star Ranveer Kapoor was launching the music of “Befikre” in the same city. It is important because more than 60 percent of this film was shot in Paris.
I am sharing this one event with you. During the last year Paris was abuzz with many such events, in fact, this year was more happening for them in comparison with the previous years.
Now you might be thinking that why I am comparing demonetization with Paris attacks, please do not get me wrong. The intentions of demonetization are noble. It is only the impact that I am trying to compare.[highlight]Foreigners have not come to India because of demonetization and now tourism industry wants to cover this deficit with the help of domestic tourists.[/highlight]
It can be your chance to grab some amazing deals, by the time you might be reading this blog, many more deals will on the cards. All you need is to keep your eyes and ears open and yes, just please leave a few pages of your date diary blank.
If I have any rights to predict the future, then I can safely say that first two months of 2017 will bring in a recession for the tourism industry. It is true; however, the rest of the year will be the boom time for them.
I got this anticipation after listening to the plea of my nephew, his piggy bank saved the initial few days of demonetization, now he is a happy kid with three pink notes and lots of plans for his summer holidays.
It is just the same as everybody else. Needless to say, last two months taught us a lot of tricks to survive without cash !!!
The spending capacity of Indians is still the same; it was only a matter of currency notes, which were missing from the deal.
Last year we were blaming global warming because winters were not that cold. Things have changed this year.
Winters in “The real New Year” has added a pink undertone of Romance and currency. Make the best of it and pluck some fruits of recession from some of the hot and happening tourist spots of India.
