Queries for travel bookings and packages have surged considerably by 30% in view of the upcoming Eid-Al-Fitr break in April, said Musafir.com, a leading online travel agency, revealing business and consumer travel inclinations.

Despite the 10-15% increase in airfares, UAE travellers are seeking to travel internationally at significantly higher levels than they did last year. Nearly 65% are choosing leisure travel and 35% opting to celebrate with family either in their home countries or locally. Amongst the ones planning to celebrate in the country, a great majority are planning for staycations in Ras Al Khaimah, Fujairah, Umm Al Quiwan, Abu Dhabi etc.

Budget and visa-friendly destinations are in demand as people plan for the holidays that’s why CIS countries such as Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Armenia, are quite popular while Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan are gaining momentum alongside Singapore, Kenya, Thailand and Malaysia. Since receiving visas to the Schengen countries, the UK, USA and Canada is still challenging, people are more skewed towards countries where obtaining visas is hassle-free. Holiday packages within the range of AED3,000-4,000 are fancied and are in great demand.

Business Travel on the other hand will witness a drop of 10-15% during the first 15 days of Ramadan and will pick up again in the second half.

Raheesh Babu, COO, Musafir.com said, “Musafir.com works with partners worldwide to provide travellers with the best value deals to some of the most exotic travel destinations.
