Terror attacks and financial problems have made Europe cheaper for Indian travellers
"The volatility and currency fluctuations in Europe have certainly led to a fall in travel related costs like hotels, flights, etc. In recent times, travelling to and within Europe has become 10 per cent + cheaper. This implies that one can expect an increase in the number of travellers from India to EU nations in the days to come," Ranjeet Oak, chief business officer, holidays at MakeMyTrip, told ET.
MMT, which is India's biggest travel portal, is offering a week in Amsterdam and Paris for Rs 52,990, including air tickets.
Several locations, like Brussels, have seen hotels lowering their rates.
"The pound is down by about 11%, so there's definitely a proportionate advantage for travellers to destinations in the UK," said Vishal Suri, managing director of travel company SOTC.
