Due to long weekend on independent day flight prices from Delhi may hike
Delhi its plan to celebrate India's 70th year of independence in style, but flight fares from Delhi to popular tourist destinations like Rajasthan, Goa and Kerala are getting costlier and more people plan their getaways for the Independence Day long weekend
India is celebrated the 70th year of its independence from the British this year on 15th August, a Tuesday. It would be a good idea to take the Monday off and club the weekend for a nice four-day holiday. And there are plenty of people doing just that, especially in Delhi. Folks from the capital city are rushing to plan out their long weekend getaway, and that’s causing prices to go up. The big destinations, like Rajasthan, Goa and Kerala, are getting costlier. Flight fares are on the rise from Delhi to these places, so book your tickets soon.
Look at Goa
Flight fares from Delhi are generally around the ₹ 3,000 mark, but they are now ₹ 9,000 for the long weekend. Flights from Delhi to Kochi also tend to cost between ₹ 3,500-4,000, but flights to God’s own country on 12th August start from ₹ 5,000, and return flights are ₹ 10,000-12,000 and higher. Flights to Jaipur, meanwhile, are relatively less expensive, ranging at around ₹ 1,500 from New Delhi and ₹ 2,500-3,000 for the return leg. Meanwhile, if you are headed for a mountain getaway from Kulu, Himachal Pradesh, you will have to shell out around ₹ 15,000 for a one-way flight; fares are generally around ₹ 7,000-8,000 for this route.
Travel agents suggest that hotel rooms are also getting booked pretty fast. That could be a problem in places with fewer accommodation options, like Dharamsala or Kasol. This isn’t a new phenomenon by any means; flight fares and hotel prices tend to go up during such extended public weekends. Still, that doesn’t take away from the fact that it is going to get increasingly difficult and costlier to make your plans now that August has begun and we have just two weeks left to Independence Day. Needless to say, we do not suggest going for a spontaneous getaway; get your travel tickets and hotels booked beforehand instead of winging it.
