Skyscanner reveals UK and Russia Record Highest Searches to Goa
Skyscanner, a leading travel search engine, witnessed a 91% increase in domestic searches to Goa, and a 63% increase in international searches during the same travel period (26th December 2015 to 3rd January 2016), when compared to the week before. Countries that recorded highest searches to Goa in the last week of 2015 include the United Kingdom and Russia – contributing to 41% and 38% of searches performed respectively.
“Of late, experimental travelling is becoming a common phenomenon among Indians. Increasingly travellers are combining their itineraries with events surrounding the arts, music, food, sports and entertainment. A surge in travel searches to Goa during the last week of December is indicative of this trend since a slew of big international music festivals, including Sunburn Goa 2015, is taking place during the same time period” said Ravish Doctor, Marketing Manager for India, Skyscanner.
He further added: “As Sunburn’s official travel partner this year, we are confident in equipping travellers with smart tools that will assist them in searching for the best flight options, saving them both time and money.”
Skyscanner recently announced its foray into the Electronic Dance Music (EDM) scene as the Official Travel Partner for the 9th edition of Sunburn Goa. The festival will be held on the Northern Shores of Vagator, Goa from 27th to 30th December 2015.
