The online travel market is booming as internet savvy travelers become more interested in online travel. It makes sense that online travel is one of the fastest growing markets in the world. India is also in the running, with industry experts saying India’s online travel market is worth about $6 billion.
As a natural result of this growth, Travel Guides has steadily gone online, targeting niche readers in the process. Brands that have always been in print and brands that only exist online are struggling to capture the attention of this niche group. After initial hesitation, print brand publishers have also embraced the web and put all their content online.
Let’s see what a travel guide has to offer. Travel guides are now a must-have for anyone who wants to travel. Travel guides are not only well-written, well-organized, and well-indexed, but they are also full of helpful tips, accurate information, great ideas, and more.
These city-specific guides provide information about different parts of the journey. You will find good information on how to get there, attractions, excursions, festivals, history and various places to stay such as inns, hotels, resorts and B&Bs. Maps make it easy for newbies to find their way to wherever they want.
A good travel guide should also briefly describe what there is to do in a city and the daily things to do. Public transport in the city where the traveler ends up is another important part that is often forgotten. A real travel guide should also contain accurate information about how public transport works, such as bus routes, taxi fares and car rental prices.
City guides also need to be balanced in the information they provide. This is important because people travel for both pleasure and work.
Online travel guides have advantages and disadvantages.
People are doing more and more research on the internet, so online travel guides are becoming more popular than their print counterparts. However, both brands have their own strengths and weaknesses.
Online destination guides excel at using user-generated reviews, and they also offer e-commerce options, which is a plus. So browse the guide’s web pages and book flights, hotels and other programs all at once through the site. Another advantage of online manuals is that there is a lot of room for improvement. For example, Indian Railways is planning a new train from Amritsar to Kasar Gord. This information can easily be changed in the guide for the traveler to see.
Hotels and car rental companies vary their prices based on the time of year and the level of competition in the area. Online travel guides also offer packages that vary based on these factors. On the other hand, it is difficult to find online travel guides that are not influenced by the company. It’s not uncommon to see lots of sites to get people to go somewhere, or sites with traveler reviews that may not be completely unbiased.
All in all, online travel guides are a great way to get to know the small towns of India that have a lot to offer tourists but are often overlooked. For example, the northeast and north of Kerala, which have rarely been visited by tourists over the years, have seen many people thanks to the ubiquitous guidebooks.
