Thomas Cook soars on domestic travel boom
Thomas Cook (India) jumps 5% to Rs 225.70 after the company said it has witnessed a significant growth in domestic travel demand in India.
Thomas Cook (India), India's leading omnichannel travel services company, and its group company, SOTC Travel, are experiencing a surge in domestic tourism. Their latest insights reveal a travel boom, with both companies exceeding their total domestic travel figures for all of 2023 in just the first half of 2024.

The latest insights suggest that travelers are seeking more luxurious experiences. This is evident in increased spending and a preference for higher category accommodation and prioritising in-hotel experiences like spa, wellness and dining. While short getaways remain popular, there's a growing trend towards extended vacations of 15 days. Popular destinations include Kashmir, North East, Andamans, Kerala, and Goa. Adventure activities, domestic cruises, and pilgrimage tours are also seeing a rise in demand. Pilgrimage tours are up by 45% compared to pre-pandemic levels, with a surprising interest from younger generations.

Rajeev Kale, president & country head – Holidays, MICE, Visa, Thomas Cook (India): "Domestic tourism is fueling our growth this summer. We've achieved both our revenue and passenger volume targets for all of 2023 within the first half of 2024."
