For many years, people have been conditioned to believe that investments are mostly to do with assets such as properties and jewellery for example, or putting money into mutual funds, deposits, or insurance. Travelling or taking a vacation continues to be a luxury in certain households. At Cleartrip, we believe, travel generates attractive long-term
returns in the form of improvement in personal well-being, expanding one’s perspective, and helping one recharge and return refresh. How can we help people ‘invest in travel?’ These simple steps to plan well in advance will help you avoid additional expenses and have a great experience during your trip!
Book early, minimise costs
The first step is to identify the intent for travel when you are planning it in advance. Explore deals as per your need (leisure, wellness, adventure, solo, weekend getaway, etc.). Remember, the earlier you book, the cheaper the fares that you are likely to get. Booking the return leg on the same transaction can unlock discounted fares, and the savings are especially large on international travel. Similarly, booking ancillary services such as seats, meals, or baggage at the time of booking the flight is often cheaper than buying them later.
Flexibility is important
Not all plans go as per your intent. There may be some last-minute changes. You have got nothing to lose by spending a little extra at the time of booking to avail of free rescheduling or cancellations benefits. And with options like CTFlex and FlexMax to cover amendment/ cancellation charges, you don’t need to worry about a change in plans.
Choose the destination wisely
Tourist spots will be expensive during peak season. Picking a less explored destination not only offers the joys of experiencing something new and unique, but it can also be lighter on the pocket. Here are some off-beat locations to travel in India:
Pick right payment method
Pick the No Cost EMI option when you book. This allows you to pay for your trip over up to 12 small instalments at no extra cost (thereby improving the affordability factor). Or even better, pick the Travel Now, Pay Later option for greater convenience.
Secure your travel
Lastly, travel insurance is of utmost importance in the post-COVID world. Don’t fret about flight delays, missing/ damaged baggage, and travel restrictions. Just insure your trip for a hassle-free experience
Cleartrip’s medi-cancel feature allows a user to receive a full refund against cancellation due to an illness or any valid health concern. This is extended to users who have had to cancel due to a family member contracting COVID-19. This facility is available at no additional cost.
