Rise in Vaccination fuels inter-state travel : AbhiBus 

AbhiBus, a leading online bus travel aggregator has witnessed a surge in demand since June, as many states relax their lockdown restrictions. The company witnessed 60% surge in demand with more than 4,50,000 bus bookings in the 5 weeks since June. Rising vaccination rates and lifting of lockdown restrictions across states have fueled leisure travel along with the previously on-going essential travel. Abhibus has reported that of all the travel since June, 55% of their travelers have been completely vaccinated and an additional 32% have received the first dose of vaccination. Abhibus continues to check for Negative Rt-PCR report from the rest 13% followers, to ensure safety of all travelers.

 

The rise in local travel demands especially for leisure travel, provides a ray of hope to the travel sector.  While the demand for bus travel is nowhere near the pre-pandemic levels, vaccination efforts may provide the required impetus for people to safely travel across the country.

Commenting on the recent trends, Rohit Sharma, COO at AbhiBus, said, “We are witnessing a welcome surge in leisure travel across the country and that is a great sign for the industry. We hope that with higher vaccination rates, people feel safer to travel and revisit their travel plans which have been on hold for the past year. With this new initiative, we have made it easier for people to plan their vaccination and book their slots at a convenient location on Abhibus.com. We hope that the prospect of travel encourages people to get vaccinated. In the current scenario, customer safety is our utmost priority, and we will continue to adhere to safe travel practices.”

Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune, Visakhapatnam, Jaipur and Chennai among others, have been the most preferred travel destinations since June, according to Abhibus. Currently, business and professional travel still forms the bulk of this uptick in demand with a slight increase in non-professional and leisure travel.
