India has undergone tremendous change in the past several decades. Economic reforms and growth have created a burgeoning middle class characterized by increasing affluence, an improved level of education and a desire to travel. At the same time, advances in technology and the Internet spurred a variety of new travel options, online travel tools and services. Tech-savvy consumers have been eager to tap into these alternatives and efficiencies, and now leverage the Internet and (more recently) their smartphones to plan, book and share their travel experiences.
PhoCusWright's India Consumer Travel Report provides a complete picture of the new Indian traveler: who are they, how they travel, how they shop, and what they want. This report examines the Indian traveler population, including their demographic profile, travel and spend behavior, and a range of travel-related activities in which they participate. This study dives deeply into how Indian travelers select their destinations; plan, shop and purchase their travel; and use social media and the mobile channel for travel.
Based on data collected from approximately 2,500 Indian travelers across 12 major metropolitan areas, PhoCusWright's India Consumer Travel Report includes:
- Demographic analysis of Indian travelers, including age, gender, income and education level
- General traveler behavior: trip frequency and duration, travel party composition, incidence of domestic versus international travel, and future travel intentions

- Traveler shopping behavior, including types of websites used, online and offline sources of information, and influence of various types of online content
