Top 10 destinations for a summer break

11
It is summer time and travellers are ready to take their vacations once again after more than two years of staying home under Covid-19 lockdowns. Added to the lure of international skies being open now, this seems to be the best time for Indians to take their dream trip. Be it a ‘dreamcation’, ‘staycation’ or ‘wellcation’, if the desire to travel outpaces one’s finances this summer, then TNPL (travel now, pay later) service providers are making immediate vacations possible. Abhilasha Negi, Co-Founder of SanKash, tells Zarafshan Shiraz, “Making travel bookings, especially for big-ticket trips with the entire amount paid upfront for a vacation, has always been stressful for travellers.
