Top 10 destinations for a summer break

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. After the pandemic outbreak, travellers plan shorter trips closer to their date of travel, rather than planning months in advance. This hurts their pockets even more. However, through the ‘travel now, pay later’ option available at the POS with travel merchants, travellers pay over an extended period and enjoy the holiday they might never have thought possible.” Given the ease of purchase, she listed the top 10 international destinations that are gaining popularity in the summer of 2022: (Photo by Jingxi Lau on Unsplash) 11
