If you have been wanting to travel for a long time but not sure if the time is right for that, then a report from a popular online marketplace offering short-term homestays and experiences will give you the necessary confidence.

Solo travel is on the rise


According to Airbnb, the ‘live and work anywhere’ policy has influenced people’s travel style to a great extent, especially among those who are able to work from a remote location. It has helped many travellers to travel solo and park themselves at their favourite locations for a long duration.

An internal report from the company states that approximately 30 percent of domestic and international bookings on their platform between second quarter of 2021 and the same quarter in 2022 were by solo travelers from India. Overall, solo domestic travel among Indians has grown by about 120 percent in the second quarter 2022, when compared to the same period in 2019.

This has encouraged the company to launch a safety product for solo travellers.

Tara Bunch, Airbnb’s Global Head of Operations said, “The safety of our community - including solo travelers - is one of our top priorities. As part of this, we’re rolling out a safety product in India that aims to allow solo travelers to experience all that the country has to offer with added peace of mind.”
