Honeymoon trends to expect in 2021

With shorter, experiential trips currying favour over international destinations, Ankur Sarawagi, country head for wedding planning company The Knot Worldwide decodes what the honeymoon landscape looks like in the new normal:

Drivable destinations

Air travel has been a concern for the vast majority of couples planning their special vacation, and in order to minimise multiple physical interactions, drivable destinations are being preferred over long-distance locations. This trend has further inspired travel agencies to focus on two- to three-day getaways to various scenic hill stations, historical visits and adventure packages.

Rental properties

For many couples, luxury resorts promise security as health and safety protocols are strictly followed. However, to make their honeymoon memorable, couples prefer to rent Airbnb properties or smaller villas as they are more affordable and offer an immersive experience.
