According to the Indian Ministry of Tourism, foreign tourist arrivals have grown 117% since 2003. Foreign Exchange earnings for the month of February were $570.53 million.
Philippines and Sri Lanka were launched as they are key central Asian destinations and have strong growth prospects. Fiji has always been a popular destination with customers for an island getaway.
Croatia and Cyprus are key European destinations launched to attract business for the European summer from source markets such as Germany, United Kingdom and the Czech Republic. Morocco is also a popular holiday destination for many European customers. “HotelClub is always continuing to expand and grow in response to customer feedback and key tourism destinations.
