Citizens’ response to the travel survey
According to reports, the survey received over 18,000 responses from citizens residing in 311 districts, with 68 per cent of respondents being men and the rest women.
LocalCircles says that 28 per cent of citizens are planning to travel during August-September, though only five per cent have made their bookings.
Additionally, during the second wave of the outbreak, many citizens faced teething issues with cancelling their travel plans for the summer. There were no refunds when it came to cancellations when the second wave hit.
It added that the travel agent or airline did not issue a refund in many cases and that some residents lost the entire ticket money.
Others were able to recover a portion of the ticket amount, and others were asked to re-book the trip at a later date.
However, many citizens are looking forward to travelling in August and September.
