Travelguru Launches Independence Day Campaign Huge Savings on the Long Weekend

Mumbai, India (13 August 2012): There is always a rush for travel tickets and hotel reservations when there is a long weekend around and what better place to be than Goa!, one of India's largest online travel agency, has unveiled its list of top weekend getaways. And no surprises in who takes the crown, it's the land of sun and sand, Goa.

With the Independence Day falling on a Wednesday, by taking a couple of days off from work, one can enjoy an extended 5-day-long-weekend. As observed over the past few years, people from Metros have shown a penchant of running away from the maddening city life and spend their long weekend in one of the nearby destinations.

Based on booking data over the last 2 years, Travelguru has announced the list of most popular weekend destinations. Although the usual suspects like Goa, Lonavala, Alibaug, Agra, Shimla and Amritsar take the top honors, places like Bharatpur National park in Rajasthan, Lavasa in Maharashtra and Coorg in Karnataka have seen a steady rise over the last year.

"To make holidaying more memorable and worthwhile on this long weekend, Travelguru has launched an Independence Daypromotion offering attractive discounts on bookings across hotels in India," said Rajesh Jindal, COO, about the recent promotion from the company.

Elaborating further on the offer, Rajesh said, "The promotion offers hotel bookings at throwaway prices, combined with discounts up to 25%, free night stay and complimentary breakfast for hotels in Goa and other popular weekend getaways like Lavasa, Pondicherry, Coorg, Mussoorie and others.
