Easter Weekend 2018: Getaway without breaking the bank!

Haven’t made plans for the Easter weekend 2018? It is just around the corner folks! We spent a lot of time this week in digging up for cheap flights to popular destinations and landed up in shock after seeing the fares. It turns out that, flight to Goa (from Mumbai) are expensive than some famous international destinations. When we say expensive, it is INR 16K for a round trip between Mumbai & Goa!

So we thought we’d give you options. Since it is all about utilising a good amount of time on the ground during this break, we have selected flights which will allow you to spend maximum time in those destinations. Here is a list of few popular destinations to explore for the Easter Weekend. One great place to start, if you are looking to fly in luxury on the cheap would be to look at Momondo. This is a great website to pick up luxury fares on the cheap. They are a metasearch engine, just like iXigo.

For Economy fares, you could look at tonnes of places. Skyscanner is a good place to start looking.

Now, let’s get to the meat of where to go. While we are putting out options from Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore, there are so many more places to go.
