TripAdvisor the world's largest travel site, today announced the results of its Health on Holiday survey conducted amongst over 3000 Indian travellers. Holidays are known to be times when people throw caution to the wind with respect to their usual regimented daily schedules and habits and indulge in food, drink and merrymaking. However, the TripAdvisor Health on Holiday survey reveals Indians to be showing early signs of becoming healthy holidaymakers. Whopping 91% travellers put their diet between moderate and very healthy & 80% said they sleep adequately on holiday. 


However, purchasing health insurance does not seem to have caught on as an essential part of travel planning except when travelling outside the country, with 56% respondents claiming they get insurance only for international travel.  In line with being considered the more cautious gender, 66% women said they opt for insurance during overseas travel compared to 50% men. Also more women were cautious than men about carrying safe drinking water while travelling and avoiding use of ice in beverages.


Nikhil Ganju, Country Manager, TripAdvisor India elucidates ,  "Our survey has shown some interesting trends about Indian travellers who do tend to indulge but are also starting to keep a watch on their habits while on holiday." He further adds, "The usual frenzied schedules leave little time for people in cities to attend to their health. As a result, urban Indian travellers are beginning to look at their holiday as a wellness break, and as an opportunity to rehabilitate their normal unhealthy habits."

The Age of Indulgence

Free from parental restraint coupled with early financial freedom, those in the age group of 25-30 seemed to emerge as being fairly decadent with 1/3rd respondents in this group claiming they didn't care about health and wanted to indulge while on holiday. Among all other ages from 18 - 55, most respondents in this age acknowledged feeling unhealthy or tired in the days following their holiday. This age group was also most susceptible to sleeping too much or too little on vacation.
