Package vs Independent Holidays – UK

In the longer term, as countries regain popularity following unrest, tour operators are well positioned to exploit ‘new ground’ – pushing their resources and experience in destinations where infrastructure may be either recovering, or thin on the ground in the first place and thus much less suited to a self-arranged trip.

Some questions answered in the report include:

What can tour operators do to benefit from recent trends in overseas destination choice?
How can independent holiday providers capitalise on the ‘turn to Europe’ of 2011?
Which demographic trends offer opportunities for package and independent holiday providers, and how can they benefit?
Will Turkey’s rise in package popularity continue?

Indian Luxury Hotel Sector

This report provides an overview of the current state of the Indian luxury hotel sector and offers some insights into its future development. In contrast to many developing countries (for example China), India has a long tradition of luxury hotel-keeping, stretching back over a century, to 1902, when one of the country’s leading chains – Taj Group – was founded. Currently, there are five Indian hotel groups, namely: ITC Hotels; the LaLiT Suri Hospitality Group; Leela Group; Oberoi Hotels and Resorts; and Taj Hotels, Resorts & Palaces, all actively competing in the luxury segment, as well as some prominent independent properties. Several of the major international luxury brands, such as Kempinski, Starwood’s Luxury Collection and Le Méridien flags, Four Seasons, InterContinental, Hyatt and JW Marriott, have also entered the Indian market – frequently in partnership with local hotel groups.

Some key findings from the report include:

How many hotels are there in India, which are graded five-star deluxe or are members of the international luxury hotel consortium, Leading Hotels of the World (LHW)? What are the differences in terms of the level of service delivery within this broad and varied group of hotels.
Where do India’s luxury hotels tend to be located?
What is the client base of five-star deluxe hotels? How does the exchange rate of the Rupee against the US Dollar, the Euro and the British Pound affects demand for the hotels? Is it also affected by the economic climate in important source markets such as the US, the UK and Western Europe.
While there is undoubtedly great potential for expanding hotel capacity in India, what are the most interesting investment opportunities?
Is it likely that there will be overcapacity developing – at least in the short term – in luxury accommodation in many key Indian destinations that are already well served? How is competition from foreign luxury hotel operators faring as they progressively enter the market?
There is an impending labour shortage – how is this affecting hotel margins and operations such as salaries?
How are Loyalty or frequent-guest schemes operated by Indian luxury chains performing? What scope do they have?
