Users can easily add two additional destinations from and to several international destinations, such as Japan, South Korea, Australia, China, Europe, and the United Kingdom.
According to Mastercard Future of Outbound Travel in Asia Pacific (2016 to 2021) data, Thailand is expected to record annual outbound travel growth of 4.8 per cent during this period with the number of tourists expected to exceed 9.1 million people in 2021. This growth is also expected to increase, both due to business trips and leisure travel.
Caesar Indra, senior vice president of Traveloka’s Business Development, said: “We understand that outbound travel shows positive growth. This is also in line with our understanding and valuable input from our users to provide Multi-city flight features. When travelling abroad and staying in a country such as Japan, visitors often move from one city to another. For instance, they will arrive in Tokyo but move to Kyoto or Osaka and make the last city they visited their return flight location. By using Multi-city flight feature, we want to invite users to explore the world around them and remain also committed to continuing to accommodate users’ needs."
