Abstract

Tourism and allied sectors are interdependent entities contributing to foreign exchange earnings of the overall GDP of the country. Tourism and allied sectors walk hand in hand to attract and serve tourist at the destination. The outbreak of COVID-19 compelled the countries to seal their boundaries; levy restriction on visa & foreign tourist and social distancing. Fear in the mind of people about the virus has impacted the movement of the tourist in the domestic & international market leading to revenue loss for tourism sector. The process of unlock 1.0 has started but tourist has many expectations post lockdown about the mode of travel, the travel agency which will plan itinerary, hotel they are going to stay, whether all sectors are following the strict rules & regulations to provide safe & hygienic environment to its tourist. The questionnaire will be circulated by Simple Random sampling method among the residents in Maharashtra through Google forms- digital survey app medium. So the study has attempted to explore and analyze the impact of lockdown on tourism & the changes in the tourist behavior and choice patterns post lockdown from the tourism service providers.
