Quantitative Research

In quantitative research, about 61 people were surveyed and found some insights in form of data.

The results of the survey pointed towards the obvious fact that people who wish to travel but couldn't travel still want to take a vacation or travel to the respective place. That's how the idea of EXPLORE was born.

Qualitative research was conducted to understand the users and their activity.

User interview questions:

  1. Why do you travel?
  2. How often do you travel?
  3. Would you like to travel alone?
  4. How do you feel when your friends and family aren't available?
  5. Do you travel alone?
  6. How comfortable are you traveling with a stranger?
  7. How was your solo travel experience?
  8. What's your usual mode of transport?
  9. What's your favorite place to travel?
