India’s Best Awards: Lifestyle Brands That Make Travel Easier

Travel + Leisure India & South Asia is back with the 11th edition of its annual flagship property—the readers’ choice India’s Best Awards. This time, we celebrate the best in the travel, hospitality, and lifestyle industries, as chosen by YOU, our readers.

After celebrating everyone’s favourite destinations virtually for two years Travel + Leisure India & South Asia has returned on-ground to stir excitement once again at the 11th edition of its annual flagship property — the readers’ choice India’s Best Awards. And this year, the celebrations are bigger with the introduction of new categories that will help you rediscover the world.

With international border restrictions easing after pandemic-induced lockdowns, the traveller’s itch is more real than ever before and the surge in travel is a testimony to that. Moreover, there’re many international destinations to choose from which our readers have been exploring and voting for.

Whether it is taking a trip to the best country, choosing a destination to tie the knot, planning a romantic holiday, savouring local cuisines, enjoying a family getaway, or even lazing on the beach with a cocktail in hand, it’s only natural to want to do so at the best of places and we are here to help you with exactly that.

It’s hard to imagine a trip stripped off a suitcase or luggage. Or even an outing with friends or family get together that ditches the camera. Part of the joy of a memorable road trip stems from travelling in a comfortable car, while accompanying music devices ensure a fun journey. It’s safe to say — a good travel is made better with great lifestyle offerings!

With that in mind, the new lifestyle segment at India’s Best Awards 2022 hopes to give readers the opportunity to laud their favourites in the section.

These are the best lifestyle brands chosen by you

Made using a high-performance recycled polycarbonate Victorinox bags earned the title of the best luggage bags at the 11th edition of India’s Best Awards. They are sustainable and highly durable. The company also offers the option of personalisation.

Also known as the ultimate SUV, Creta has a breathtaking edgy design. The recently released Knight edition of the car has LED Tail lamps, trip beam LED headlamps with crescent glow LED DRLs and red front brake callipers making it the perfect car for road trips.

The smart, versatile car with an all new look, the Volvo XC40 is the best electric car according to the readers of Travel + Leisure and for all the right reasons. The compact luxury SUV has fast charging and can get 80 percent charged in around 28 minutes and can go from 0 -100 km/h in 4.9 seconds.

Vivo was the public’s pick for the best phone camera. Not just that, Vivo is also the official smartphone partner of Fifa World Cup Qatar 2022. The cameras of the X80 Pro model are co-engineered with Zeiss and are known to give the ultimate cinematographic experience.

The Editor’s choice when it comes to the Best Phone Camera category is none other than iPhones. The iPhone 14 models which are also the latest release by the brand have 48 MP camera lens.

boAt is a one-stop shop for people who are always on the go. From Bluetooth headphones to smartwatches and speakers, they have made a name for themselves in every category and that is why the readers of Travel + Leisure believe that they have the best portable speakers.

The Body Shop has some of the most environment-friendly vegan skincare products that are a traveller’s best friend. From products made using Edelweiss to Vitamin C-containing products and hair care essentials for every hair type, they have got you covered.

Editor’s pick for the Best Beauty Travel Kit is Forest Essentials and rightly so. The ayurvedic products which are 100% natural and ethically sourced are a must-have for a traveller to tackle every kind of weather. Moreover, these products come in travel-friendly sizes.
