The travel landscape has changed significantly post-pandemic. Now, booking and managing travel arrangements is harder as customers require careful support and guidance. New customers seek confidence in a new, uncertain travel environment. Using a trusted travel tour operator like Inspiring Vacations means that every stage of the booking is handled seamlessly, Ujjwal, Director, Inspiring Vacations India, said.
Inspiring Vacations India made its debut at SATTE 2022 and received overwhelming response from travel professionals across the nation. “We have a market-leading booking system and a product offering that exceeds consumer expectations, at an unbeatable, value-for-money price,” Ujjwal said adding that the typical Inspiring Vacations customer aligns with the local Indian market: highly discerning, well-travelled and focused on quality and value.
Responding to a question about popular destinations for the company in India, he said that there is a very good interest in Japan, Greece, Spain and Portugal. But there is significant interest in a wide range of places and trip styles.” We offer value-packed tours to exciting destinations on all seven continents and have bestsellers spanning multiple segments Spain/Portugal/Morocco and Japan are two of our biggest sellers,” Ujjwal informed.
Talking about the USPs of his company, he said that Inspiring Vacations offer enriching, value-packed escorted tours along with a straightforward, user-friendly booking process and outstanding service and support. “Most of our tour packages come with, or can be, packaged with flights, making our offering unique in the Indian market. Agents have the option to organise the tickets and customer visas for the client or select a convenient flight-inclusive package. We know our destinations intimately and have the experience and connections to deliver an unrivalled, meticulously managed, holiday package,” he said.
The company offers packages for both FIT and Group Travel segments, but its group travel packages are very popular. “Our typical customer is usually a first-time traveller to their chosen destination, and they seek support in their booking and travel experiences. We have expanded our product range with much success to include a robust FIT segment (particularly in the Australian market) but our core offering, and biggest success remains in group travel,” he said adding that the company will not be catering to the MICE market as it’s not in line with its core business that resonates with our customers the world over. Our quality, value for money, fixed departure tours cater to the judicious traveller seeking rich travel experiences at undeniable value, he added.
Speaking on promotions and marketing, Ujjwal said that Inspiring Vacations India is focusing on agents by building quality relationships with trade partners across the country through scheduled visits, email marketing, webinars and trade advertising. “This, of course, complements our handsome incentives and commission to the Indian travel fraternity. Collaboration with industry partners and affiliates has always been important to Inspiring Vacations. We are determined to be the tour operator of choice and will reward these productive relationships accordingly,” he added.
Inspiring Vacations India already have a wide range of 2023 departure dates for tours available to book now, and its user-friendly booking system with live availability and guaranteed departures means travel plans can be secured now, he said.
