TravelSpice.in, termed as India’s first loyalty-driven travel portal, is being planned for launch in January next year. (8/20/2007)
The portal plans to provide travel assistance to family/leisure and business travelers across 5000 big/small cities via the portal and call center on 24x7 basis.
The venture is a centralised travel services agency, which will cater to an extensive range of travel services confined not only to flight reservations, hotel booking, car rentals, customised travel packages and holiday packages, but also foreign exchange, passport assistance and travel insurance.
Ramu Kallepalli, Robert N Joseph, Najeeb Quadri, C.V.N. Prasad and Nishtha Taposh together lead the TravelSpice team.
“It’s interesting as well as challenging to be a part of the booming Online Travel industry in India. In a market that is expected to double every year, our forte is to provide exceptional travel services to our customers. With our unique loyalty program and local language reach to consumers across India, we intend to bring more business to hotels and airlines. We will work in close coordination with the best travel suppliers to bridge the gap between supply and demand,” said Kallepalli, founder and CEO TravelSpice.
Quadri, Travel Manger, TravelSpice stated, “As a part of our loyalty programme, any reservations done via TravelSpice will earn the customer “TravelSpice points”, which can be accumulated over a series of transactions. The TravelSpice points earned by the customers in due course of time will translate into gifts and waivers on packages and flight/hotel bookings. This feature, unique to us will ensure that our customers get much more than what they pay for.”
The company announced strategic partnership of TravelSpice.in with Final Quadrant, Pegasus Infocorp, Amadeus India, eToursonline and VeriSign.
