Dear Industry Colleagues

Welcome to another edition of the award-winning 'Creatively Yours'.

Creative Travel has always been proud of our ability to innovate and showcase our region in different and unique ways. We have a very strong focus on creating experiences as the way to explore our lands.

We are delighted to introduce our signature product series – ‘Engaging Journeys, Crafted by Creative’. Probably a first in the Indian market, these are unique journeys created around themes of varying interests. Each led by an expert, these trips will bring the guest face-to-face with different aspects of our culture, history and lifestyles.

In addition, our 2018 ‘Be our Guest’ offering for those working on travel companies is already out and if you would like to see some fabulous options to visit India at a subsidized cost, let us know. Write to us for a copy of the brochure that showcases the trips.

We have more exciting initiatives available for you. Some are meant for travel industry professionals to come and experience India and Creative's award-winning services first hand at a very special offer. Other initiatives are special offerings for you to market to your client base. We encourage you to send in your thoughts on what you think could work for your markets, so that we can have the team customize a product set for you. We at Creative intend to aggressively push the price competitiveness of India in its shoulder period as we feel the market is turning around for us. Let's use that to gain some interaction and make up for lost business.

You shall see some new and exciting initiatives in the next season from Team Creative - new experiential inclusions, new circuits, and new concepts. We take pride in our ability to make a trip to the Indian sub-continent something very different.

Read this and much more in this edition of Creatively Yours.

Best Regards,
Take care,

Have a Creative Day!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US


I had the pleasure of being the tour leader of our FamTrip organized during 24-31 March.This was my first trip to Incredible India but for surely not the last. It was a big, pleasant surprise for me and this would not have happened without Creative Travel’s extensive hospitality and attention during the whole trip.

From the first moment we exited the airport, until the last day when we were preparing to return to Romania loaded with lots of wonderful memories and experiences, we felt that we were important for Creative Travel, we felt safe and we experienced the real Indian hospitality.

For all this, I have to thank Creative Travel’s entire team who helped in organizing this and especially to Girish, Anuj, Shivi, Akhilesh, Kundan and Inder. Hope that I didn’t miss anybody and hopefully I will return soon to Incredible India.
