April 2019

Dear Industry Colleagues,

Welcome to April edition of the award winning 'Creatively Yours'.

As we enter the shoulder period for travel in India, it’s a time when the Creative team is working hard to bring new products and experiences to the table.

India is abuzz with the General Elections, as the voting began on 11th April to decide the government for the coming five years. With a population of 1.3 billion and nearly 900 million eligible voters, this will be the world's largest and indeed most vibrant elections. The nation is set for a rollercoaster of emotions, celebrations and drama in the months to come. For some interesting information on the world's largest democratic exercise, click here.

The e-visa rules have been tweaked again to make them yet more user friendly. Details on that are below.

We are proud that we have been nominated yet again for the prestigious World Travel Awards. We hope to get your support this year as well. Voting instructions are below.

Our 2019 'Be Our Guest' offering for those working in the travel industry is now ready for you to use. Please ask us for exciting opportunities to explore India on your next vacation. Scroll down for further information.

In this issue of 'Creatively Yours', read about the select journeys of Creative's “Be Our Guest” program; new e-visa rules in India; upcoming tourism projects in the Andamans; Accor hotels in Rajasthan; and much more.

We look forward to your vote for Creative Travel at the World Travel Awards. Details below.

Best Regards &
Have a Creative Day!
