Dear Industry Colleagues,

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

The high travel season is at its tail end in India, and we are rounding off yet another exciting period of journeys across the subcontinent. We now look forward to welcoming our partners from across the globe for experiential and exciting visits to the region.

Our 2019 ‘Be Our Guest’ offering for those working in travel companies is now ready. Please ask us for exciting opportunities to explore India on your next vacation.

The Indian Budget was released recently but there was little to impact the health of the Indian tourism industry. No mention. Although this is an interim budget, there was some hope for relief on taxes. The overall inbound industry still needs much improvement in policies and measures from the government.

We are excited to see that many destinations of the region have captured the world’s fancy and will continue to do so in 2019. From Mumbai to Agra, Kerala, and the Andamans, India has featured amongst the top destinations for 2019 on coveted lists by Conde Nast, Forbes, CNN, Travel + Leisure and more.

In this issue of ‘Creatively Yours’ read about Uber’s latest speed-boat offering in Mumbai; a new museum complex in New Delhi; India’s largest river ropeway in Guwahati; and the arts and crafts festivals taking the country by storm.

Best Regards
And Have a Creative Day!

Rajeev Kohli
Joint Managing Director

Jon and I have just returned from a wonderful trip to India, arranged through the Flight Centre in the UK but obviously planned and delivered by Creative Travel.

I wanted to write and thank your entire team for their dedication and professionalism throughout the trip - they were there from the moment we landed until the moment we left and looked after us every step of the way.

Two people deserve a special mention: Mr Abhishek Kumar Tiwari, your Guest Ambassador in Delhi, who (among other things) initially welcomed us at the airport and subsequently helped us to navigate the chaos of Delhi train station, both on our departure to Agra and arrival from Jaipur a few days later; and our driver, Mr Gurvinder Singh, who was wonderful. We felt totally safe with him behind the wheel and he ensured we never wanted for anything - bottled water, riding comfort, temperature, etc. He was excellent company on the long journeys around the Golden Triangle and he went above and beyond the call of duty to take us on additional excursions (such as a theatre performance in Agra) that were not on the original itinerary.

Thanks also to Usha and IV Singh in Jaipur for welcoming us into their home for a cookery lesson and local dinner, and to all the other agents and guides who helped to create such a memorable trip for us.

Your company is excellent and I would have no hesitation in recommending you.

Kind regards
Paul Weaver
