On being Creative

What makes Creative different? What makes us a preferred partner for some of the finest travel brands in the world?

We have deep first hand experiences of India, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Tibet and the Maldives. We have multi-faceted skills matched by few and prefer to work with travel companies and professionals. We do not pursue travellers directly.

We position ourselves as travel consultants and advisors. Our role is to match our knowledge with your needs and create the right products for you to sell. Our dedicated specialists design customcrafted journeys with your specifications in mind to guarantee experiences of a lifetime. We are flexible to the needs of our partners.

Our mission statement was written collectively by the team members of Creative Travel and we stand by every word with pride: “The foundation of our companies are based on being creative, innovative and dependable in all we do for our partners across the world. We are proud of our historical, cultural and social heritage and we work to showcase these in the most engaging and honest way we can. We aim to continuously exceed our guests’ expectations and ensure they return home as ambassadors of our region.”

Our greatest skill lies in our desire to present South Asia through experiences that showcase the heartbeat of a living and vibrant culture. Our trips feature unique experiences not offered by others — whether it’s for a wellness holiday, a spiritual sojourn, a culinary exploration or a wildlife adventure. This is fundamental to every program we design.

We are committed to ensuring that whatever we deliver is filled with our love and pride we feel for the countries we cover. We take pride in our diverse team of more than 150, the backbone of our system. From our operations team members to our drivers and guides, each and every one is motivated by a desire to do their best. Our job is to make your job as a travel professional as easy as possible. We excel at quick response times on proposals, detailing in content, accuracy in terms and competitiveness in pricing.

All our guides go through a rigorous vetting process. Every driver we use spe-cialises in handling international travellers. All our frontline representatives have extensive guest handling experience. After all, we realise the most important element on any tour are the people that face the guest on the ground.

We recognise that we need to be flexible in pricing, for every traveller has a different budget. We are committed to our partners to never drop a price only to get business, but to ensure we offer a balance between quality and value. Helping ensure that you retain your client for their next trip is our contribution to our relationship.

We believe that business is about building relationships. We are known for our integrity and loyalty. We promise to stand by you, our partner, and believe that supporting our partners must come at any cost.

This is some of what makes us different.
