Anchor Destinations will handle marketing and sales for Thailand-based DMC, Splendid Thai Holiday and aims to boost outbound traffic among Indian FIT, GIT and MICE travellers.
Anchor Destinations, a start-up, has already ventured into many facets providing B2B solutions and DMC representations in its very first year of operations in the travel Industry. It offers services ranging Airport Concierge Services at all airports on a pan-India basis, marketing and DMC representation, and also acts as a mediator for several luxury resorts in the Maldives. Recently, Anchor Destinations was also appointed as the marketing and sales office of the Thailand-based DMC, Splendid Thai Holidays. Commenting on the milestone, Founder and CEO, Anchor Destinations, Deepika Khanna shares, “With their own fleet of vans and excellent contracted rates for luxury and four-star hotels in various destinations like Bangkok, Krabi, KohSamui, Phuket, HuaHin, KohSamet, it will definitely increase the traffic from the Indian segment for the FIT/ GIT and MICE travellers. To promote this, we also plan to do small workshops and roadshows in various cities.” As per Khanna, personalised services with attention to intricate details of the customer requirements and perfect understanding of the product along with adequate training of the team ensure growth. “We will soon be adding more products to our list and thereby offering all travel solutions under one roof to our clients,” she states. For Anchor Destinations, the start of year saw an upsurge in the number of travellers and bookings with the increase in demand for luxury and family travel. “In the very first year of operations, we operated fixed departures to Europe and other Baltic countries with GIT and MICE groups to Australia, Dubai, Singapore, Bali, Malaysia and USA. However, demonetisation has hampered the tourism sector and has caused Indian travellers to either cancel or postpone their travel plans.”
