Spreading its wings further, Travstarz Global Group has now opened an office in Bali and is set to launch another one in Maldives soon.
Travstarz Global Group is undergoing many new developments, revealed its Managing Director Pankaj Nagpal. “We have now entered the cruise vertical and are working on a lot of other divisions, too, that are going to be announced soon. We have already announced the opening of our Bali office. Last month, we opened our Sri Lanka office. Now, we will soon be making a formal announcement of our Maldives centre,” he shared.
Sucheta Nagpal, Director and CEO, Travstarz Global Group, shared that all the new offices will have a full team and transportation. “We have also launched a loyalty programme for our travel agents who have been working with us for years. It will be an exclusive programme for a few agents where they can log in and claim their rewards. We have another portal, trip2 islands.com, open to all our agents as most of them work with honeymooners and look for island destinations. Instead of sending us emails and going on ‘click on b2b’or ‘in.resb2b’, this year they are going to log in directly to trip2islands.com, where we have ready packages to be booked right away,” she informed.
Having witnessed great support from travel agents for cruises, she claimed that they are looking for this to continue for all the cruise brands, right from Singaporean cruises, Dream Cruises, Star Cruises and even Australian cruises.
For Nagpal, 2018 was a phenomenal year as the company and its entire dynamics changed when Ctrip came on board. “That was a big boost to us not only in terms of funding but also in terms of technology and our reputation in the market. After that, we’ve added a lot of destinations along with Star Cruises and Dream Cruises to our portfolio. In the past three years, we’ve grown 100-115 per cent year-on-year each year. This time, after the infusion of funds, we are expecting the growth to be even more drastic. The first three quarters have been great as we have already over-achieved our last year’s turnover by almost 50 per cent,” he shared.
He also claims that their focus will increasingly lie on flights and new destinations. “With our DMC network spreading wings, we hope to increase those numbers drastically. Of course, the flight business is going to improve but the focus will be on cruises.” mentioned Nagpal.
