He also gave an insight of their business and about the new developments made by the company. Travelbullz has set out on a mission to be the largest marketplace in the world that will connect supply to distribution and make both sides technologically strong. They aim to empower the traditional DMCs as well as, the travel agencies and shift from an offline model of buying and selling, to digital. “All our customers are tech savvy, thanks to COVID, what would have happened five to seven years later has already happened,” said Singh.
Travelbullz claims to have a strong footing in India, Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau, Maldives, Dubai and Indonesia with 22 million dollars turnover in hotel sales in Thailand, Macau and Hong Kong, pre COVID. They recently celebrated their 11th anniversary, for which Singh said “Eleven years of awesome experience! We’ve seen some amazing passion in the team. I think we have made it till here because of our team and the support we have got from the travel trade from India and worldwide. It was one hell of a journey and we look forward to another 11 years”.
Talking of the new developments and initiatives, Travelbullz has recently launched a dynamic packaging engine, which will help agents book Maldives along with transfers at the click of a button. It is one of the easiest user interface where, agents can immediately issue vouchers on real time basis without waiting to send email or Whatsapp to any of the suppliers. Being highly user friendly, it helps customers and travel agents to make live bookings in real time. Digitalization is part of their new initiatives, i.e. to digitally connect destination management companies with the travel agents worldwide. This will help digitalise the entire business of DMCs and allow them to reach out to a global distribution seamlessly, at zero cost.
Singh stated that they have also started Thailand domestic business, which is the largest today, as Travelbullz portfolio of distribution and they further expanded their product in Dubai, which resulted in them to get huge agent traffic. Singh shares, “In 2020, we reported 10,400 bookings and in 2021, we have already crossed 7,800 bookings, which means it will end up somewhere in between 18,000 bookings projected at the end of this year, depending on, how the COVID formalities pan out.”
