Indian Holiday taps into the Australian market

DMC expands global reach with representation down under

Subcontinent destination management company Indian Holiday (IHPL) has established an outpost in Australia as the firm responds to an uptick in tourist demand, primarily for India, following the pandemic.

Headquartered in New Delhi, the 34-year-old business is a specialist in tourism and MICE-related services providing travel partners with package tours, hotels, transportation, guides, experiences, cruises, luxury trains and wellness holidays.

Represented locally by Karen Maher of Your Tourism Matters, Indian Holiday is already working with travel companies in Australia but sees strong potential for further growth, Abhijit Das Gupta, Vice President of Indian Holiday Pvt Ltd told LATTE.

The DMC offers travel arrangements across the country and into Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Tibet and Bangladesh. Most Australian clients of IHPL seek assistance for bespoke  travel arrangements in Rajasthan, including the Golden Triangle, Southern India spanning Kerela, Tamilnadu, Kerala, as well as Goa and Gujarat.

Indian Holiday also create custom itineraries centred around women’s only tours, yoga and meditation tours, HOLI Festival, Ladakh motorbike tours, Gujarat heritage tours, sports tours and more.

“India has always had good visitation with English-speaking countries and it is increasing. Post-COVID the interest has risen higher, especially from Australia,” Das Gupta said.

“We now have our Sales Representation office based in Australia who are helping us to promote more in this market as this country has tremendous potential of travelling to India for holidays or for unique reasons or business and incentive reasons. Having an office in Australia also shows that we are committed to this market,” he added.

Das Gupta says he expects to see growth across all sectors. At this time, IHPL isn’t aligned with any of the major global luxury travel consortia like Virtuoso or Signature Travel Network, but does desire an invitation. At this stage, the firm is keen to work with as many retail agencies in Australia it can.

With a workforce of around 100 staff Indian Holidays provides a 24-hour turnaround on requests and quote proposals unless the arrangements are highly detailed and require responses from third-party partners. Most packages are supplied at nett rates for east, aside from luxury trains and luxury river cruises.
