SOTC innovates exclusive products for travel enthusiasts Indians

Indian travellers today are increasingly looking for unique experiences while holidaying. SOTC has always taken pride in itself in understanding the needs of its customers in providing the best of products and services. To cater to this set of expectations, behaviour and preferences of the next rising wave of consumers, SOTC has curated two innovative products both for outbound as well as the domestic Indian traveller- Great Rail Journeys & Self Drive Holidays.

To capture high potential leisure markets for the outbound Indian traveller, SOTC has launched Great Rail Journeys in collaboration with “Great Rail Journeys” UK’s leading operator with over 40 years of experience in arranging holidays by rail. This enables the travelers to discover the best of the world through truly epic journeys travelling on iconic trains across entire continents such as Europe, Asia and Americas. The Great Rail Journey Holiday package from SOTC offers personalized travel through fully ushered rail tours that provide authentic experiences delivered with complete seamlessness. Each itinerary involves travel on special trains indigenous to the region. From ultra-modern trains to iconic heritage lines, SOTC believes that traditional rail travel will give travellers the most memorable aspects of their global adventures.

Self-drive holidaying, as a travel product and a trend, is becoming progressively more popular amongst Indian travellers. To tap into this segment SOTC has launched Self-Drive holiday packages for the domestic market in India. SOTC provides self-drive car rental on a set itinerary combining with choicest hotel stays on stay & breakfast basis. The itinerary has suggestions for tourists, which they can follow if they wish to. These packages offer great value for money and convenience for customers. With a fixed package, all hotel and car arrangements are taken care of, plus complimentary road maps and a detailed route itinerary.

The unique product offerings ensure a comfortable and hassle-free journey on wheels, for families, couples and ad hoc groups of friends.

Speaking about the exclusive product offerings Amod Thatte, Head Product, Contracting & Innovation, SOTC Travel said, “Experiential Vacations is an upcoming trend with travellers today and to cater to this demand we have introduced Great Rail Journeys and Self Drive Holidays for our customers.  With an increasing number of travellers valuing the personalized experience over anything else in their travel itineraries, SOTC offers an exceptional opportunity to visit some of the world’s most incredible places through classic train journeys. Domestic Tourism is witnessing a strong resurgence and the launch of our ‘Self drive Holidays’ intends to cater to this demand. With the concept of long weekend holidays serving as a mini escape, popular drive-down locations are seeing strong interest. For today’s travel-hungry yet price sensitive audience, our focus is on simple, easy to book, Self-Drive Holiday Packages that offer the unbeatable quality assurance of the SOTC brand, coupled with great value pricing!”

He further added, “Our holiday offerings feature a number of ‘hotel trains’, like the Trans-Siberian in Russia, The Canadian in Canada, The Ghan in Australia, The Blue Train in South Africa etc. Every itinerary includes a balance of experiences giving our travellers the chance to see more of the country and get a more authentic flavour of the region. At SOTC, we drive customer centricity in all our holiday propositions enabling us to create cherished holiday experiences for our travellers”.
