Travkart and Avis team up to roll out exclusive international self-drive holiday packages

The strategic association aims at delivering premium travel experiences combined with an unmatched international self drive car rental experience in 168 countries.

Travkart, the first and only online platform for fixed departures of Holidays by Sahibji Pvt. Ltd., has collaborated with Avis, world’s leading self-drive car rental company, to offer handpicked outbound holiday packages designed for every type of traveler. The move underscores Travkart’s commitment to deliver carefully curated premium travel experiences, combined with Avis’s unmatched international expertise of premium self drive car rentals services. The partnership will allow travel agents to book car rental services in 168 countries including Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Dubai, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, Scotland, UK, US, Europe etc. through Travkart website and Mobile Application.

Speaking on the collaboration, Manheer Singh Sethi, Co-founder, Travkart.com, said, “Indian outbound travelers seeking experiential holidays are fast maturing and evolving. This is resulting in the trend of self-drive holidays gaining immense popularity. Thus, we decided to collaborate with a global company like Avis to make Travkart the first travel brand for introducing international travel packages with the luxury of self-driving, thereby creating a new benchmark in the Indian travel and tourism industry.”

Sunil Gupta, Managing Director & CEO of Avis India said, “There is a rapidly growing desire for Indian to use self-drive cars while travelling abroad. This mantra of self-drive holidays is capturing the imagination of the discerning and the well-travelled Indians. By teaming up with Travkart, we will be offering all the enthusiastic travelers on Travkart platform some exclusive road trip experiences that will truly make their journey an exciting adventure.”

The alliance will ensure Travkart users to opt from diverse lucrative international packages to Bangkok, Singapore, Malaysia Dubai and others clubbed with self-drive experiences. Travkart is also planning to extend the alliance for domestic travelers who want to explore Indian destinations by their own. Travelers can book their self-drive holidays from packages live on the platform by logging on Travkart’s website or mobile app.

After the USA, Australia and New Zealand, self-driving holidays are now fast gathering pace among the Indians for being experiential and adventurous in nature. This rising trend is driven by the ease of renting a car of their choice, rising purchasing power of the middle-class families, affordable navigation systems with a GPS and also being able to drive with Indian license in many countries like Australia, New Zealand, UK, Asia as well as in India. The travel bug in millennials is also accelerating this trend as they are keen to explore the destinations at their own pace and navigate wherever they want to in a cost effective and hassle-free manner. Travkart’s collaboration with Avis is simply an endeavor to boost the country’s new-found immersive travel experience.
