UNIGLOBE & Goomo partner to boost Indian travel ecosystem
Shruti Dugar - on November 16, 2017
UNIGLOBE Travel, the world’s largest single-brand travel franchise and Goomo, India’s leading omni-channel travel tech company, have entered into a strategic partnership in a bid to enhance the Indian travel ecosystem.
This also marks the first-of-its-kind alliance between a traditional travel agent network and an online platform.
Uniglobe Travel South Asia currently has over 60 agency locations across India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka with an annual sales volume of over INR 3500 crores. The partnership will involve deeper collaboration between the Uniglobe franchisees, whereby customers on the Gooomo platform will be able to find a trusted agent and discuss their offline booking requirements with them. The partnership will serve as an ideal foundation for Uniglobe and Goomo to further expand their omnichannel presence in the booming South Asian travel market and add more diversity to Goomo’s suite of travel products, which can be availed either online or through a specialist agent.
Varun Gupta, CEO, Goomo, cited, “Clients have the right to choose the channel they’re most comfortable with while booking their travel. That’s precisely what our partnership with UNIGLOBE promises – a one-stop shop for our clients to access the best online and offline travel deals and products, so they don’t have to bother looking elsewhere.”
“Our association with a dynamic platform like Goomo presents a unique opportunity to target both offline and online consumers through the convenience of an omnichannel platform and the assurance of a knowledgeable travel expert. We are excited about our partnership and the value we could unlock by extending our superior travel management services, that offer unparalleled access to professional advice for extensive trip planning, to Goomo’s online client network,” added Raja Natesan, CEO, UNIGLOBE Travel (South Asia).
This exclusive association opens a world of opportunities to the wide network of UNIGLOBE Travel agencies across South Asia as it has the potential to add enormous sales and revenue as well as making it cost-efficient.
