Hello everyone! I am sure we all love traveling, and so do I. I love going to different places and explore the country/city, get into their roots, know their culture and interact with the locals wherever I go. Keeping this passion in mind, I had an idea of turning this passion into my career, in short I have been tossing with an idea of starting up my own online travel agency. So, today I wanted to know few things which will help me in knowing the market worldwide.
Umm, I know it sounds boring, but I would really appreciate all your opinions. At the moment in the stage 1, I am planing to cater to a couple, or a family or a small group of people traveling to Asia, Southeast Asia, Dubai, Turkey and so on. In stage 2, I plan onto catering to maybe group tours. This is the idea that I have been toying around in my head.
So, for that I wanted to know:
1) When you all are traveling, how do you book your travels? Do you prefer an online travel agency or do you go down personally to an agency?
2) Do you prefer a customised travel or the packages that are already available online?
3) Do you prefer making your own itinerary?
4) Why would you buy a travel package from a particular travel agency?
5) What features do you look for when you are on a X travel website?
6) Would you prefer a known travel agency or you would be comfortable by going with a start up?
I think I will just stick with these questions for now, if you all have anything else to share regarding the same topic, please do give your feedback.
Thanks all! 🙂
I reached Amritsar yesterday morning by bus from Patiala and this was the first time I ever traveled in bus, to top it up all by myself. It was a different and an amazing experience. Met my grandmother, my aunt and everyone. The main purpose of mine coming here was visiting the Golden Temple known as Dardar Sahib and Harmandir Sahib. It was built by the fifth Sikh Guru, Guru Arjun, in the 16th Century. The Harmandir Sahib literally means The Temple of God. The fourth guru of Sikhism, Guru Ram Das, excavated a tank in 1577 CE which subsequently became known as Amritsar meaning “Pool of the Nectar of Immortality”, giving its name to the city that grew around it.
My another reason of coming to this beautiful city of God was to do seva which refers to “selfless service” work or service performed without any thought of reward or personal benefit. And I did, cleaning the water drinking glasses and wiping the floor. It was an overwhelming feeling. After which I went and ate the langar which is served 24 hours a day.
Today I went again and took a bath in holy water in the Sarovar which is the large lake surrounding the Gurdwara. Another amazing experience and a wonderful feeling.
This trip has been a nice trip after all and I realized that I do enjoy my company. Tomorrow morning will leave for Patiala again and will stay there for couple of more days before my journey comes to an end.
