IndiaHotelReview.com one of the fastest growing Online Travel Agency in India and part of the Vriti conglomerate in a major move has become the authorized agents of the Government of Karnataka owned KSTDC. This was announced today by the Business Head of IHR Mr. Ankit Rastogi.
(OPENPRESS) August 11, 2009 -- With this, KSTDC has sanctioned IHR to book its Hotels, Restaurants, Golden Chariot Trains, Holiday packages tours, and city tours from their website.
Commenting on this prestigious deal Ankit Rastogi said "We are delighted to be associated with KSTDC, as IHR becomes the first national level OTA to be awarded affiliation by KSTDC. We believe our excellent track record as a responsible Travel agency and expertise in Hotel bookings especially in Karnataka has significantly contributed to this feat."
An upbeat Ankit explained in detail about the deal. "As IHR is based in North India, this would eventually pave the way for more and more tourists from north visiting the southern state. Karnataka has all the ingredients of an ideal travel destination .It is bedecked with pristine beaches, exotic wildlife, undulating hills, lush green forests, shimmering waterfalls, verdant Coffee plantations, ancient monuments, world heritage sites, sacred pilgrimages architectural wonders, historic forts and palaces and above all awe-inspiring landscapes. A journey through Karnataka leaves one invigorated and mesmerized.
"As IHR has always aimed to offer destinations with a distinctly local flavor which the tourists can associate with and this is one reason why we did not find it worthwhile to go with Incredible India. We believe our association with KSTDC will give us a good penetration of the state as well as open up the hitherto unchartered territories, deep into the interiors. "
On the concluding note the Business Head remarked " IHR is traditionally strong in South and does a brisk business for Weekends from Bangalore comprising among others verdant hills of Coorg , pilgrim centers of Kukke Subramanya and Kollur, beach tours of Udupi, Gokarna and Hannover, ruins of Hampi and wildlife sanctuaries of Dandeli and Nagarhole. With this affiliation we are now even better poised to offer the tourists a wider range of choices in terms of locations and accommodations, be it hills, beaches, pilgrimages, jungle lodges .''
