The travel and tourism industry in India is one of the fastest growing industries on account of many factors such as globalization of organizations, rising income levels, and policy & regulatory support by the government authorities. The tourism industry in India has also witnessed a tremendous growth in the area of Business Travel. Business travel is the largest segment of travel industry. Today, India’s corporate travel market is estimated at no less than US$ 3 billion. Business travel thrives best in a free and robust economic scenario, and India is gradually moving in that direction. With liberalization paving the way for healthy competition and business going global, the Indian traveller too is evolving into a global traveller.
Corporate travel management in the current scenario is dynamic and needs meticulous knowledge of the industry to ensure the end goal of efficiently achieving a comfortable, cost effective and a well-managed travel plan. Kaia Tourism, a global accommodation management company, is striving to give business travellers not just an altogether visionary and seamless booking, but also a thrilling travel experience.
Kaia Tourism specializes in corporate and personal travel accommodation and Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions (M.I.C.E) in India and worldwide, managing over 100 plus corporate clients.
In the current trend of consolidation and use of technology, there is always a discourse of reducing travel expenses; but it does not necessarily mean less travel or stay. Kaia Tourism, keeping this in mind, provides individual care, predictability, and availability 24/7. They manage the right expectation, provide flexible cancellation/change policies, and provide small benefits like early check in/late check-out at no or minimal cost most of the time.
Ajay Anand, Founder and CEO of Kaia Tourism, started his career at a very young age of 19 while working for a travel management company. He subsequently worked for another three major travel management companies and ventured out as an entrepreneur at the age of 29.
Coming from a corporate travel background, he realized the presence of a huge gap and apprehended the opportunity to support and specialize in accommodation. As unlike other travel segments like ticketing, car rentals and visa’s, hotels were not very well organized and there were no specialized player/company at that time and what truly inspired him is his vision to create a very happy experience and memories for people who travel for business or leisure.
Ajay set off in the field of travelling and exploration, right from the age of 19, triggered by a predictable passion towards the same, with an education from IATA-Geneva, Switzerland and as a Trainee Travel Consultant at Balmer & Lawrie. With his undeniable belief that travel should offer a fresh perspective and a renewed energy led him to set up his own. His aim since then is to bridge the gap in providing specialized service for corporates in Corporate Travel Accommodation.
