Indo Asia Tours is delighted to showcase the span of travel treasures that lie in the subcontinent. For this, we are glad to offer a glimpse of what we do to as many influential people that are ready to experience India and the other surrounding countries that we represent. For this, we hold Familiarization (FAM) trips that can be customized to suit your business needs. The FAM trips are organised for travel agents, tour operators, members of the media and individuals. We aim to illustrate the nuances of travel planning, itinerary creation to suit a particular need, highlight what we think is essential for the destination and reveal our strength of longstanding partnerships with hotels and other holiday partners that make a trip smooth. On a FAM, you will be able to see the best of our abilities in action, so that there is nothing left for you to imagine, when you finally entrust your clients with us. More than that, our FAMs give you an opportunity to relax, step out of the business mode and enjoy this spectacular region.
Travel Agents – The strength and the reach of our business has been a function of resilient longstanding relationships with our travel agent partners. Even if travel agents have been our partners for a long time, their FAMs are structured around new destinations or fresh highlights on classic itineraries of their interest. This helps them to envision a trip, as their client would take it. This is also a great opportunity for new travel agent partners to assess our operations and embark on a journey of new business union with us.
Media – Print, Online and TV Media plays an integral part of our communication efforts. It is only natural that we take a focussed opportunity to showcase our best to the members of this group. Media FAM Tours make for great storytelling ideas with stunning backdrops, functional information and other material like hotel reviews for different mediums. Look at these tours as an excellent way for travel exposure. We invite international and national media to come for these tours in order to experience a new destination and the Indo Asia hospitality.
Tour Operators – We also hold FAMs for Tour Operators, who bring small and big groups to the subcontinent. Indo Asia is equipped to handle customized tours, depending on the need and expectation of a particular travel taste. A great way to begin a business journey or revive old connections that have lasted over the years, the only way to achieve this is by showcasing the best of Indo Asia. FAM Tours for Operators is an ideal way for them to evaluate our operational strength while enjoying the backdrop of a new destination.
Individual – The true testimonial for any travel establishment is when an individual traveller speaks of his or her experience to others. The impact of word of mouth marketing is unparalleled. This is why FAM tours for individuals is a special initiative from team Indo Asia Tours to reach out to influential individuals who truly like to travel to new and exciting destinations and are open to a glimpse of distinct cultures, deep rooted traditions or thrilling new adventures that we would like to showcase.
