Travel Buddy has established itself as a travel-friendly marketplace for both inbound and outbound travellers, and is further looking at strengthening its roots in every corner of the country. This will enable the company to build a strong brand that attracts and builds local influencers network for when it steps foot in the Southeast Asian and SAARC region.
Speaking on the expansion plans, Saurav Chakraborty, Founder and CEO, Travel Buddy, said – ‘’Travel Buddy is on a journey to redefine how travellers experience destinations and their localised culture. We empower, both, explorers and locals to foster meaningful interactions and authentic experiences. Our immediate plan of action is to add 1000 more unique experiences by 2023 – that the travellers reminiscence for lifetime. We are more focused than ever and while we are passionately creating experiences in India, we have plans to build and drive the same experiences in the SAARC and in the Southeast Asian region in 2025, and we are very optimistic.’’
Travel Buddy is swiftly aiming to cater to inbound travellers arriving in India, with immediate intent rather than waiting for the years 2024 or 2025. Their primary objective revolves around establishing a robust network of local influencers to enhance the experience of foreigners visiting India.
