Thomas Cook India eyes strong demand from India’s Couples Segment
Mumbai: Thomas Cook (India) Ltd., India’s leading integrated travel services company, has introduced Honeymoon Specials & Romantic Breaks, a range of exclusive experiences for newly-weds or getaways for India’s couples looking to spend quality time post lockdown. Set against spectacular locales, the Company’s romantic escapades start at Rs. 5 999.00* (domestic) and Rs. 13 100.00* (international); with special elements, including candle-light dinners, couple spas, etc. for honeymooners. In addition, personalised itineraries are co-curated to cater to the couple’s unique interests.
India’s lockdown and work-from-home has put couples through increased pressures: a relationship test amidst juggling work with domestic chores. Thomas Cook India’s Romantic Breaks thus offers couples that much-needed time to unwind and rediscover themselves. The packages also serve as a unique opportunity to celebrate an anniversary or special occasions – for couples across age groups.
The Company’s Honeymoon Specials are aimed at newlyweds, with honeymoon plans postponed due to the lockdown or those now getting married. With restrictions resulting in small weddings, the highly reduced expenses allow couples to indulge in exclusive honeymoon travel experiences.
Thomas Cook has handpicked India’s favourite romantic destinations and special undiscovered locales at: Manali, Binsar, Jaipur, Agra, Udaipur, Chikmagalur, Nileshwar, Munnar, Kodaikanal, Pollachi, Pondicherry, Darjeeling, among others. The locations have been selected with care to include natural vistas of tea-estates, vineyards, rolling hills, beaches-backwaters; unique accommodation set amidst a golf-course or plantation, from a tree house or houseboat to a private villa. Personalized offerings such as eclectic cuisine, champagne sundowners, sunset cruises or a dinner on a private yacht, spa-wellness experiences, wine tasting, private picnics or an exclusive photo-shoot ensure the perfect romantic getaway.
International destinations include Maldives, Mauritius, Thailand, Dubai, Bali, etc. For India’s millennial couples, a range of outdoor-adventure activities are available as add-ons, like: snorkeling/river rafting or a cooking class in Bali, ATV tours, white-water rafting, bungee jumping in Thailand; swimming with the dolphins or kayaking in Mauritius; underwater dining, private yachting or a submarine ride in the Maldives; a helicopter/sea plane ride, hot-air ballooning, or zooming on the world’s longest urban zipline in Dubai.
