Karan Anand, Head, Relationships, Cox & Kings, that is powering Trip 360º, said, “With increasing number of travellers shifting focus to ‘experience-oriented’ vacations, there is an increase in demand for the adventure travel services. The adventure travel business is huge in India; however, it is largely fragmented and unorganised. Many independent professionals and local operators offer adventure activities to travellers at low costs and with substandard services defying international norms, compromising on safety and sustainability. Trip 360º addresses these issues by filling the gap and brings out the best that India has to offer in the adventure landscape, in a safe and sustainable setting.”
The selected partners are locals from the area or specialists in their respective fields with an in-depth knowledge of the region and the local environment. Trip 360º aim is to consolidate the local’s expertise with theirs and create a platform for travellers to live and achieve their outdoor dream in a safe and healthy environment.
