Goa to launch new travel booking portal
Rohit Kaul, New Delhi, February 1, 2016
 

THE Goa Tourism Development Corporation (GTDC) will soon be launching a multi-lingual e-portal for travellers to book tourism products found within India. Travel agents will also be able to list their offerings on the site.

 

A 12-hour call centre and accompanying smartphone app on both iOS and Android platforms will also be made available.

 

"We are converting our existing website into an e-portal and are on the verge of its rollout. We aim to offer a one-stop shop for tourists looking to book hotels, tour packages or products like hot air ballooning, kayaking and scuba diving," said Nikhil Desai, managing director, GTDC.

 

He added: "We are launching a host of new tourism products in the early part of the year like bungy jumping, segway tours, luxury yachts, heli-tours and heritage boat cruises among others. The portal will offer us a good medium to promote all these new services.”

 

When asked about the revenue GTDC expects to generate through the e-portal, Desai said it is too early to speculate.
