Q1. What inspired you to get into the Travel Industry?

Travel specifically for me is more than visiting destinations and coming back, every place has its own taste and flavour, try travelling alone, you will easily realize it. Travel not only gives you experiences but it also evolves you from within. I believe none of the industries which exist on the globe reaches to our soul, body and mind other than the Travel industry. I realized this 12 years back and that's how we decided to give life time experiences to everyone, VDOO journey began on that day.

Q2. Kindly share some information about your travel business.

Idea of starting travel company clicked in 2008, during my corporate life, my first assignment with an IT Service company where I used to handle International delegates and travel operations for them, post that in early 2012, march 27th to be specific, I decided to launch VDOO Travel, we started our journey with a small office in Vasai West. 

We did many collaboration in Pune, Germany and Malaysia, initially we used to handle only International delegates and travellers and their travel plans to India (Inbound tours). Then gradually we started handling domestic couples and families, short  and long outbound tours. Now we have done more than 700 plus tours over the period of 9 years, tours comprising more than 200 destinations across the globe and 100+ destinations across our country. We have more than 100+ partners across India and globe which are supporting us to give perfect experience to our clientele.

Q3. What is your Unique Selling Point(USP)?

Our USP is last mile support to each and every client of ours. A dedicated team member takes care of them from day of departure to day of arrival. VDOO Travel has grown over the years mostly on the reference business, where the clients who have travelled through us have been referring to us within their network. Our tagline is "A bond of trust and commitment, the two pillars on which we have grown over the years."

Building up trust and differentiating ourselves at the start of the business.
