Seychelles Tourism Board conducted a familiarization trip for Indian tour operators to showcase the beauty of its three main islands- Mahe, Praslin and La Digue. This week-long educational trip, gave the tour operators an opportunity to experience the paradise islands, partake in various activities and get inspired by the local culture and cuisine.
While Seychelles is popular for honeymoon travel, the focus has been slowly moving towards other segments like family holidays, adventure travel and celebrations. The familiarization trip aimed to showcase various aspects that cater to the requirements of these segments. Senior Management from Madhura Travel Service, Flamingo Transworld, Travel Triangle, FCM Travel Solutions, Ambition Travels and Orion Holidays were a part of this educational trip and the entire experience helped to enhance their knowledge to better promote and sell the destination. During their visit, these Indian travel agents received a warm Seychellois welcome from various three star, four star and five star hotel partners. They also experienced services of the main destination management companies along with Air Seychelles who came on board as an airline partner. The group also got a chance to interact with Seychelles Tourism Board team to learn about the changing trends and positioning of Seychelles in the India market.
