Thomas Cook (India) and its Group Company SOTC Travel have partnered with Accor to launch Holiday Safe. The holiday portfolio aims at reassuring customers with comprehensive health and safety protocols incorporated via Thomas Cook India & SOTC’s Assured Safe Travel Program in partnership with Apollo Clinics, together with Accor’s Cleanliness and Prevention ALLSAFE label, developed with and vetted by Bureau Veritas. The attractively priced holidays, starting at Rs. 5 999.00*, include unique experiences and value additions across a range of domestic and international destinations.
While extended lockdowns and work-from-home stress have resulted in strong pent up travel demand for short drivable distance vacations, Indian consumers have understandably rated health-safety as their priority. Thomas Cook India, SOTC and Accor have hence leveraged their collective expertise in curating the Holiday Safe range that delivers on their comprehensive measures towards hygiene and safety while ensuring customers a memorable holiday experience.
Madhavan Menon, Chairman & Managing Director, Thomas Cook (India) Ltd. said, “As Indian travellers look to maximize their experiences while minimizing risk, our focus on customer health and safety remains our top priority. To build consumer confidence in the COVID era, we are delighted to announce our association with the Accor Group, one of the world’s largest and most respected hospitality brands. Our Holiday Safe collection incorporates the comprehensive measures of the Thomas Cook India & SOTC Assured Safe Travel Program and Accor’s Cleanliness & Prevention ALLSAFE label - with standards developed with and vetted by Bureau Veritas. This collaboration aimed at building a safe travel environment for customers, is inbuilt with clean-safe protocols across every step of the customer journey, and also incorporates unparalleled holiday experiences to delight the Indian traveller.”
Commenting on the partnership, Puneet Dhawan, Senior VP Operations, Accor India & South Asia, said, “In the current environment, we believe the ultimate determinant of guests returning is health and safety blended with innovative experiences and rewarding benefits. As an industry, this is the time to show solidarity and work together reassuring guests that it is safe to travel. Taking forward our endeavour to instil confidence amongst guest for safe holidays, we are proud to partner with Thomas Cook and SOTC and look forward to providing a holistic experience to our guests.”
