Tours N Travels business without investment
Posted May 2nd, 2011 - 8:15 am by from Chandigarh, India (Permalink)
I wish to start a tours n travels company with a difference. I mean is to offer tours of unexploited & virgin places which are not offered by regular Tour companies but promise good potential.

I wish to have tie ups with like minded people who wish to have some extra income and can design a full surface package tour (Including hotel stay, meals, local transportation, & virgin sight seeings). The package must have a day reserved for aligning with local culture, local music / dance and local food of that particular country.

All we need to do is to contact local service providers, get a customized package tour showing the culture of your country. This package deal must be cheaper by minimum 40% of prices offered by regular tour companies.

Lets share such information among us and earn some extra income through this system.

Any suggestions & comments are most welcome

Good ideas. I run a marketing & sales company specialized in travel and there is increasing demand for alternative and original experiences. But there is very little on offer and by very small providers. That makes it difficult/risky to bundle with other products (hotel/etc), and most providers do not do tours for smaller groups, e.g. two people (only bigger groups) and if they do, the tours become unaffordable for the mainstream. And nowadays less and less people travel in groups.

I would be interested in sharing ideas, and maybe creating a community where small alternative tour providers could list their products for tour operators and independent travel agencies (and why not for consumers to find as well). I know there are a few sites out there but the quality does not convince me. Furthermore, the tours should be designed to meet the requirements of modern travel habits and those that sell/promote the trips.

Hi Kim,

I run a small travel company in Bhutan.We organise farm tours for small group that is for two people. Our clients live in farm houses in the villages and experience the way of living of Bhutanese people. They also cook with the villagers. Farm tours helps to generate income for the villagers.

We provide tour packages depending on our clients' interest.

It will be a pleasure for us to work with you. For more information, please contact me at thinleywangchuk@hotmail.com

Looking forward to hear from you.

Best Wishes,

Kunzang Wangmo

Not sure how this will work! There is logistics of travel to put together and the other side be able to provide the services they promised. You wud need to be in touch with reputable business entities not fly by night who take your $$ and then vanish.

Just my thoughts but you an supply some details on this.

Regards
