Mountains are a wonderful place to visit during the summer months and if you are planning to make a trip to the Himalayas, then you better do it right! Enjoying the lush landscape and having the time of your life can be done better, if you plan your trip a little better. 

Going on a Himalayan trip can get pretty costly, if you do not have a proper plan, since the people of these regions depend on their tourist economies and they look to earn their fair share during the peak seasons. Thus, going for a group tour packages India may seem like a more reasonable action for the following reasons –


1.Saves a lot on Travel Costs

Going up the Himalayan highlands and getting to different destinations can become a tough ask for your pocket because of the soaring car tariffs during the peak season. This is where getting into a group tour can help you, since the tariffs are doled out by the tourism agency and you just pay a onetime package fees. Of course, one could use shared vehicles also, but that becomes a matter of security, since you are having to travel with complete strangers and also, you might have to break your journey into parts because one ride simply does not get you to your final location, most of the time. 

2.Competitive Motivation 

Treks and hikes can be rather gruesome for people who do not lead an active life at home and travelling alone or with your own group does not an essence of healthy competition in most cases, unless there is a really fit person who is motivating everyone else. Group tours on the other hand tend to facilitate a camaraderie between participants and motivates each of the members to push themselves a little more and leave the finish line behind. This is another advantage of group tours to the mountains, and in many cases, group tour operators themselves make groups and create competition. 

3.Ready Help Always at Hand 

The Himalayan highlands are remote and treacherous and travelling by yourself could be a tad bit dangerous if you fall sick or meet with an accident. However, if you are with travel groups, there is always a paramedic or physician at hand who will make sure that you receive the right sort of emergency treatment. Even when you meet with an accident, you know that there will be people looking to make sure that you are all right in these remote destinations, something solo trips or personal group trips lack on an intrinsic level. 

These are some of the most important reasons why travelling with tourism group to the Himalayas this summer, could prove to be a really awesome experience. So, now that you know, make sure you try it out!

The thing about corporate tourism is, when it is business related, companies are more than ecstatic to send their representatives and team to an international or domestic outing and yet leisure corporate tourism seems to be dying a slow unnatural death. While the reasons to this are many, it primarily stems from the management’s stringent work demands and makes for a rather disturbing trend in the corporate industry. This blog looks to change that or at least initiate some part of it with its humble effort to make both companies and employees realize that “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy!”

So, let’s take a look at why corporate offices should pay heed to leisure corporate tours and travels and how it could benefit them in the long run.

https://www.discoveryholidays.co.in/contact/


1.Decreases Employee Burn Out Rate

More of a 21st century condition, work burn out is a serious issue that is being recognized by modern psychology as a result of the fast-paced grueling life that this generation is going through. Burn out can cause severe lethargy and resentment towards work, but also has an easy fix in balancing work and leisure. And while it is a futile attempt to give the youth these kind of tips, the corporate management can take such initiatives with ease and increase employee enthusiasm, thus decreasing burnouts.

2.Improves Teamwork Amongst Employees

Lasting employee bonds are formed not in office corridors but outside the shackles of corporations and that is what corporate offices should realize and facilitate that. In the long run, it will increase employee chemistry and make sure that they work for and with each other. Studies have shown that increased bonds between employees also increases total productivity and makes it much beneficial for the company itself.

3.Increases Loyalty Towards Company

Corporate leisure travel is more of a perk and employees are likely to appreciate the gesture from the management. It makes employees feel treasured and sets the belief in them that they are in fact and indispensable part of the organization. This becomes a very important aspect of Human Resources for a company and they should observe a uniform frequency of at least twice every year and employ corporate tour operators to make sure that everything is taken care of on every level.

4.Gives The Company a Place in  Employee Care List

Not only is all of this good for employees and productivity, but in an age where leisure corporate travelling is dying, it gets the company a lot of good PR. It is also more likely to get the cream workforce attracted to your company, thereby giving you an edge over your contemporaries. These kind of decisions have a ripple effect and a company that takes care of its employees will always be in a better business space than the ones who don’t.

5.Establishes a Reward System

A reward system gives employees something to look forward to ahead of all the hard work and makes them more enthused towards trying at office and creating better productivity. In fact, many companies have also started gifting tourism packages to the best performers as an appreciation of their hard work and that has made others indulge in healthy competition and win the prize.

These are some of the reasons why more companies should employ leisure travel as part of their yearly curriculum and reward employees for all their hard work in the long run. It is a dire need not only for corporates but also for employees as well who are losing their will to stay in the system and becoming more and more inclined to get out of it, even though many do not have the skill to be. In fact, for the sake of their own productivity, established companies should encourage and create a system that facilitates service rather than entrepreneurship. Now, that you know how much of a difference this could make, get this to your HR team as well and ask them for a pitch of pros and cons of such a move. However, the weight scale of pros seems a lot heavier in this case!

International tours always get us super excited, but there are certain things that one needs to follow in order to be safe. This blog lists out some of the pointers that are absolutely necessary, so that enjoy your foreign visit.

Travel enthusiasts have always romanticized the idea of venturing outside boundaries and no doubt it is one of the most beautiful ways of knowing the world. However, whenever one goes outside the borders of their own country and visit another, there are numerous international protocols burdened on them. To abide by these and enjoy oneself responsibly in a foreign country, certain things should always be kept in mind. This blog lists a few of the important ones and there are others as well that your international tour packages agency can familiarize you with. Now, let’s take a look at the ones listed here –

 

1.Always Carry Your Passport Around with you 


This is rule 101 when travelling in a foreign country and some could even put you behind bars or deport you for not having the document on you all the time. The passport is your identity and makes sure that the police and law enforcement agents of the country do not mistake you as an illegal immigrant and take legal action against you. It also safeguards you in case of any kind of emergency and lets you take refuge or seek help in your country’s embassy if there is any problem going on in that nation.

 

2.Travel Insurance is a Must Have 


Getting a travel insurance before going for a foreign trip shouldn’t be an option and you should always go for the ones that offer the most elaborate securities in case anything goes wrong. While it may seem like an unwanted expense since more often than not it isn’t necessary, this document can prove to be the safety net in case something goes awry, and you need the means to cover it.

 

3.Keep your Local Contact on Speed Dial


When you visit different countries as a part of international holiday packages, you are introduced to a local contact who takes care of all the arrangements. While that is all well and good, you should make sure that you have his/ her number on speed dial, so that you can contact the person if any emergency need arises. Also, it works in your favor if you behave well with the contact and keep in his/ her good books for the best support abroad.

 

4.Know about Crime Rate and Safety

 
Visiting different cities, it becomes a healthy habit to know about the crime rate and crime prone areas of the place so that you know which streets to avoid. Getting into the wrong turns could spoil your whole experience and crime is a part of every society, no matter how Utopian it looks from the outside. Also, ask your local contact whether you need to keep a curfew hour in mind to avoid any public complications!

 

5.Carry a Handbook of the Local Language at All Times


If you are visiting a country with a language you don’t speak or understand, then carrying a handbook of the same with common phrases could often get you out of sticky situations. Alternatively, you could also get a translation app on your smart phone and use that to communicate with the locals. Remember to always stay calm, because, where there is a will, there is way!

Keep all of these tips in your head and stay responsible even when you enjoy. The whole point of a foreign vacation is to have a gala time and experience a new culture and meet up with people from different parts of the world. Keep your mind open, and take the leap of faith into the unknown – you might find more familiarity there!

Whether one looks at it from a social, economic, or geographical perspective, if there is one thing that the Indian subcontinent can promise, it is diversity! And what better way to showcase that cultural, historic, and geographic diversity than through travel agencies of the country? For those who aren’t able to make sense of the premise, travel agencies Kolkata tour thousands of people every year to different parts of the country and help them imbibe for the immediate time being, the essence of those places.

These agencies have a far greater exposure to the cultural, linguistic, historical, and often economic disparities of the different places. A brilliant example would be when some visits Southern India compared to when they visit the Himalayas in the extreme North or North East. The most famous attractions of Southern states are temples, palaces, and pictures of opulence; not that there is lack of natural beauty but it is a mix of both. 

On the other hand, Northern most and North Eastern states show a completely different picture. The general populace is the working class labour in most villages that are situated in valleys and lie quite far off from each other. The temples have unique deities that pronounce a sense of austerity and hardship rather than that of opulence and regality.

The point being that the only people who see all of it on an almost regular basis and know each of these places as if they were born there, are travel agency associates. As more and more people pick up their bags to travel miles at a stretch with dreams in their eyes, these associates could tell them about the beauty in difference and why it makes the country all the more amazing. 

People who travel, generally do it for their thirst to discover the new, as a hobby, or as a mode of relaxation. In most cases, they have a calmer and more accepting mind set while they are on a journey, than they are likely to be in their regular lives. If during this time, tour packages in India and the travel agency associates pronounce how each of the states are different in most respects and yet very similar when it comes to the core feelings of human compassion and emotion, travellers are likely to see more light in that than in the articles they read on the internet.

If one were to look at it, this country is built on difference than on similarities and yet has prosperously worked as the world’s largest democracy for over 70 years; that in itself is cultural identity of the country to the rest of the world. India doesn’t represent in its name any ethnicity, religion, culture, or socio-tribal identity; it simply means the land of Indus. If our state doesn’t define itself as any particular group identity, then why should we? That is the spirit travel agencies should represent when guide tens of people to different states every day and thousands throughout the year!
