STIC: GSA for Saltours International
Saltours International has appointed STIC Travel Group as their exclusive India GSA effective December 2014. Established in 1977, Saltours, since 1998, has been distributing and selling hotel bookings and tour packages to travel agents and tour operators in India.
This new collaboration enables Saltours to leverage on STIC’s domain knowledge and its national reach across India to further grow its business in the region. Representing Saltours is perfectly in line with STIC’s view of future expansion plans in the non-air segment.
Speaking on the occasion, Imran Salehjee, Group Managing Director, Saltours International said, “It’s with great pleasure that we announce the appointment of STIC Travel Group as Saltours International’s official GSA in India, both companies share the same values and have been pioneers in the travel industry for 40 years. With this partnership, we aim to deliver added value to the travel trade via SALVATION, Saltour’s new online booking platform, providing FIT and dynamic rates of our vast inventory of hotels around the world. I would like to thank the travel agents in India for their support.”
Subhash Goyal, Chairman, STIC Travel Group said, “We are very excited to represent a dynamic and competitive brand like Saltours in India. Saltours pioneered the concept of B2B distribution of hotels in India. We hope to build on this foundation to further revolutionise hotel booking solutions offered to travel agents and tour operators with the new booking platform “SALVATION”. We will work hard to provide quality service to travel agents and tour operators not only in the main metros but also in Tier- II and Tier- III cities across India. The new Saltours booking system will further empower the agent to increase their income and efficiently service their clients thereby building a robust business.”
