“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all”. The definition of travel has changed due to the pandemic situation across the world. Although people have witnessed several ups and downs due to the deadly virus, they still desire a break, a trip – a tour or travel.
While consumers are willing to continue exploring and seeking new thills, the industry has seen many seismic changes over last eighteen months. It is a new landscape where new ideas will blossom. TravelLive is the ideal partner for the wanderlusters, it has the unique opportunity to present the travellers new and fresh connections worldwide.
TravelLive, a digital-age travel start-up, was launched Today in the esteemed presence of film personality Sabyasachi Chakrabarti, Adviser & Brand Ambassador, noted actors – Mithu Chakrabarty, Ridhima & Gaurav Chakrabarty, the Brand Ambassadors of TravelLive along with gorgeous Raima Sen, the Actor, along with Mahuya Sengupta, Founder Director, Pinaki Mitra, Founder & CEO, and Ritam Saha – Manager, Passenger & Cargo Services, India, Nepal & Bhutan, The International Air Transport Association (IATA).
A recent survey shows that 42% of travellers want to continue traveling globally, while 20% of travellers are ready to take even more international trips than they did prior to the crisis. Despite an extensive pause on travel due to the pandemic, consumer hunger for travel prevails. TravelLive predicts a shift in travellers’ demographics, with younger travellers – relatively less affected with the effects of the pandemic – being more amenable to international travel. Aged travellers will attempt a mix of experiences – travelling to relatively safer geographies and seeking digital alternatives for places which are risk-prone.
Speaking at the occasion Mr. Pinaki Mitra, Founder & CEO, TravelLive said, “TravelLive offers unexplored places, uncharted territories, novel experiences. Spending the night in Glass-top igloos or in Ice Hotel in Finland to experience the most amazing natural phenomena – Aurora Borealis, sailing around Mirissa Harbour in Sri Lanka to watch Blue Whales swim by, or jungle safaris in the rainforests of Borneo among Orangutang families – we offer the exotic and the extraordinary.”
During the launch event, Mr. Sabyasachi Chakrabarti, Adviser & Brand Ambassador of TravelLive said, “My love for nature and forests is well known. I also have passionate interest in wildlife photography. The TravelLive team is very close to our family. I am taking an active interest in designing some of the trips, especially those around forests and wildlife. Mithu and I as well as Ridhhima and Gaurav will lead the tour of Untamed Borneo that TravelLive will conduct. With TravelLive, our wait for wildlife safaris is over.”
