Smartstay plans offbeat adventure holidays

Published on : Friday, April 15, 2016 has delivered memorable long holidays, weekend getaways, adventure tours, events and international vacations for thousands of travel enthusiasts. With over 3,000 hand-picked locations and 30,000+ rooms, we provide offbeat adventure experiences like family camping (“famping”), leisure options like relaxed family outings and unique stays like Wellness retreats in incredible destinations across India and beyond.

Our USP: we are a single platform for experiential properties catering to one-day, weekend and long holidays. We identify and onboard unique stay options, curating lesser-known destinations, and completing the loop with professional activity providers and transport service providers. All our long holiday itineraries are vetted by our 75 travel experts (not travel agents). We cater to all experiential customer requirements from day activities to weekends to long holidays, special interest based events etc.

How are you different from the other travel portal in India:

Due to an unbeatable combination of the below:
• Only Smartstay matches evolving customer requirements with thought-leadership and continually innovative travel products to deliver customer delight
• Smartstay provides a unique blend of curated destinations, unparalleled local insight and expert customer assistance
• Over 400 cities and towns across India, Kyrgyzstan and Turkey. More coming soon!

Our Differentiator: other portals are either in stay directory or enquiry-based holidays. We believe in an “x plus” model, where along with stay options we also provide travel experts, activity providers and transport providers so that travelers can make informed decisions and decide on their experiential holiday at one place.

We have curated unique stays along with activity providers, with a layer of our travel experts vetting the itineraries. We allow experts to create their own special interest event so that like-minded guests can book online and go. We’ve recently tied up with Zoomcar for road travel journeys, and are constantly innovating on new experiential holidays across destinations and themes.

Our Core business parameters are healthy, market-tested and inherently profitable, which also differentiates us from numerous other players in the marketplace.
