Hilton launches unique programme for Indian travelers

Published on : Thursday, November 29, 2018

Driven by rising Indian footfall in European destinations, hotel chain Hilton has launched a unique programme called Namaste for Indian travelers catering to destination weddings, corporate meetings and events and Bollywood shoots.

 

Hilton said that the programme has been designed to bring about a truly tailored experience for groups travelling from India to Europe. The programme includes incentives like permissions to bring your own cooks, flexible cancellation policies, complimentary suites for brides and grooms on their weddings.

 

Approximately, 25 million Indian tourists currently visit overseas for professional or personal reasons. Europe has an estimated market share of about 20 % among Indian outbound departures. The UNWTO predicts that India will account for 50 million outbound tourists by 2020.

 

Fiona Robson, senior director of sales operations, Europe at Hilton said, “Huge population, rising incomes, improving infrastructure, among others – offer a strong growth opportunity. India is one of the biggest growth markets, with Indians now preferring luxury and overseas stays with their improving financial status.”

 

Robson further added, “We pride ourselves in understanding the needs of our Indian guests and ensuring that we deliver a truly memorable stay; this precisely is the thinking behind our “Namaste” programme, our uniquely designed programme for group travel.”
Indians are now looking forward to explore offbeat destinations and thus Hilton is looking to cater to Indian groups opting to travel to destinations like Malta, Budapest, Cologne, Baku, besides frequent destinations like Vienna, Prague, and London.
