The genesis of un[travel] is linked to the co-founders’ personal travel experiences. Sunando Sen, a passionate traveller, firmly believes that travel is a vitally important part of life, as it provides relief and broadens one’s perception & understanding, thus transforming us. Being globetrotters, Sunando and his co-founders have travelled to destinations across the world. While planning their expeditions they saw that there was a clear gap in the market – as there was no travel portal that offered customized, differentiated holidays while providing a high level of service & destination knowledge. Also, most online travel agencies focused on the transactional products like air tickets and business hotel bookings. The ones that were selling holiday packages, mostly offered standardized group departures with routine sightseeing to popular locations. Moreover, these agencies lacked quality control. Observing this lacuna in the travel industry, the team decided that there is a dire need of a player who can address the requirements of a discerning traveller. Thus, un[travel] was born.
Led by a team of twenty travel enthusiasts, un[travel] is one of the very few travel portals globally that
offers highly customizable, differentiated holidays across the world for discerning travellers. With their curated experiences that ensure high quality, best-in-class customer service and in-depth knowledge of the locations offered, the company endeavours to be the first choice for travellers seeking the best customized holiday experiences across the globe at a competitive price.
Explicating on the inception journey, Sunando Sen, Co-Founder, un[travel] speaks, “Most of the travel operators proffer standardized holiday itineraries with very little scope of customization or personalization. Their approach is ‘one size, fits all’ and the activities and accommodation suggested are mostly run of the mill. Identifying these issues, we at un[travel] came up with a technology driven portal that lets travellers plan trips based on their personal choices, itineraries & interests.”
