AN IDEA THAT PULLED THE TRIGGER
“Live life with no excuses, travel with no regrets”~Oscar Wilde
Mr. Vikram Prabhu, founder of TravGrub Private limited, an eminent personality in the Travel Industry and an ardent food lover, having worked with some of the top brands in the country and in the Gulf, decided to take a plunge and set up his own company,which believes in selling experiences and providing viable solutions to holiday planning. With a humble beginning as a Travel Representation company established on 1st November 2017, Blue GlobeZ soon flourished making its mark in the travel representation business. The company then ventured into the business of B2C travel and into the food segment, all forming a part of one unified brand “TravGrub Private Limited”. TravGrub boasts of quality service from its experienced team and currently runs 3 successful businesses under its umbrella.
Blue GlobeZ revamped its operations, making it the new- age travel representation company and rebranded itself as ‘BlueGlobeZ Travel Representation Galleria’. The company functions with a novel online tool, that provides seamless transactions between travel agents and suppliers, by bringing them on the same platform, enabling them to interact directly, design packages and clinch deals. It provides an opportunity for its Destination Management Companies to showcase its products to all travel agents in the regions they serve, namely, India and the Gulf countries.
Currently, the company is associated with DMCs from Georgia, U.A.E, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Australia, New Zealand, and East Africa.
Travelling is one of the most liberating experiences, unfortunately, holiday planning is not. As the brand name goes, they are your travel buddies that provide you with the most befitting travel options. They assist in curating holiday packages, operating group tours, booking flights and other travel-related services, bearing in mind the best interest of their customers. They walk with their customers at every step of their holiday planning and strive to make it a memorable experience.
