XcelTrip Reaches out to Hotel Industry in During Crisis
Kathmandu – Ongoing corona-virus pandemic has discouraged the number of tourists traveling around the world including Nepal. In this difficult time of the Nepalese tourism market, XcelTrip has started the two-pronged approach to reach out to the targeted marketing to support the Visit Nepal 2020mission campaign as well as to educate the hoteliers on the importance of digital marketing and online booking.
XcelTrip has been making door-to-door orientation for hoteliers about the importance of online booking and social media campaigns targeting national and international tourists encompassing the enlisted hotels of Nepal. At this critical juncture, Xceltrip discussed a wide spectrum of possibilities in generating demand with appropriate supplies through its state of art technology booking engine having massive outreach to the global marketplace.
As a part of series of such events, XcelTrip Nepal, Nepal’s First Online Travel Aggregator, organized an orientation and interaction program in Sauraha, Chitwan at Jungle Safari Lodge on February 18, 2020, to brief the hoteliers about the importance of being in online travel platform.
In this program, Co-Founder and Country Director of XcelTrip Nepal Aditya Baral spoke about current Nepal’s tourism tren and its correlation with online platforms like XcelTrip. He further opined “How technology is forcing our industry to go digital and how our robust technology would empower the travel industry of Nepal. He further elaborated; our booking engine would instigate the domestic traveler’s and help in the process of cross country traveling easier. Our importance increases when there is turmoil in international movements like today (Virus). It is a proper mechanism that even the Government follow in order to reach to the target audience. Unlike other booking engines, we reach door to door to tempt them to enlist in order to make our data stronger so that our indigenous entrepreneurs are more strengthened to deal with foreign competitors.
Addressing the program, Gyanendra Khadka, Founder and CEO of XcelTrip, said that this booking engine is customized enough to deal with each and every hotel need. Xceltrip outnumbers other booking engines like booking.com, Agoda, etc, in terms of consolidating the market forces with its unique engine based on blockchain technology. Now onwards, every Nepal based entrepreneurs would have immense leverage to deal, settle and reinforce the bond talking in Nepali but doing business internationally. He outlined that since it is based in Nepal, it caters to the interest of domestic tourists as well which could be beneficial for hotels and resorts when international tourist arrivals are not promising. He also spoke about the importance of digital marketing in diversifying existing products in Chitwan and other tourists’ hub. He further said “in short span of time, our feature, delivery, and the network would envelope the industry like cobweb” creating a milestone in the “win-win” theory.
The XcelTrip offers 0% Commission to the hotels and resorts throughout Visit Nepal 2020 and 10% from 2021 onward. This would provide much leeway to settle their payments and other arrears within Nepal with more customized extended services. He further opined that Xceltrip would retain the foreign currency and help in building a circular economy.
