TravelMartIndia launches travel portal Vamoose

TravelMartIndia has announced the launch of their new portal Vamoose.in, powered by EL Media, which has group buying operations in Africa and Russia. The site wants to focus on vacations and getaways for deals, offering deep discounts.

Though there are around two dozen large group buying sites active in the country, and each does have a section for getaways, none has focussed exclusively on the vertical, which could be an opening for TravelMartIndia to exploit.

“On offer will be a range of special packages – from weekend getaways to hill-stations to long national and international vacations, and from adventure packages to rest, relaxation and wellness packages,” said Manoj Gursahani, Chairman, TravelMartIndia.

TravelMartIndia CEO Hari Swaminathan added here, “Every day, Vamoose.in will send out a newsletter for new deals. Members will have about a week to purchase their vouchers, and the validity of the deals will be for several months, at least. Consumers get all the price benefits of buying as a group, but retain the flexibility of travelling at their convenience anytime within the validity period.”

Moiz Mumtaz, General Manager - India, Club Med, said, “During off-season times, even obscene discounts would help the travel and leisure industry meet costs. So, I think the group-buying system offers a good deal for everyone concerned.”
