Following an overwhelming response to its Grand India Holiday Sale 2018, Thomas Cook India launched its weekend special- the ‘Grand Holiday Carnival’- to capture high potential catchment areas across its prime source markets in India. The Grand Holiday Carnival aims to bring attractive and affordable holidays to Indians, thereby giving them a further impetus to travel.
Thomas Cook’s Grand India Holiday Sale had resulted in a strong growth of 40-45% for its leisure segment. Hence, to maximize on the latent demand and build momentum, the Company plans to go local, with a unique concept of its Grand Holiday Carnival, right at its consumers’ doorstep. Thomas Cook India has strategically selected weekends for this initiative- to drive the entire family to its Grand Holiday Carnival- meet with its holiday experts, benefit from attractive spot offers and book their holidays.
The launch of the Grand India Carnival has been smartly timed to coincide with India’s crucial booking window for the upcoming summer vacations. This phase of this unique customer outreach programme (March 25, 2018) covered 6 key cities – Mumbai, Pune, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore & Kochi.
