Anuj Bansal - CEO of Amigos Alliance LLP
Great Companies: Please tell me something about the business and how did you come up with such an idea?
Anuj Bansal: Travel industry is not unique, but has "NO PRICE TAG". That is the major disadvantage, people or often getting overcharged & cheated by online portals. And in case of any issue/ emergency most turn their back. Thus, we planned to come up with a unique plan with 100% verified & transparent service model. We have presence in 16 states & counting in India to make this possible. We verify each & every property/ hotel, by visiting personally before initiating a booking. Also, we arrange direct billing from the hotel & airline to make it 100% transparent.
Great Companies: What are the various services and products provided by your company?
Anuj Bansal: We have 3 verticals in all:
1. Offering BULK bookings to almost top 25 Event Management companies of India for their MICE & wedding bookings.
2. Providing complete E2E travel management services to corporate/ SMEs.
3. Offering B2B services to Travel agents for their hotel & tour package bookings.
Great Companies: Why should one choose you over others in this field?
Anuj Bansal: Service & Transparency.
Great Companies: What are the struggles and challenges you face?
Anuj Bansal: First & foremost is more than 50% businesses are unregistered. In this industry people are not willing to share proper invoice. They don't want to let other person know, who they are dealing with. They just try to save few bugs and leave security at risk.
Great Companies: What do you think are the few main things which are most important for a successful business?
Anuj Bansal: Leadership being connected with your team be easy to work with Open to both positive & negative feedback.
