Season’s Greetings!

This festive season, we present to you a whole new version of the ‘India Update’. An endeavor to give you lots more information on Incredible India, this edition brings to you updates on new products, hotels, aviation, festivals and monuments of India.

We are also delighted to share with you that something very close to my heart the 'Le Passage Travel Foundation – ‘Shaping Lives’ was formally launched this last week. This initiative will focus our energies towards giving back to society. We endeavour to use tourism as a bridge between the givers and the under privileged in India. We will share with each of you more details on the foundations works shortly.

There’s lots more excitement here for you … a first in India …we are all set to induct a whole new fleet of ‘Retro Ambassadors’ into our systems, your clients can now enjoy self-drive tours, romancing India at their own pace with our professional road book and GPS to guide them through in these elegant cars!

We wish you and your families a Merry Christmas & a very Happy New Year!

Most Warmly
