We've been in business for over twenty five years now.
Nomad Travels was started by Ajay Prakash in 1988. He began his career with Air India, where he first gained his travel experience. Since then, he has come a long way and has played a leadership role in the travel and tourism industry. He's been the President of TAFI (Travel Agents Federation of India), the Deputy Chairman of the WTAAA (World Travel Agents Associations Alliance), has spoken at various industry forums including the European Travel Forum and frequently appears on national television to comment and debate upon aviation and tourism issues.
We have a large number of corporate and leisure travellers across the world. Most importantly, we have a large number of satisfied clients! Our business is almost evenly divided between business/leisure travel out of India and incoming tourism.
We have a competent, sincere and caring staff, many of whom have been with the company over twenty years. We're a tight-knit team, quick to react to any situation. Our suppliers and handling agents have remained unchanged over the last many years and are used to delivering service according to our exacting standards, with an emphasis on detail. In short, we believe in building and retaining relationships and we're in it for the long haul.
We firmly believe that there is a definite need, and a niche, for an organization that delivers what it promises and is equipped to adapt to changing circumstances or missed connections- something that's a part of the inherent unpredictability of travel.
Try us once, you'll come back again!
