Generally, hobbies and interests dies with time. For career, opportunities, work pressure, settled life etc. one gives up his dreams. Its a rare art to make your passion come live in form of something meaningful which not only makes you happy but also help others in one way or another. This art is normally referred to as “Entrepreneurship”.
To Hari Nair, now founder and CEO of HolidayIQ.com, travel was the dope.#
Hari had been fascinated with the world of travel, tourism & hospitality for a very long time. This hobby led to the formation of traveller community HolidayIQ.com.
Today,HolidayIQ has a comprehensive coverage of 2000 Indian tourism destinations & 32,000 Indian accommodation listed (covering luxury resorts to budget home-stays & from boutique hotels to adventure camps).
While 12000 of these hotels are bookable online through HolidayIQ.com’s partner online travel agencies, the remaining are bookable through a big national network of traditional (offline) travel agencies.
Does it provides transactional base facilities or work on affiliate tie-ups?
Hari Nair: We do not transact with customers directly. The sanctity of our reviews lies in the fact HolidayIQ.com does not sell any products to users. HolidayIQ.com is not a travel agency and does not do bookings at all. HolidayIQ.com is also not partially or fully owned by any travel agency or hotel chain or any other travel industry player. Therefore HolidayIQ.com is fully independent and can provide travellers with truthful information not affected by any requirements to sell specific travel products. The only commercial service done by HolidayIQ.com is to route users to various Travel Agents (both online & offline) who can help them make bookings of hotels or packages.
