2019 - The Year That Was!

Jan 08, 05:15 PM
Welcome to the 11th episode and the final episode of Season 2 of the Mark and Embark Podcast by ScoutMyTrip. The host for this episode is Vineet Rajan, the co-founder of ScoutMyTrip. 

When we conceptualized the whole idea behind ScoutMyTrip, the only thing on our minds was to make travel a more enjoyable experience for everyone. But, as we delved further, we learned more from our customers as to what they were looking for – more than a mere navigation map. They seek information like offbeat locations, restaurants, hygienic restrooms, home stays and more. Well, with endless miles in our trip history and expertise of the same, we created a trip planner that solved the purpose.

Today, we areIndia’s first subscription-based travel planner where we offer curated experiences, Scout subscriptions and a personalized trip for each of our customers. Our planner is powered by Scouts who are travel experts spread across India, Nepal and Bhutan. 

The year 2019 saw over 3000 travelers buy our subscription plans. A majority of the subscriptions came from Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi and Pune – which was close to 75%. Of the remaining – Hyderabad and Chennai were leading. 
It has been an incredible year of travel, and we thought of doing a little recap for our story and also sharing insights on how people are traveling.

About how travel experts can help you on a better vacation!

Did you Indians spent over 900 million hours last year planning vacations? And even after spending so much time planning, they are still caught with uncertainties that come with travel - how are the roads, where are the good restaurants, will my family be comfortable and so on. So why not leave the planning to the experts; and travel worry free. All you need to do is Hire a Scout who does all this for you, and provides online virtual trip assistance while you are traveling.
