A Travel Duet Eyes Expansion in the Luxury Travel Space

A Travel Duet eyes expansion

New hires at the core level of ATD and ATC signal holistic overhaul to meet a marked increase in luxury travel market demand

As A Travel Duet and A Travel Circle – the leading luxury avenues of alluring, experiential travel for outbound Indian travelers – continue to expand across different markets, domestically and internationally, so are the teams behind them.

Given that we work with exceptional brands and partners to design experiences that consistently redefine the world of curated travel, it only makes sense that we strengthen our core team with professionals that mirror our unrelenting passion for perfecting personalized journeys. Each individual hired harkens back to the fundamental pillars we built ATD upon a decade ago, bringing expert industry knowledgefrom travel journalists and event planners to premium content curators and veteran growth strategiststo our experiences; plus these wonderful wayfarers were bitten by the travel bug out of the womb.

Putting these well-traveled boots on the ground adds more than a pep to our step as we cater to our growing list of Preferred Partners, an increase in Milestone Celebration Getaways, as well as an increase in the consumption of Meaningful Experiences and Destinations. They transform our ability to rise with the heightened demand for travel that’s not only high-toned, but elevated in myriad manners: from an increased focus on health and wellbeing to going beyond what’s de rigueur and reacting to the reality that travel is what you make it, and that our purpose is to craft magnificence out of what brings our clients true meaning. Our teams are coming together to create a legacy, a bequest for Indians who want the best of the world at their behest.

This surge onwards is best summed up by the words of Founder and CEO Pritish Shah: “2022 was the year of reset and reboot. We complete 10 years in 2023 and have big plans lined up to further grow our luxury outbound travel business. We overhauled all our three brands last year, and look forward to continuing our expansion plans that were paused due to the pandemic. Over the past decade, we’ve worked on reinforcing our fundamentals – cultivating and investing in our great team, building upon our network of luxury suppliers, and enhancing our preferred partner network with 18+ global hospitality brands, such as, Four Seasons, Marriott, Rosewood, and Oetker, to name a few. The growth story of ATD 2.0 continues to focus on getting the right talent on board and working with an amazing team to achieve our goals.”
