Postcard Travel Club Joins Hands with RARE India in a Strategic Partnership to Champion Conscious Luxury Travel and Strengthen its Footprint

RARE India

Postcard Travel Club, an inclusive community of conscious luxury travellers, travel designers, storytellers, and boutique properties that collectively advance responsible tourism, has formed a strategic alliance with RARE India, a collection of boutique hotels, wildlife lodges, and retreats across India, Bhutan, and Nepal. This partnership unites two pioneers advancing responsible tourism, and is further enhancing their commitment to environmental sustainability and community engagement through more conscious travel practices.

Commenting on the collaboration, Mr. Amit Jaipura, Founder and CEO at Postcard Travel Club said, “Postcard Travel Club is delighted to announce a new alliance with RARE India as we look to advance our purpose of bringing together all stakeholders advancing conscious luxury travel. This collaboration has proved to be a major milestone for the forward journey of Postcard and has enabled us to reach one step closer to our goal of onboarding  500+ partners in 50+ countries by the end of 2024.

“RARE and the community is about authentic destination stories, always believing that tourism at its best should build the destination and benefit the community. With this collaboration, we further aim to spread awareness and belief in responsible tourism,” added Ms. Shoba Rudra, Founder Partner at RARE India.

Together, Postcard Travel Club and RARE India aim to redefine conscious luxury travel by promoting boutique properties that prioritise the planet and its people, ensuring that every journey leaves a positive impact. This partnership allows Postcard members to experience the transformative power of conscious luxury travel that is being promoted by the properties represented by Rare India.

Publishing the property profiles and the unique experiences on the Postcard platform as part of the collaboration, the brand has on boarded over 90  properties spanning 19 Indian states under the RARE India collective. Unique adventures such as tracking tigers in Kanha, spotting snow leopards in Ladakh, and enjoying serene beach retreats in Kerala. Every RARE property actively contributes to planet-sensitive endeavours, embracing practices such as reducing single-use plastic, ensuring responsible garbage disposal, conserving water and energy, and safeguarding the intricate tapestry of nature and biological diversity.

Postcard Travel Club also launched “Postcard Search Engine”, a unique interests-based search engine last month that helps conscious luxury travellers find immersive experiences and boutique properties that match their personal interests and values.

With a mission to build the world’s largest community of conscious travelers, Amit Jaipuria, a serial entrepreneur, founded Postcard Travel Club in 2020. Driven by his passion for travel and the difficulty he faced in finding immersive experiences online, Amit came up with the idea to fill this gap for like-minded travelers. His journey led him to the Transformational Travel Council, where he embraced the principles of responsible tourism and that led to shaping the philosophy behind the Postcard Travel Club today.

Under Amit’s leadership, Postcard Travel Club has grown significantly, driven by a dedicated team of eight remote-working freelancers and digital nomads. Amit has successfully developed a business model that is entirely bootstrapped and relies on subscription-based revenue. His approach focuses on building an inclusive community and fostering collaborative growth, which has led to strong partnerships with brands like Rare India, The Transformational Travel Council, The Long Run and a network of over 250 boutique properties in more than 35 countries.

Amit’s experience in the Indian startup ecosystem and his belief in the power of social networking and storytelling have taught him invaluable lessons about bootstrapping, scaling businesses, product development, and team growth from his previous entrepreneurial ventures. He applies these lessons to Postcard Travel Club, aiming to create a community that includes conscious travelers, travel designers, storytellers, and boutique properties, all committed to advancing responsible tourism. Amit’s vision for the brand is to embody a global lifestyle that promotes responsible tourism and mindfulness, encouraging travelers to become conscientious global citizens.

Amit holds a double major in Finance and Entrepreneurship from Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1999, which he completed in 1999. Then in 2001, he authored one of the first patents on social networking technologies in the USA and India. An avid sports enthusiast, Amit played tennis at the university level and enjoys football and cricket. He loves spending time with family and his eight-year-old son, often traveling and exploring unique places and cultures with them and travels whenever possible with his family and eight-year-old son. His personal life and choices are influenced deeply by the ethos of the Postcard Travel Club focusing on holistic, mindful, and responsible living.
