To cater to this set of expectations, behaviour and preferences of the next rising wave of consumers, SOTC has curated two innovative products both for outbound as well as the domestic Indian traveller- Great Rail Journeys & Self Drive Holidays.
To capture high potential leisure markets for the outbound Indian traveller, SOTC has launched Great Rail Journeys in collaboration with “Great Rail Journeys” UK's leading operator with over 40 years of experience in arranging holidays by rail.
