The platform introduces travellers to new and genuine experiences of each destination besides commercial spots.

It will be that time of the year where key travel agents from South India will be on TheOlta.com platform to share the best offers on the table.
Speaking about the organization, Mr. Anand Menon, Founder, TheOlta.com, states, “theolta.com has been developed as the ultimate marketplace for everything related to travel. Here we dont sell anything, we just connect those elements of the travel industry to the end consumer. Much like the major e-commerce players in the industry, we are in fact the first platform to bring travel to the end consumers. We observed that the supply chain of the industry other than hotels, resorts and other places of accommodation have not been well represented in the recent past and this has led to the entire supply chain loosing out in this digital wave that swept the industry. We believe every destination has a story to tell, a story waiting to be explored, and a story to experience. I am glad to introduce a concept that can support the domestic travel agents and anybody & everybody in the travel & tourism supply chain. Travel & Tourism is one of the largest employment generators in the India, and there was no platform that connected service providers like taxi & bus operators, guides, adventure and activity driven organisations to the end consumer. The Olta ensures the large chunk of people who have been left out also gets a chance to be at the forefront. We plan to expand the featured destinations to other parts of the country soon. We hope to seek a positive response for this initiative and see the platform grow.”
Founded on 3rd September 2020, theolta.com is a communication, advertising and marketing platform for the travel industry. It aims to combine the expertise, trust and knowledge of offline travel partners and club it with technology, marketing and brand management experiences of the team at theolta.com as it develops the ultimate travel search engine. theolta.com is not a travel agent, and does not sell anything on the site, but brings out the essence of the destination through its partners and associates that it works with. Directions, strategies and inputs by the team at OLTA will drive the communications, marketing strategies and brand management of partners and destinations.
