It’s about you
Because no two travellers are the same, Compass makes a great effort to understand the person behind every query that it receives. Each guest is paired off, from the very first interaction, with a dedicated Indian subcontinent specialist.
The specialist works with the guest to keenly to understand her interests and motivations for travel. Every choice the specialist makes in the course of designing the vacation – be it destinations, activities, accommodation or mode of travel – is a function of this understanding.
In short, everything revolves around the guest.
The result is a unique holiday idea that’s tailor made to perfection for the guest. Even when the destination is as vast and diverse as the Indian subcontinent.
The right stuff
As you can perhaps tell, the task is far from easy. the Indian subcontinent is vast, exotic and breathtakingly beautiful. But it can also be chaotic and overwhelming, especially to the first time visitor. Quality of accommodation, food and hygiene may vary significantly from one destination to another. How does Compass then manage to usher its guests through this raucous roller-coaster of a subcontinent in luxury and comfort?
