Mumbai-based Namaste Tourism organised ‘Travel Journey 1’ where it educated travel trade members on the tourists destinations and tourism opportunities in Hungary, Central Europe and Southern Europe. Present at the event were Dr. Norbert Revai-Bere, Consul General - Mumbai, Consulate General of Hungary; Imola Szabo-Takacs, Consul - Mumbai, Consulate General of Hungary; Mehmet Akay, GM, Southern & Western India, Turkish Airlines and Yusuf Hussain, Bollywood Actor. Around 70 people from the travel fraternity participated in the event.

Talking about the event, Subhash Motwani, Founder Director, Namaste Tourism, said,  “We organised this event to increase awareness among the travel agents about the offbeat destinations in Hungary and Central and Southern Europe like Szentendre and Esztergom in Hungary, Banska Bystrica in Slovakia, Wroclaw and Poznan in Poland, Zadar and Dubrovnik in Croatia, and Bosnia & Herzegovina, etc. It is important to evolve with time and explore new destinations and break the glitch of traditionally popular destinations, and Namaste Tourism is working extensively towards educating and promoting tourism in these destinations which don’t even have their tourism offices in India.”

Revai-Bere commented that the interest of Indian audiences is growing for Hungary. “In 2015 we issued 2,700 visas to Indian travellers from the Mumbai Consulate and this year the number has crossed 7,000. With Hungary and Central European destinations growing popular because of Bollywood, MICE and destination weddings, we are assured of welcoming more number of Indian visitors in future.”   

Turkish Airlines operates two daily flights from Mumbai and Delhi to Budapest, Hungary via Istanbul. Akay said that Turkish Airlines is in talks with concerned authorities to come up with more flights to ease access to Europe for Indian travellers.
