GTDC presents award to Booking.com 


Panjim, 14 September: Mr. Nilesh Cabral, Chairman, Goa Tourism Development Corporation recently presented an award to Booking.com for their best performance in the category of online Travel Agents. The award was given in recognition for a GTDC sales record, with GTDC hotels recording sales of more than one crore for the financial year 2016-17. The award was accepted by Mr. Jedesh Kozhippalli, Hotels- Senior Account Manager, India and Ms. Simone Pardiwalla, Content Specialist, India on behalf of Booking.com.

GTDC was one of the first tourism boards in India to sign up with Booking.com which is one of the largest travel e-commerce companies in the world. Over the years, a lot of business is being generated through online bookings of GTDC residencies. This year, there was an overwhelming response 
with an increase in the sales revenue. If one recalls, in 2016 Booking.com awarded Calangute Residency with a Guest Review Award for its excellent guest review rating on the Booking.com site.
 
After presenting the award to booking.com, Mr. Cabral said “I congratulate the entire team of GTDC and Booking.com for this huge achievement. Booking.com has been very supportive in giving tourists all the facilities at ease and GTDC is extremely happy to partner with them. The records being achieved by Booking.com is a clear indication of the customer satisfaction and service provided by GTDC and the agency. We hope for a long partnership with Booking.com which will benefit Goa and GTDC. ”
