Utell® Hotels & Resorts, the representation business unit of Pegasus Solutions and the world’s largest and most experienced sales, marketing and distribution service for hotels, has appointed Aman Travels Limited as its official sales representative in India, to manage demand generation for the Utell portfolio.
Aman Travels has a successful history of working with Pegasus Solutions on the financial services side, primarily focused on enrolling travel agents onto Pegasus’ commission payments processing program. The expansion of this relationship to official sales representative for Utell on the demand side, means Aman will take responsibility for relationships with local and regional travel agencies, TMCs (travel management companies), corporations and consortia groups.
Deepak Narula, MD, Aman Travels said: “Aman has been in the hotel booking business for over a decade now and is well placed within the marketplace to ensure successful growth in the Indian market, generating even better revenues for Utell member hotels. As a result, we have planned a series of targeted marketing campaigns to promote Utell properties in India, designed to reap significant market share. This includes using our network of local representatives across the country to reach out to large TMC’s and independent agencies.”
