Wild Card Incentive Travel Destination of the Week: India

Wild Card Incentive Travel Destination of the Week: India

India violates the senses like no other destination. Its rich, colourful culture, opulent Maharaja architecture, extraordinary scenery, drool-worthy cuisine and intoxicating energy, makes it a country you’ll think about long after you leave.

Well connected by multiple airlines, the capital of India – Delhi - is very easily accessible by an 8-9-hour direct flight from London and car, train and flight services are cheap and reliable for internal connections.

From sleeping under the stars in the sweeping serenity of the desert in Jaisalmer and admiring the iconic Wonder of the World, Taj Mahal in Agra to finding your inner yogi on a beach in Goa and staying on a luxurious houseboat on the gentle backwaters of Kerala, India offers an endless amount of experiences to get your employees fighting for a spot on that plane.

India boasts so many iconic sights and regions. It encapsulates the Himalayas, the River Ganges, the Taj Mahal, Bollywood, beaches, ashrams, some of the best food in the world and everything in between. So, an itinerary here can incorporate as much or as little as you’d like depending on your goals and guests.
