Trip to AndamanWe were so amazed to discover Andaman. But Andaman Discover (Tourism Agency) had another plan to thwart or disappoint us. It was four days of exploration plan. Initially, we had a warm welcome in the airport. The driver even carried our bag to the car. Everything was splendid until we paid the remaining package amount. We had the chance to explore all the places according to itinerary except certain places due to bad weather condition but the way they carried us is extremely deplorable. They were so keen to drop us to the hotel with some reasons in hand. May be I think they were very keen on discovering Andaman with their friends. Serving Breakfast & Dinner was a part of itinerary. We were kept hungry for two continuous days without serving breakfast. On questioning them about this issue, their response was odious. I contacted about this issue to the Andaman discover office staff, but again no response from them. Another critical issue is time management. Every single time we waited for more than 20 minutes for their vehicle. And every single time they were late but left early with some reasons. Customer satisfaction is the most important thing for the tourism agencies. When you miss the most critical factor how can you run the show ? Instead of seeing blue in Andaman, we were feeling blue . Especially because of the experience with you. Expecting a valid reply from you. Regards, Srinath. NM

Trip to AndamanWith the ongoing fraud by various pseudo / non existent online travel agencies, I was skeptical as to whom to trust and chose for my honeymoon trip which I planned it to andaman. I have been through various renowned websites and upon my analysis, I had decided to go with travel triangle. They serve as a platform where, numerous travel agencies allied with them will provide us quotes suiting to our requirements. We can choose any number of agencies, do as many modifications to the itinerary as required, can compare the quotes and negotiate regarding the same and can finally conclude with the agency that gives us the best quote in all aspects. The best part is that they give us an all inclusive package (flights, hotels, cabs, entry tickets). Also, Travel triangle, on their behalf, had assigned a trip advisor with whom we can get all the queries cleared. I personally had been very much satisfied with the quote mentioned by Anitha ji from Jubilant travels. I had many conversations with her and had made necessary changes to my itinerary for which she had always responded positively and did her best. The amount will be paid in installments and the amount will be credited to travel triangle and not the agent. The amount to be paid in each installment can also be adjusted as per our convenience. We get the vouchers ( ex: hotel) proportional to the installments paid. Despite all the above, as this is my first trip through a travel agency who are totally unknown, I still had some doubt at some corner in my mind. But once we had started our vacation, we gradually realised that Anitha ji had planned every day schedule in a perfect way. Her team had been very punctual, honest and supportive all through the journey. The cabs were well maintained, cab drivers were well mannered and none had asked for tips. Overall I can say, we can trust Travel Triangle for any kind of vacation planning. Anitha from jubilant travels proved me that she can give us the best plan at a reasonable cost. (Note: the traveler must openly share their requirements with the agent and only then we can get the proper itinerary i.e., ideal planning is possible only by proper communication from either parties). Finally, I am very much thankful to Travel Triangle, their trip advisor Mr Abuzar and Anitha from Jubilant travels for giving us beautiful memories. Kalapathar beach - where we can capture amazing pics Radhanagar beach - best place to enjoy in beach waters Red skin island - for the best view of coral ecosystem
Trip to AndamanWe are happy with the trip but wanna mention that your cab drivers are only doing there job just like they have to make us reach at a particular palce they did so. But the don't even think that is that time is suitable to visit at that place or not. We found such thing in havelock second day. And if we asked to take us to some other place they refuse to do so. And if agreed there costing was very high. Our travel agent planned our holiday in the best way. Hotel room, food, place everything was perfect and according to our wish. Each and every moment is memorable. Thankyou
