Looking to the future, honouring the past – this seems to be the mantra driving TravelTriangle, India’s leading and fastest growing holiday marketplace. Having maintained its young, vibrant, energetic, employee-centric outlook as it grew from a 4-person operation to a team of over 450 individuals, the company recently upped its ‘dynamic’ quotient by moving to a bigger, plusher office. Situated in sector 18 Gurugram, the swankier two-storey office emulates the brand’s bold and innovative persona with a touch of elegance. The work space will house employees from its previous workplaces in Noida and Gurugram and will be the hub of TravelTriangle’s operations in the NCR.
TravelTriangle’s latest office is aligned with its philosophy of lean and free-flowing culture as also exhibited in their spacious set-up. The sprawling office, however, goes beyond mere functionality. It employs a creative décor adorned and personalised with paintings made by TravelTriangle employees. This not only nurtures an engaging and immersive environment where people enjoy working, but also maximises productivity and innovativeness.
Even the meeting rooms are designed keeping in mind TravelTriangle’s core proposition of serving delightful holidays and are themed around popular destinations like Gujarat, Kerala, Greece, South Africa and so on. Kites, puppets, and dandiyas pepper the Gujarat Room, while the Paris room’s dreamy interior showcases the iconic Eiffel Tower.
Speaking on the inauguration, Mr. Sankalp Agarwal, Co- founder & CEO, TravelTriangle, commented, “Our new office is designed to reflect our organisation’s flat hierarchy. We believe that good work happens when done together and without unnecessary roadblocks to innovation, which is why the workspace is kept approachable and open. At TravelTriangle, we are creating a company and product for the future. That our team members are integral to our success is demonstrated in the way they took part in decorating the office walls and meeting rooms, lending their creativity to make the work space more personalised and cosy. The opening of our latest office in Gurugram is our way of celebrating the company’s recent spate of growth while providing an even more fulfilling work environment to our employees.”
What’s more, TravelTriangle’s decision to shift into a new office follows close on heels of the company’s recent profitable status. Thanks to its differentiated offerings and customer-centric approach, the start-up has been registering prolific growth over the last few quarters in terms of its user base, travel partners, holidays booked etc. It was this high-growth, high-potential proposition that helped it secure $10 million investment in its Series B round, led by Singapore-based RB investments in February 2017.
“It is unusual for an internet-based start-up in the consumer sector to talk profitability. However, the end of financial year 2016-17 brought yet another milestone achievement for us with a boost in profitable unit economics through the year, aided by rapid growth. The company’s achievements are a direct result of team efforts and at TravelTriangle, we believe in putting our employees at the centre of all growth pursuits,” Sankalp added.
Recognised for its unique technology-driven holiday solutions, TravelTriangle has grown exponentially over the past few years, achieving profitability and securing a gross marginal value of Rs. 350 crores as of March 2017. In 2016, the company also became Contribution Margin Net Marketing (CMNM) positive in 6 key geographies across the country. TravelTriangle currently has a team of 450+ people and a network of 650+ expert travel agents across the globe. It has successfully served over 20 lakhs plus travelers visiting the website every month with 65+ destinations on its platform, earning 95% positive customer reviews.
