G) Quality Control
At Travel Inn we commit to provide the highest quality ground services to your clients. Any feedback given to us by your client will be sent to you as soon as it is received by our office.
We also will resolve any issues that are brought to our attention by the clients whilst on tour without delay and with your assistance if required. A full report of any problems will be sent to you as soon as possible in case of complaint by the client.
H) Health, Safety and Risk Management
We can assure you that every accommodation, transport and service offered by us and used by your clients adheres to all relevant local regulations regarding health and safety, particularly laws governing fire safety and hygiene.
Most of the hotels used by us for your clients are approved hotels by Government of India and therefore adhere to fire safety norms. Fire safety measures are pre requisites for getting approval from the Government to run the establishment commercially.
Some accommodation we use e.g. home stays, village houses, safari lodges etc may not fit the above format – however we still can provide you details of each property, review it with regard to its safety, and advise you of any potential problems. This information is only provided as and when you require it. Where camping takes place we can confirm the type of equipment being used – its quality, age and state of repair on demand.
The vehicles used by us are of a high standard, properly maintained, complying with all local and national transport laws and fully insured for commercial use. We make sure that windscreen wipers and washers are fully operational and windows are free from cracks. Where applicable a seatbelt is supplied for all passengers. Where boats and/or ferries are used they comply with applicable local and national legislation, are licensed to carry passengers and have adequate safety equipment.
Drivers are fully licensed in accordance with all national and local regulations. Our drivers have sound knowledge of English. We have a no smoking policy in all our vehicles and this includes the driver. Our drivers also comply with local restrictions for the maximum number of hours driving and they have sufficient rest if driving long distances (this point is of the utmost importance for the safety of the driver, guide, group leader and passengers). If a breakdown occurs, we arrange a replacement vehicle at the earliest opportunity to perform the service at no additional cost and avoid any significant disruption to the itinerary. All vehicles do carry a spare wheel, which is in good condition, and first aid kit.
If we arrange meals in local restaurants, then, we/our associate offices inspect and monitor all venues before the visit/tour to ensure that clients are not exposed to illness or infection as a result of bad hygiene, or poorly maintained equipment and facilities. There are also adequate and clean toilet facilities. However we do not guarantee compliance on roadside amenities. The hygiene standards at the roadside restaurants/ takeaways/ en route facilities stops are generally lacking.
Public Liability Insurance and Indemnity
Presently there is limited liability insurance in our country. It is therefore strongly advised and a must that all clients travelling to India should have proper and adequate insurance cover including air evacuation.
You will be informed immediately of any incident or accident involving injury, harm or death to any of your client, so proper procedures can be enacted and followed from your end.
All guides used by us for your clients and groups speak excellent English/ Language and are experts in the local area. Local guides accompany clients on activities and excursions, which are operated to the highest operational standards, including equipment and risk management.
We also ensure any information regarding your clients, itineraries or future plans is kept confidential, between ourselves so we can grow our business together.
