SLV TOURS & TRAVELS Has been Recognized As Most Promising Tours & Travel Company of the Year - 2023, Hubli by Business Mint
SLV Tours and Travels, based in Hubli, was founded in 2016 by an ambitious individual. Starting with just a mobile recharge service, the founder relied on their own determination and support from their parents to initiate the business. Despite facing opposition from others who urged them to pursue a government job, the founder remained focused on their dream of establishing their own business.
In 2013, the founder took the leap and began their journey into entrepreneurship. Initially, they offered mobile recharge services, providing customers with the convenience of a single call to get their recharges done. As the business grew, the founder built a strong market reputation and customer base by personally visiting clients' homes, sometimes collecting payments on a credit basis.
The first taste of success came with a profit of Rs 435/-. Although seemingly modest, this milestone held great significance for the founder, representing the realization of their dreams and hard work.
After three years of running the recharge service, the founder expanded their venture by launching "SLV TOURS & TRAVELS" in 2016. The travel agency now serves more than 600 clients, catering to both Domestic and International Tour Packages. Through strategic partnerships with major brands like IRCTC, Indigo, Akasa Air, and prominent hotel chains such as TGI group of Hotels, Royal Orchid, Taj, and more, SLV Tours and Travels has become a one-stop solution for various travel needs.
The company's success can be measured by several major milestones:
On February 9th, 2019, SLV Tours and Travels organized a Group Tour to Dubai with 50 passengers.
On May 19th, 2022, a group of 45 passengers enjoyed a tour to Mysore & Coorg organized by SLV Tours and Travels for KLETECH.
