‘Tripshope’ takes Shikara online

Anantnag: A Kashmir based company has come up with a full-fledged travel portal with a mobile application claiming it was the first such venture in Jammu and Kashmir.
One Point Ticketing Private Limited is taking the Shikara, the emblem of Kashmir Tourism, online.
“Tripshope” is a travel portal and a mobile application at par with the major travel players across India.
“With love from Kashmir,” is the message that flashes on your mobile screen soon after the ‘Tripshope’ application is launched. The makers, One Point Ticketing Private Limited, however insist that the focus was on the home state, Jammu and Kashmir, for now.
The founder of the company Adil Sathoo, a 32 year old Anantnag based businessman says that the major aim of the company was to put an end to air ticketing woes of Kashmiri people, with an added focus on the mobile application.
Sathoo has been in the travel industry for over a decade and has made a gradual shift from using services of travel portals based in other parts of India to coming up with his own venture.
“Apart from taking the Kashmir’s travel industry to the next level, my aim with investing in this venture is to do away with the dependence we had in the travel sector,” Sathoo told Kashmir Reader.
He said that the Kashmiri traveller can now enjoy hassle free air travel.
Sathoo’s company promises the lowest air fares in the industry without any convenience fee being charged from the customer.
“You can go to our app or our website and check for yourself. I guarantee lowest airfares in the industry,” Sathoo said.
Besides, Sathoo maintains, the hassles of reaching a customer care number or getting refunds will get all the more sorted with his venture.
“We are based locally with local people engaged in the work we do. That means we are reachable for our customers round the clock,” he said.
The company right now employs over twenty young people in Anantnag and Srinagar.
“We have a Business to Business (B to B) module as well, where in we have many people associated with us,” Sathoo said.
