Indian travellers are displaying a strong propensity towards online travel bookings, and according to the Google-Bain & Company report, India has the second-highest active Internet user base globally, at 390 Mn (2018). Further to that, the share of online travel booking spends, having increased by 25% in 2018, is anticipated to grow to 35% in 2021. Thomas Cook India’s internal data reiterates this trend, with a 39% surge in demand for its online visa services. To ensure a truly integrated and seamless customer experience, Thomas Cook India’s new Home Collection service was hence introduced to save time, and simultaneously ensure safety in the delivery of valuable visa documents.
Thomas Cook India’s Home Collection service equips its customers with the flexibility to schedule their collection/pick-up date as per their convenience. Additionally, this service allows customers to track the delivery status of their documents on a real-time basis, via a live-tracker feature.
To avail this service, customers merely need to log on to www.thomascook.in/visa, and as part of their visa booking, select the “Collect from Home” option for their documents, and schedule a pick-up for delivery to the closest Thomas Cook India branch. Customers can also track their shipment and receive updates on the delivery status.
Thomas Cook India’s online visa services offer customers visa assistance for 150 countries, including USA, UK, UAE, Singapore, Malaysia, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and several European destinations (France, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Italy, etc.), to name a few.
