  Overview:

Girikand set foot in the field of Travel and Tourism in 1977. Girikand has grown over the years and has expanded its services to cover all the major aspects of travel and tourism. What began as an urge to share the varied experiences of the world with customers has taken the shape of a responsible and trusted name in travel, respected all over the world.

Girikand has adapted to the needs of the tourists and has developed its capabilities to serve tourists and business travelers alike. We handle tours to various destinations both within India and abroad, we are the most trusted name for Honey Moon Holidays. We are the largest retail ticketing agent in Maharashtra and have an independent department dedicated to documentation like passports, visas, foreign exchange and insurance. We are on the approved list of agents approved by many leading countries for submission of Visa documents.

In 2000 Girikand decided to diversify and become a service provider by offering services in the car and coach rental business. This timely decision was in keeping with the needs of the state and was rewarded by a phenomenal growth in business.

Girikand Holidays Pvt Ltd deals with the Car and Coach hire business.

We began operations with a fleet of 5 cars and 1 coach. We were determined to set service standards in this area of work too and we set about the task with seriousness and soon discovered that there is a big opportunity out there if we work towards building an organized transport unit.

And we did just that. We put to all the experience of decades to work used technology and training to develop a paperless work environment, trained staff and drivers equally to instill in them a sense of responsibility and the need for quality service. This was very well accepted by our clients and customers and we soon grew to be the largest fleet operator in our area with 120 cars 25 small coaches and 5 large coaches employing over 350 employees.

We give special importance to maintenance of our fleet and we have separate division taking care of vehicle maintenance, and all repair work is done through authorized garages. We ensure that every vehicle is checked for its roadworthiness before it leaves the parking. We have a dedicated secured parking area to park our cars making sure they are never tampered with.

We realised that besides offering the normal tourist transport related services there was a dire need to set up a Logistics department to take care of complex transportation needs for big corporate companies and to become an extended arm of companies to provide complete logistics services for Corporate Employee Transportation.

Girikand has become Maharashtra?s foremost provider of all travel solutions in corporate travel as well as mass transport. The company caters to many of countries leading corporate and BPO companies. Girikand offers its services in Pune and at New Delhi, Mumbai, Nashik, Nagpur, Aurangabad, Kolhapur and Solapur

Girikand is recognized for its partnership approach, tailoring its technology, systems and processes to match the client's needs. It always works as an extended arm with the client's admin team with total transparency. This takes the burden off the admin team and further helps them to optimize their outputs.

Girikand believes that to survive and prosper in today?s increasingly global environment it needs to be pro-active, and customers oriented. With this in mind Girikand continually makes investments in personnel and technology. We have designed our services with the needs of our customers and clients in mind. We understand good transport enhances the clients business, and bad transport could impact it adversely.

Delivering quality transport service has not always been easy. In many cases, efforts to change practices which have been entirely driver based so far, are very difficult. We have mastered the art of bringing in this change with the use of proper rostering, proper and trained supervisory staff and continuous training of drivers, which enables us to deliver an accurate pick up and drop schedule. Of course speed, time, proper log in time, efficiency of service are of primary importance, but we give equal emphasis on effective communication, proper log in times, and above all service which are trouble / hassle free.

We believe in the continuous process of learning through experience and putting all the learning to use in order to optimize quality service. We will keep striving hard to achieve our vision.
