Palace Tours is proud to announce the signing of a new agreement with Indian Railways (IRCTC) that names Palace Tours as a preferred sales agent of the Maharajas’ Express. In other words, as of June 2015, Palace Tours is now the only agent outside of India recognized as a direct representative of the Maharajas’ Express.

In contrast to the other designated representatives of the Maharajas’ Express, Palace Tours is the only agent that is subject to the stringent laws and regulations of the United States of America, meaning that Palace Tours must abide by rigorous guidelines, has the necessary insurance, and implements numerous methods in order to best protect its consumers who want to enjoy a luxurious vacation through some of India’s most iconic and captivating landmarks.

While consumer protections afforded by U.S. laws were certainly a factor behind this resolution of this deal, so too was Palace Tours’ history and record of success selling luxury train packages to India. Prior to partnering with the Maharajas’ Express, Palace Tours worked to make reservations on such Indian luxury trains as the Palace on Wheels, Royal Palace on Wheels, and the Golden Chariot. Palace Tours was extremely successful in these pursuits and managed to accrue the largest market share in India’s luxury train tour segment. IRCTC was undoubtedly aware of this record of excellence as they struck a deal with Palace Tours last month.

This news comes as a boon to Palace Tours’ existing clientele, who will now be able to work with the agency to reserve space on board the Maharajas’ Express. The new relationship is not just to the benefit of Palace Tour’s existing clientele, however, as anyone can consult with the agency to make a reservation on the Maharajas’ Express. As an added bonus, Palace Tours plans on offering deals directly from IRCTC to its customers and lobbying the railway for additional deals. And, in fact, Palace Tours has already been successful in selling multiple reservations for the train’s upcoming season.

Clients old and new can rest assured that Palace Tours–the company with the greatest degree of experience and consumer protections–will use its new alliance with IRCTC to help realize their dreams of traveling on board the Maharajas’ Express!
