HAPPY Trails Indonesia, a Bali-based DMC established since 2003, will open its first branch office in Jogjakarta come January 2015.
Gerald van Amerongen, CEO of Happy Trails Indonesia, said: “An increasing number of guests visit Jogjakarta and Java each year. We decided to have the first branch in Jogjakarta because it is the most-visited destination by our guests after Bali.
“Centrally located in Java, Jogjakarta provides various advantages as well. For example, this (new branch) makes it easier for our operational team to coordinate assistance to our guests in Java.”
Ratna Eka Soebrata, assistant to the managing director, Happy Trails Indonesia added that apart from supporting the Bali office in groundhandling, the branch office will create its own products covering various market segments.
“These will range from adventures such as mountain climbing and cycling tours to cultural visits and shows such as dance classes or batik making. We will also provide tailor-made travel services for both pre-booked and walk-in clients.”
After Jogjakarta, Happy Trails Indonesia is considering to open its second branch office in Labuan Bajo, East Nusa Tenggara to serve travellers visiting Komodo, Flores and the neighbouring islands.
