BCD Travel announced a new strategic partnership with Travelpass in Sri Lanka. Travelpass, a subsidiary of Sharmila Travels, is one of the largest travel agencies in the country, with branches in Colombo, Kandy, Jaffna, Batticaloa and Trincomalee.
“Sharmila Travels has a strong presence in Sri Lanka and its subsidiary, Travelpass, shares our focus on travel innovation and the customer experience,” said Greg O’Neil, BCD Travel’s president of Asia Pacific. “This partnership is proof of our ongoing commitment to deliver value-added travel solutions to national and multinational customers around the globe.”
Established in 1985, Sharmila Travels offers a range of travel services under various travel brands. Travelpass began as an online travel agency, but has evolved into a full-service corporate travel management company. The company has strong affiliations with SriLankan Airlines, Mihin Lanka and SriLankan Holidays.
“By partnering with BCD Travel, we gain exposure to its leading technology tools and corporate travel management solutions. We look forward to introducing these BCD Travel-developed tools and best practices to Sri Lankan corporations to help them align their travel policy with strategic goals and help them reduce travel spend,” said Pradeep Kumar, managing director of Travelpass.
