Travellers are always looking for unique, fresh experiences when hitting the road. Whether you’re journeying alone or with loved ones, forays into unknown lands often entail new experiences. But travel preparation can often be tedious, given the range of options and adventures available.
According to the President of Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (MATTA) Datuk Tan Kok Liang, the number of Malaysians travelling has been increasing steadily, due to a better quality of life. This year, MATTA expects Malaysians to make at least 13.2 million trips abroad.
A study by Expedia has reported that 72 percent of Malaysians spend a lot of their time researching things to do on their travels while 66 percent admitted that they spent their time reading travel reviews.
Established in 2018, Zouba is the first-ever meta-book travel marketplace, the platform currently home to over 280,000 different tours and activities across 3,300 destinations. It is a platform for discovering and instantly booking tours and activities worldwide which make travel planning easier, faster and more convenient. There is always something for everyone to enjoy.
Recognising the immense growth of outbound travel in Malaysia and the amount of time Malaysians spend on putting together a travel to-do list, Zouba is looking to make travel planning easy, convenient and fast.
“Travelling can begin even before arriving at your destination. Planning a trip in a foreign city – especially if you do not speak the native language – is one of the most challenging aspects of travelling. With the vast amounts of information available online, many find themselves lost and frustrated when trying to come up with a travel to-do list. As avid travellers ourselves, the Zouba team wants to help other travellers simplify the planning process by providing an all-inclusive platform that lets you book all kinds of experiences,” said Mr. Prasanna Vee, Chief Product Officer of Zouba.
“We want to give users a highly personalised discovery and booking experience. So instead of browsing through the endless list of tours and activities online, our system understands your choices and suggests travel options which we think you might like from our ever-expanding database. Essentially, we want to help you discover things you will love based on your interests and passions, in the most convenient way,” adds Prasanna Vee.
From wine tasting tours in Barcelona to nighttime excursions to Al-Khazneh in Petra, whether you’re on a shoestring budget or you’re looking to treat yourself, there is something for everyone on Zouba. Customers can choose their activities from Zouba’s trusted partners and instantly make their bookings, all on one platform.
With predictions that 2020 will be the year of travel discovery unlike any other, Zouba aims to continue forging trusted partnerships worldwide to satisfy every traveller’s wanderlust.
