Kathmandu, Nepal, Sep 16, 2008- After months of effort, ZenNepal not only the first Nepali travel agency to offer secure online hotel bookings, but also the largest hotel-booking agency in Nepal. To realize this enterprise, ZenNepal collaborated with a distribution partner already offering the same well-tested electronic commerce platform to its customers.

When asked about the decision to ally services with another company, ZenNepal’s manager, Rubi Chhetry, responded by saying, “With the tourist season fast approaching, we wanted to deliver a user-friendly yet comprehensive tool to our customers. To achieve the best results, we chose to license pre-existing technology from an international associate—one who already has contracts with 4,000 hotels—all of which are supported by this platform.”

Currently, ZenNepal has contracts with 60 hotels here in Nepal and the number is projected to reach 100 by June 2009. Like other hotel booking systems, travelers who choose to use the services of ZenNepal or one its many affiliate sites now have a wide selection of star-rated hotels and hotel amenities from which to choose. The true difference lies in minimizing transaction time through real-time connectivity. Product Manager for ZenNepal, Mitali Ghosh, explains, “Real-time online bookings guarantee that the hotel rooms are reserved on the day of the request, for the desired dates, and with the amenities the customer expects”.

In addition to its online hotel bookings, ZenNepal offers customer service to travelers and hotel partners twenty-four hours per day via their Thamel-based customer care center. “The combination of our progressive online services coupled with our call center allows a local company not only the chance to compete against larger companies, but also, we hope, to out-rival them in our national market”, stated Rubi Chhetry. ZenNepal’s international telephone number caters to travelers from abroad, while Nepalese travelers and Nepal-based hotel partners can receive the same service using the domestic number (01) 443-6364

ZenNepal provides travelers with international and domestic airline ticketing as well as Nepal- and India-based travel services such as tour package, hotel, and car rental bookings. Located in Thamel, Kathmandu, ZenNepal’s services are accessible 24-hours a day from the United States at (202) 465-4266 or internationally at (977) 1-4436364, and online at zenNepal.com.
