Our core goal for designing the website was to create an easy-to-navigate yet powerful tool to research holiday trips for travellers.’ said Kevin Khor, Head of Sales and Marketing for Contiki (Asia). ‘There are two important sections that cater to our core audience – deals and community, along with introducing our trips and who we are. As with our approach to our trips, it’s about making the moment count when our guests visit our website. At Contiki, that’s what we do best.’ added Khor.
