Imparting an added momentum to the state’s Keravan Kerala initiative, Kerala Tourism Development Corporation (KTDC) has come out with an attractive ‘Caravan Holidays’ package, which offers the tourists a high-end experience of travelling through the panoramic settings at an affordable rate with an array of frills attached including free breakfast and parking.
Under the package, a tourist can enjoy all comforts and compliments while travelling on a luxury caravan paying Rs 3,999 plus tax per person per night. The ride fare per kilometre has been fixed at Rs 40. Each caravan will carry up to four adults and two children.
As Kerala’s premium hospitality service provider, the state-run KTDC has struck agreement with caravan service providers opting to operate under the package.
An initial safari circuit worked out as part of the package covers Kumarakom-Vagamon- Thekkady route.
