Nirvana Excursions to launch home agent programme

With a desire to provide women with viable and interesting career options in tourism, Nirvana Excursions has launched a ‘Home Agent Programme’ aimed at housewives. This programme will allow them the flexibility of working from home, while ensuring a steady income. Nidhi Batra, Co-founder, Nirvana Excursions, says, “It is specifically designed to encourage women to use their existing network and relationships, therefore making it a point to avoid any unnecessary stress. At the same time, the agents are also provided with exhaustive and in-depth training and education. In this way, Nirvana ensures that every home agent is completely prepared to work in the travel sector regardless of whether or not they have any prior experience in this industry. Being a woman entrepreneur and a mom myself, I believe very strongly in women having the financial freedom and identity that comes with a career. That’s why, we ensure that the women of our programme receive all the help and support they need and have the confidence to create their own space in this industry.” Nirvana Excursions specialises in travel experiences and customised solutions for the discerning traveller.
