Travelling becomes memorable when planned properly. Special occasions become more special when organised properly. Make a little mistake, and everything is spoiled. This must have happened with most of us. We all have had a bad experience on our trips to explore new cities or celebrate the birthdays of our loved ones because the organizer’s services were unsatisfactory. But BookingDone is a company which has gone against all the odds and provided its clients services so that they enjoy delightful experiences.
BookingDone is an online tour and travel supports company in Odisha that aims to provide amazing travel experiences to people visiting Odisha and regions around it. It also facilitates services of advance online booking of hotels for official business meetings and parties, marriages, birthday parties, etc. It’s services are not only easily accessible but also available at affordable prices. The facilities provided by the company are just one click away from the customers.
BookingDone is the brainchild of entrepreneur Bijay Nanda Debta, a graduate from Bargarh, Odisha. Being an entrepreneur was never his childhood dream. He worked for a telecom company, Pharma company. When Debta researched about the problems of booking hotels and various services that tourists face while visiting Odisha, he came up with the idea of BookingDone.
Many tour and travel companies exist in India. Then what is different about BookingDone? Founded in July 2015, BookingDone is the first online hotel booking company of Odisha. It was started to encourage tourism in the state. BookingDone promises to let its customers experience the mesmerizing architecture of the temples of Odisha, varying topography- from the wooded Eastern Ghats to the fertile river basin, the treasure of fauna and flora of the state and the mouth watering traditional cuisine in its truest form.
Originally, it was started with hotel booking services only, but after the demand from the customers, event booking, holiday packages and food booking services were also started. In just a span of two years, this startup company has expanded itself in 22+ cities of Odisha and has the tie-ups 70+ hotels and the company is growing every day. The company plans to expand in various cities all over India in the coming years.
BookingDone provides its customers services of hotel booking, event booking, holiday packages and food booking which all can be easily availed through its website. Social media has helped the company do a lot of things. Quality service is what sets BookingDone apart from its competitors. Happy clients due to an outstanding quality of service have paved the path to success for the company. The team of BookingDone struggles every minute to turn the wishes of its clients into reality with perfection. The company looks for comments and remarks from each of its customers to boost its services. It conducts a periodical survey to determine its market demand and get a general feedback from the public about their services.
A lot of hurdles were faced by Debta because of launching his startup in a three-tier city. Building trust amongst locals was one of them. He was patient and passed all the tests to achieve his goals. Debta believes that the key to his success is dedication, passion and smart work. He believed in himself, accepted everything and expected nothing. Time proved itself to him. Happiness is the success for him.
BookingDone which is following the digital India mission of the Government of India is also developing a multi-platform application to connect with a maximum number of people. The application will be in four languages, namely- English, Hindi, Odia and Chhattisgarhi.
