Leading travel and tour company Profil Holidays recently celebrated 25 years in the industry, marking the celebration with the launch of Travel Scout, a multifunctional app designed to enrich the journey of all travel enthusiasts.
Profil, which stands for “professional Filipinos,” has been helping thousands of Filipinos explore various countries in five continents and giving them unforgettable travel experiences.
A 100 percent Filipino-owned company, Profil Holidays had its beginnings in a single 20-square foot room at the height of the Gulf War, fueled by a dream to provide Filipinos with services that set the benchmark in the travel and leisure industry. Since then, Profil Holidays had enabled Filipinos to see the world and enrich their experience through traveling.
“I’ve had my fair share of travels. Seeing new ground helps one gain wisdom and perspective through the varying environment, mentalities, and cultures that broaden minds and help us think outside the box. This is particularly helpful in our quest to meet and surpass the current standards in the travel and leisure industry,” shares Rosanna Inciong, general manager of Profil Holidays.
Profil’s newly launched Travel Scout is a n all-in-one social travel and utility mobile app that can be downloaded on App Store and Google Play for free. What’s best about it is that it can be used even without Internet connection once it’s been downloaded. The key features include a currency converter, a multi-city weather forecast, a world clock, a travel checklist (to make sure you don’t forget the essentials), a travel guide, and an expense calculator to manage travel spends and costs.
Profil Holidays is also acknowledged as a pioneer when it comes to better itineraries with more exciting destinations. “Over the years, Profil Holidays was able to expand its network by having it built on strong relationship with more than 300 partners, 45 land handlers, 15 sightseeing firms, 10 hotel firms, two appointed general sales agents, and a fleet of partner airline companies,” added Inciong, who also shared that about 60 percent of the sales the company generated in previous years are mostly from European packages, followed by Mediterranean packages and Holy Land tours.
To mark its 25th year, Profil Holidays also introduced six new travel packages and a new and exciting tagline: “Always, the best experience.”
“We will not be successful in this industry without the trust and confidence of our partners, so we want to always ensure that what they get from us will always be the best experience,” Inciong shared.
Profil Holidays is a subsidiary of TAC Tours and Travel Corporation providing service to travel agents and tour operators in the Philippines, flying Filipinos to more than 100 countries around Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and the Americas.
