Darwin Tech* started out of a discussion between the two co-founders about the relative low-tech and slow nature of the dynamic packaging aka tailored / customized holiday market.
Even though, a large majority of travellers are using online services to research where they wanted to go next and what they wanted to do, when it came to booking their holiday, they still need a more trusted partner – usually the Travel Agent [Why should you hire a Travel Agent to plan & book your Holidays – read more here] .
However, we realized that the experience of planning and booking a holiday through travel agents is often several orders of magnitude slower than the feeling of searching for holiday destinations online, punching in your credit card, and getting a ‘Booked!’ email in the your inbox.
The obvious question both of us had was – if everyone today – the customer, the agent, the suppliers, and even the wholesalers all had access to the internet, why was it not possible to design a system so that travel agents could respond faster to customers, while continuing to provide the benefits of personalization and service.
Then, we set out to figure out a name for our company, and we realized what we were attempting was not to disrupt the existing modus operandi, but to evolve it suited to the needs of the fast and connected world of today. ‘Evolve‘ led us to the father of Evolution – Darwin and hence the name of this company!
