Saudi Tourism and India’s Thrillophilia partner to boost visitors

The deal aims to promote the country as a holiday destination to a network of more than 50 million travellers

A deal inked between Saudi Arabia Tourism and Thrillophilia, one of India’s largest travel experience booking platforms, is set to increase the number of arrivals from India into KSA.

Through the partnership, Thrillophilia will leverage its audience of more than 50 million travellers to highlight Saudi Arabia’s tourist attractions and travel experiences, including sand dune bashing, hiking, scuba diving in the Red Sea and exploring UNESCO world heritage sites.

The agreement aligns with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s Vision 2030, which aims for tourism to be the largest contributor to GDP after oil and gas.
