Routes 2 Escape – as evident from its name, has its prime objective to help one escape from the daily stress and grind of a modern cosmopolitan living. The firm was established, back in June 2013, when I took a tough decision to move out of the comfort zone of a well paid corporate life and follow my passion of travelling.

Travelling and exploring the off-beat locations of the world has always been my passion. I wanted to turn my hobby into my profession. This was the thought behind my brainchild Routes 2 Escape. We laid down the three pronged business philosophy at the very onset: Customer Satisfaction, Customization & Value for Money.

Describe your business model and what makes your business unique

Routes 2 Escape, works primarily on a B2C (business to customer) platform, by coordinating with direct vendors in core locations and getting a well-coordinated personalised service to the customer.

At R2E, we don’t have any standard packages, as we believe in the fact every individual will have different travel habits. Hence, all trips are customised keeping in mind the traveller’s preference and budget.

Our USP is a strong local connection in almost all the major tourist location. This helps us in monitoring the guest schedule to perfection.
