Mumbai, 27 February, 2023: Cordelia Cruises, India's only largest premium cruise line, today announced that they have entered into a strategic partnership with SanKash, the new age travel SAAS platform that aggregates BNPL service providers

Mumbai, 27 February, 2023: Cordelia Cruises, India’s only largest premium cruise line, today announced that they have entered into a strategic partnership with SanKash, the new age travel SAAS platform that aggregates BNPL service providers to offer flexible pay-over-time payment choices. Cordelia Cruises will now be offering sailing options that will allow the guests to sail first and pay later with zero percent interest spread over a period of six months (and upto thirty-six months with interest) and no down payment required, making the overall travel experience a lot more easier and fulfilling for many guests to come.

In accordance with this one-of-a-kind partnership, travellers will be able to spread the cost of their travel at the time of booking. This gives customers the option to  choose to split the amount over a period of maximum thirty-six months (with six months of zero percent interest) with the flexibility to choose how and when they wish to pay for their trip. Catering to the dreams of many Indians, this partnership between SanKash and Cordelia Cruises will allow them to explore the beauty that India is and simplify the financial requirements when it comes to exploring wonderful destinations like Sri Lanka, Lakshadweep, Goa and more.

“Cruising, despite being a fairly new travel option in India, has created a positive imprint in the travel, tourism and hospitality industry in the past one year. Cordelia Cruises has witnessed an encouraging response and continues to grow. However, it is still considered an aspiration for several from varied socio economic backgrounds. Having associated with SanKash makes cruising significantly more accessible and approachable for all. Having to pay in 6 easy installments with no interest is a step closer to going on your dream vacation without having to worry about spending a large part of your savings. We are pleased to collaborate with SanKash to make cruising a viable option for many.”

Mr Oneel Verma, COO, Cordelia Cruises

“We are delighted to partner with Cordelia Cruises, to introduce the concept of ‘Sail Now and Pay Later’ in India. Cruises are seeing a surge in demand off late and India is a major contributor to this growth, globally. Driven by the rise in demand and high disposable incomes, the market has the potential to grow by 10X over the next decade.”

Akash Dahiya, Co-Founder, SanKash

In the leisure industry, ‘Cruise Tourism’ is one of the fastest growing and vibrant components worldwide and given India’s beautiful and vast coastline with undisturbed idyllic islands and a great cultural heritage, there is tremendous potential for India, a major cruise destination. The Government’s vision is to make India a significant player in the global cruise market, for both river and ocean cruises.
