In a bid to boost tourism in UP, online travel tech platform EaseMyTrip.com has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Uttar Pradesh EcoTourism Development Board (UPETDB) under the Government of Uttar Pradesh. The objective of the MoU is to foster a strategic partnership aimed at elevating the promotion and development of tourism in Uttar Pradesh.

Under this collaboration, EaseMyTrip will promote all registered homestays in Uttar Pradesh on its online portal. The brand will also execute a promotional campaign to position homestays as a distinctive and preferred accommodation option for travellers visiting the state. Additionally, EaseMyTrip will develop educational products related to bird sanctuaries, drawing insights from successful case studies such as Okhla Bird Sanctuary and Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary. These products will be promoted in schools, colleges, and other institutions through tour guides. The tour guides will have access to training programs which will be officially registered under UPETDB and designed by EaseMyTrip to enhance the tourist experience.

EaseMyTrip will also curate and market bespoke tourism packages showcasing Uttar Pradesh’s unexplored destinations, cultural experiences, culinary delights, and traditional crafts. These packages will feature homestays as an integral component of the overall tourism experience and will promote the state’s tiger reserves, including Dudhwa, Pilibhit, Amangarh, and Ranipur Tiger Reserve.

The MoU was signed in the presence of UP’s Minister of Forest and Environment, Zoological Garden, Climate Change, Arun Kumar Saxena, and Minister of Ayush, Food Security, and Drug Administration, Dayashankar Mishra.

Rikant Pittie, Co-Founder of EaseMyTrip said, “We are excited to start this new project with the Uttar Pradesh Eco Tourism Development Board (UPETDB).
