Indus Health Plus, a pioneer in preventive healthcare has today, announced its partnership with OYO Hotels & Homes, the world’s leading hospitality chain to extend its services to conduct COVID-19 detection tests. The collaboration aims to provide a convenient platform for COVID-19 detection tests for the people who are planning their travels. It is essential if a person is travelling to a state that is following pre-travel COVID test guidelines. In addition, through this service, travellers will be able to easily book an appointment call back for a COVID-19 test from OYO’s app and its website across all major metros, tier I and tier-II cities. This service will enable customers of OYO to plan a safe and healthy trip along with a peace of mind.
This development will also help in enhancing the company’s focus on preventing and controlling disease transmission through extensive testing of COVID-19. These COVID-19 detection tests will be priced at standard rates as followed by respective states.
Amol Naikawadi, Joint Managing Director, Indus Health Plus, commented on this development said, “Our organization is committed to prevention and we believe that as the lockdown state comes to an end, travelling will become more frequent. Hence, it will be critical to have a preventive healthcare system in place to test people travelling to states where pre-travel tests guidelines are mandatory. We have partnered with OYO Hotels to extend our support to fight this pandemic and provide ease to OYO Hotels customers in different parts of the country. We will continue to provide support and identify opportunities where Indus Health Plus can be a part to control this challenging situation in our country.”
Commenting on the partnership, Rohit Kapoor, Chief Executive Officer, OYO India & South Asia, said “We’re seeing really positive signs of travel coming back. After spending months under lockdown and now, restrictions easing across the country, consumers are looking forward to stepping out and exploring new destinations, closer to home, and of course with utmost precautions. While intentions to travel are strengthening, our teams are working round the clock to also strengthen our offerings, and our value to the consumer.”
He added, “For instance, to ensure we come up with the most useful solutions for travellers, our senior leaders have personally spoken with nearly 2000+ consumers to understand their aspirations and worries, their concerns, and requirements. Through these conversations, we understood that leisure travel is on the rise but consumers are still cautious about sanitisation and regulations, and therefore, we launched Sanitised Stays to increase our standard of hygiene at OYO properties. To make the planning process easier for consumers, we also introduced Travel Assistance on our app to help with COVID-19 testing and state-wise guidelines, therefore, becoming a part of our guests’ journey right from the very beginning.”
The service will allow the customers to book a sample collection from home or make an appointment at a screening center as per convenience.
