India holds a rich history and along with it come stories about glorious lifestyles, families and cultures. From the gems and riches of the Mughal era to the bank balance of the Ambanis' in today's times, India has been witness to a sharp rise in being home to some of the world's wealthiest and their luxurious lifestyles.
Today’s world is all about “Innovate or perish” and the same is applicable across industries, including governments.However, there's more that needs to be done. For example, despite increase in Hospitality industries, chartered planes and Concierge services, luxury connect travel has been seeing a wide gap in the service offering.
What at times is missing in the picture is an assured safety and security for women and people in general when they travel in some random cab, which may not be even your choice. If you wish to choose an elite service for an occasion then you have to run around, as there are too many options and some of you may not even enjoy that negotiation conversation.

But gradually with virtual assistants that sometimes take care of all of the above mentioned jobs, technology can soon change the luxury lifestyle industry too.
