Taj Hotels’ Amazing Offer for Tata Group Employees offers 2 Nights at IHCL Group Hotels across India for INR 9,990

Indian Hotels Company Limited, the parent company of Taj Hotels and Palaces, have been running a great promotional offer for the employees of the Tata Group and their friends and families for a while now, which I thought I should post for those who have not heard of this offer via internal materials so far. Called the IHCL World of Privileges, the promotion offers stays at IHCL hotels in rooms/suites of participating Taj Hotels are low prices. Here is everything we can tell you about the World of Privileges Taj Hotels can offer you.

IHCL World of Privileges Taj

Through IHCL World of Privileges, the hotel company is offering Tata Group employees (including firms such as TCS, Tata Starbucks, Vistara, Voltas and so many others), the ability to buy kits that provide benefits at many IHCL Hotels, including meals, spa and so on, for very low prices.

World of Privileges Taj

Any Tata Group employee can buy up to 5 of either variant of the booklets each, and these booklets can be further gifted to family/friends. A few things to remember though, are that you can’t earn TIC points for the purchase of the booklet, nor can you buy it with a Taj Experiences Gift Card. The validity of this voucher booklet is 1 year from the date of purchase.

GST has to be paid for on the use of various vouchers, and at what price will the service be attributable for GST has been defined in the terms. But it is a small price to pay for the services.

Is this a good promotion?

Hell, yes! While hotel rates are at a low, Taj Hotels has usually managed to keep their premium, at least for their top-end properties. For instance, this is the price per night of the suite at a Taj Falaknuma Palace on a random date, and this suite is priced similarly through the months. So one is getting this at 16% of the price.

Remember, this is apart from the other perks you get beyond the Suite which is valuable as well. Similarly, for the Classic pack, here is a hotel room example at one of the best in Delhi. You get a stay at 35% of the usual prices.

Update

The promotion has been closed as of March 31, 2021.

Bottomline

Tata Group employees who love to travel are in for a treat. I’m hoping they acquire these voucher booklets and are able to use them for travel after they are vaccinated. Or gift them to friends and family, and me! Working for the Tata Group comes with its perks, and apart from the Club Vistara Tata Tier, this is one more of them.

Comments

  1. The World of Privileges Vouchers are no longer available for purchase.
    Seen on the website.
    Please check if its still available

  2. I checked with my HR team this is only for employees they told specifically that you need to produce your I’d card when you avail this service
    It is not like a service you purchase this snd extend to others
    It is special emp perk.
    And also if any emp is found to extend to others action may be taken against him

  3. Asked one of the friends to buy it for me.
    However the T&C on the buy page laid it out clearly that it is reserved only for Tata group employees. Hence refrained.

  4. Please check the availability before buying , the prices are too good , but there is fixed quota for these rooms

    For example Taj Lake Palace , Umaid bhavan are full under this quota, for next full year.

  5. I heard that a Tata employee has to be part of the booking i.e. it cannot be availed by a friend or family unless the Tata employee is also present.

  6. This offer is apparently going on since Aug 2020 and my spouse, who is TCS employee never got an intimation for this. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  7. Greate post. Although I have not any relative or friend who is an employee of TATA group. but I will surely share this information with my colleagues. Great information.
