Garmin India has launched a virtual travel platform with the digital campaign ‘Open the Door to the World’, with the aim to promote the spirit of outdoor travelling and connect travel enthusiasts to create more memorable experiences of travelling across the country.

This initiative comes against the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic, which largely restricted mobility due to the enforcement of necessary, but overwhelming, curbs across the nation, which significantly aggravated the travel genes of people.

Through this website, Garmin intends to connect travel enthusiasts virtually to explore and fulfil their travel aspirations. People who are unable to travel currently can visit the online virtual travel website.

The platform features major travel destinations from across the globe with 360-degree imagery. With Garmin’s technology taking the lead role, the user can generate their virtual photo by choosing a door and then select the destination from the 3D Map.

The website would automatically assist in removing the background of the initial picture and would create a virtual travel image of the user which can be further downloaded.

The website:

Ali Rizvi, Director, Garmin India, said, “In the current market scenario, where Covid-19 has largely restricted travelling, Garmin India has actively brought up this unique initiative to provide memorable travel experiences to our customers. To bring positivity and the spirit of travelling, we have developed a platform where users can enjoy and take pictures across beautiful locations. We at Garmin are constantly thriving to deliver innovative services and engage our audience in bringing the best of the experiences."

Garmin India is also running a contest where the participant has to complete the ‘Open the Door to the World’ trip and share the virtual travel photo on social media platforms like Facebook or Instagram (public post or Facebook/Instagram Stories) with the designated hashtag: #GarminOutdoorSpirit. The deadline for the contest is October 31, 2021.  The winners of the contest are to be announced on November 4, 2021.
