About Kerala & India Connections

Kerala Connections was founded in 1998 and were the first UK tour operator to specialise in Kerala and South India. We have been offering the whole of India since 2001. We are a true India specialist; India is our passion and it was the founders love of the country and its people that led to the business being established. We feel that to get to know a country you must 'connect' with it - hence the choice of company name. We hope our customers will want to truly get to know India and its people - our type of independent tailor-made holiday gives them every opportunity to do just that.

We merged with No News No Shoes in 2020 and they are the parent company. Kerala Connections and India Connections are trading names of No News No Shoes Ltd. No News No Shoes was founded in 2004 and began as a Maldives specialist but expanded to include other areas of Asia, including India which they are also passionate about. When the directors of Kerala Connections Ltd wanted to retire - merging with a like-minded company was the perfect solution.

We have a small team of staff in the UK and you can expect to deal with the same person throughout the booking process. We are totally independent and so are our local agents. The accommodation we feature is listed because we recommend them. They are, in our opinion, the best option in that category (in some remote places there is little choice but in the popular destinations we will select the best top range, mid- range, budget hotels and guesthouses). We can assure you that all the properties we list are there because we think they are the best option for our customers. We have personally visited the majority of accommodations that we offer so can guide you based on our experiences.

All our holidays are individually tailored to suit your needs - again using our vast personal experience of travelling in India over many years, revisiting established places and discovering new opportunities. 

All holidays booked with Kerala and India Connections are financially protected as required under UK law. Flight inclusive packages are protected under our ATOL (number 6926) and non flight inclusive packages are protected under our financial failure insurance policy. 

Above all, we provide all of our customers with a high quality, personal service. You can rely on us to craft the right itinerary, appropriate to your needs, deliver excellent in country service and a full support service should you encounter any difficulties. In the light of the recent Coronavirus pandemic, this is extremely important. We are delighted and proud of the number of clients who have commended us on how well they have been taken care of during this challenging period.
