Joining hands with BankMuscat, is giving us the chance to offer customers this extra convenience they need, at unique prices. Locals can purchase tickets & packages, book hotel rooms and airport transfers instantly in Omani Riyals and save big on conversion rates! I congratulate BankMuscat for this effort and I am indeed happy to associate Travel Point with this one-of-a-kind Omani Shopping Portal”, said Mr. Sunil Prabhakar, Group General Manager, Travel Point LLC.
