HalalTravels 2020 - Year in Review

2020 pushed companies to new ways of working that most were not even prepared for. It was taking its toll on companies and as a startup, it also did shape our business plan. We made changes to our product strategy as necessitated by the new market conditions.

Despite all these difficulties and restrictions, our excellent team was able to achieve several successes from awards by recognized institutions to mentions in the most prestigious reports. Huge congratulations are due to the founders and the team for making the impossible possible.

Let’s take a look at some of the great work and accomplishments achieved by HalalTravels in 2020.
