Rengha Holidays

Best Travel Agency Rengha Holidays

Once upon a time, in the promising land of Theni, there lived a young man. He had an unending love for the automobile and lost his heart to travel. With nothing but lots of hope and courage, he started his dream company Rengha Travels with just 2 ambassador cars. The dream morphed with time and became air-conditioned cabs, first of its kind in the Dist. of Theni.

Travel- a simple word which makes one very modest. It makes one realise what a small portion of the world he occupies. All love to travel, but are we ready to take it head-on? Though we leave our identities back, we are very much stuck to some level of comforts.
