Pacto has not only developed into a Destination Management (DMC) company that operates the largest network in Indonesia, but is also the only national Destination Management (DMC) company with a balanced portfolio worldwide.

Currently we are the only inbound player to have Bali Prima Holiday, a company fully dedicated to tailor-made travel for individual (FIT) and group (GIT). In the meantime, we still maintain the volume of purchasing power company thanks to the strength of the group of companies in all segments, ” she continued.
