iXiGO launches hotel search engine

iXiGO.com, an online and mobile travel search engine, has added the feature of hotel search in its website. The hotel search engine would help the user get instant confirmation at affordable prices across 4,500 hotels in 320 Indian cities. The hotel search engine helps the user search for accommodation by price, star ratings and amenities and gives access to detailed views of maps and photos. The user can also compare room tariffs of the same hotel across multiple sites.

Aloke Bajpai, Founder & CEO, iXiGO, said, “We are bringing our disruptive flight search model to hotel bookings by allowing instant real time search across hotel booking sites. By comparing aggregators like Expedia, Travelocity, Orbitz, Desiya and some exclusive international content partners such as HotelsCombined, we hope to strategically integrate with booking sites of independent hotels and hotel chains in the future to better manage their yields and lower their internet distribution costs.”

Based in Gurgaon, iXiGO.com has been termed as one of the most innovative start-ups in the world by ‘Red Herring’ magazine and Nasscom. iXiGO had recently closed a pre-Series A investment round with Singapore-based investment fund BAF Spectrum.
