ixigo powers IRCTC site for hotel bookings

Travel marketplace ixigo has partnered with IRCTC to power hotel bookings for the latter’s users. Through this partnership, ixigo’s range of accommodation offerings from its domestic and international hotel partners and OTAs will be available on IRCTC’s web and mobile platforms.

Railway travellers can now go to IRCTC Hotels and compare budget and luxury hotels across prices, ratings, reviews and amenities through this new hotel search and booking platform. ixigo searches and compares over 40,000 hotels from all leading travel websites and allows travellers to filter by offerings such as ‘pay at hotel’ and ‘free cancellation’.

Commenting on the tie up, MP Mall, CMD, IRCTC, said, “Our partnership with ixigo is part of our efforts of enhancing service offerings to railway customers. The smart and personalized hotel booking options aggregated from multiple online travel sites will help IRCTC deliver affordable accommodation to users through ixigo’s simple and innovative hotel platform.”

Announcing the partnership, Aloke Bajpai, CEO & Co-Founder, ixigo, said, “We are delighted to power hotels for IRCTC and extend our offerings for their large base of rail customers. As a company, we have a decade long commitment towards understanding the pain points of train travellers and solving them. Through this partnership with IRCTC, ixigo’s hotels meta-search technology will be made available to fulfil the government’s vision of providing more convenience and services to rail travellers.”

IRCTC’s website and app witnesses over 7 lakh train bookings a day and through this exclusive partnership with ixigo, it aims to fulfill the hotel booking requirement for thousands of travellers every day. Rail travellers will benefit from exclusive deals and discounts as ixigo will aggregate and compare prices across branded budget hotel aggregators and OTAs on IRCTC.
