Cleartrip.com fortifies its Cleartrip for Business offering

Online travel agency Cleartrip.com’s Cleartrip for Business - cleartripforbusiness.com - is a product that is aimed to change the way India Inc travels. By packaging all the administrative aspects of corporate travel and combining this with a dynamic and cost efficient travel booking tool, Cleartrip claims to have developed the first ever exclusive online business travel solutions product.

Naveen Gulrajani, Vice-President - Sales, Cleartrip, said, “After conducting in-depth research, we found that companies felt their travel expenditure was inefficient, on top of which many had to pay for additional overheads in terms of implants, raising concerns about transparency and administration. Cleartrip for Business is a one-stop-shop that enables a corporate to proactively take complete control of its travel expenses.”

He further said, “Five months since its launch, Cleartrip for Business has seen incredible momentum, with 500 forward-thinking companies signing up. At this pace, we project that bookings will increase from 500 segments a week today to 1,000 segments a day and 50 hotel rooms nights a week to 100 a day, over the next six months.”

With companies like Blue Star and Tally Solutions having already signed up, the appeal of Cleartrip for Business has been broad, ranging from retail to online, large multinationals to medium-sized national companies using the tool for all their travel needs. The main benefits of Cleartrip for Business are the speed of transactions, reduced cost of implants or travel related HR, transparency of costs and most importantly, cost efficiencies through special reductions, discounts and offers that are exclusively available on Cleartrip for Business.

Cleartrip.com was launched in July 2006 and is one of the top three online travel companies in India and claims to have 30 per cent of the market share. Cleartrip is said to have built on the promise of providing a reliable, simple and responsible service by offering comprehensive products with competitive pricing, with the mission of making travel simple for all consumers.
