Cleartrip’s Summer Bookings Increase by 200 Percent, an Indian Newspaper Announces

Cleartrip, an online travel agency, reports a 200 percent rise in summer bookings over the same time previous year. Cleartrip’s chief business officer, Prahlad Krishnamurti, attributed the company’s increased bookings to its customer-centric strategy, which he said gave customers more peace of mind. According to Krishnamurti, the demand has been bolstered by a number of factors, including no-cost equivalent monthly instalment (EMI) alternatives under a travel now pay later scheme.

Hotel reservations booked on a global scale increased by about 370 percent between April and May, and by 300 percent in March, as compared to the corresponding months of the previous year. When comparing bookings made on or before March 22 this year to bookings made on or before March 22 last year, the online travel agency found that demand for international summer travel over the period of April 16 to July 15 grew by 230 percent. Bookings placed on or around March 22 saw a 9 percent rise compared to the same period last year. Cleartrip has noted that new domestic routes have appeared as a result of improved accessibility. The opening of Goa’s new airport, for example, has helped drive this growth. According to the online travel agency, Goa is the most popular summer destination. Kochi and Bengaluru follow closely behind. Bangkok is the most popular overseas destination, followed by Dubai and Male.

Cleartrip has launched a new marketing campaign called “Nation on Vacation,” with the goal of encouraging cheap travel by offering discounts on hotels, flights, and buses in preparation for the next holiday season. The online travel agency reported a 17 percent increase in advance bookings and a 60 percent increase in the use of the no-cost pay later option as a result of the promotion. We were able to boost demand for this summer’s vacation season thanks to our Nation on Vacation offer. “There is a strong desire, especially for international destinations, after two years of muted travel,” said Krishnamurti.
