Top India Travel Companies (OTAs) in India – Know them better before you use their services

There are over 30 online travel companies in India, with the exception of airlines and other hotels. Few of them specialize in a particular industry. For the benefit of all Indian visitors from all over the world, the top ten sites for booking a trip to India are –

Makemytrip.com – MakeMyTrip, India's # 1 Travel Site, founded and promoted by Mr. Deep Kalra, is the best website in the country for any travel related products and services. They offer flights, hotel reservations, car rentals, vacation spots and even train reservations now on their website. Makemytrip serves the US and Canadian markets, the Indian market, and recently they have also launched the UAE makemytrip. Makemytrip is now launching its first US IPO and is raising about $ 100 million. They overpaid and raised about $ 800 million. Their office is based in Gurgaon, India, and they have over 700 employees. Their code specialization is vacation planning and booking, including for travel travelers. It is estimated that they sell more than 8,000 tickets a day.

Yatra – Yatra is known to be the second best OTA travel website in the country. He was promoted by Drun Sringi, along with several other guys who had previously started working with ebooks. Yatra is funded by some of India's leading Reliance, TV 18 Group and NVP groups, and recently received funding from Intel. They specialize in domestic flights. They are also based in Gurgaon, India and have over 600 employees. They also book car rentals, hotels, vacations and train reservations. They are currently expected to sell over 5,000 tickets a day.

Cleartrip – Cleartrip was a new entrant in the Indian market about 3 years ago and they are known for their technology. As the name suggests, their technology is very clear, and you don't see any banners or pop-ups on their homepage. They were the first OTAs to integrate with the Indian Railways reservation system called IRCTC. They are based in Mumbai and have a smaller team than Makemitrip or Yatra.

Expedition India – Expedia has recently entered the Indian travel space, and they are now focusing on their hotel business. They have yet to integrate into their portfolio LCCs (low cost carriers) such as GoAir, GoIndigo, JetLite, Kingfisher Red and more. But I am sure that in a year they will lead the Indian market.

Travelocity India – Travelocity is again a new entrant in the Indian market and they are progressing rapidly. They recently purchased another OTA hotel called Travelguru. They are controlled from Singapore.
