Ixigo has been one of top online travel ticket aggregation and search platform for a long time. Till now, Ixigo users could search for flights and hotel needs and had to visit partner website to make the purchase. Now Ixigo has launched ‘ixibook’ that allows users to book their flight tickets or do the hotel bookings directly inside the ixigo app, without the need to go to the partner website.

Aloke Bajpai, ixigo Co-­founder & CEO said in regards to the launch, “This is a first of its kind innovation in the Indian travel market, and we have chosen to work with the industry’s best for our initial launch. With ixibook, we will deliver a much smoother customer experience for ixigoers and enhance conversions for our partners by allowing users to book with them natively within our app. We expect to move over 30% of our flight and hotel bookings to ixibook within the next few months, as well as add more partners to ixibook later this year.”

ixigo has currently partnered with Cleartrip and OYO Rooms to provide this feature.

According to the official blog post, user payments for flight and hotel bookings will be done through Cleartrip.

How to use ixibook?

To do bookings on ixigo app itself, user needs to simply add traveler information (one time) to the app, and it will pick up the same information in all subsequent transactions. If the user wishes to add other travellers or make any edits in their existing information, it can either be done manually or then the app will prompt the user to do it on the flight search page while doing the booking.
