First Impression

RankSiteRemarks but rich content, easily navigable user interface. Toll free number displayed on the top right corner, a huge plus.
2Makemytrip.comMoved to second position because the customer care contact details are hidden.
3Yatra.comFirst time users will find it difficult to navigate through the options available. The dark background and the misaligned box shots are really irritating.
4Travelguru.comSimple but not informative, no toll free number.
5Cleartrip.comHighly simple, users may navigate away for the same reason thinking of clone sites.

  1. Good and Exhaustive comparison.. 5 Stars to post....


    Hi we stayed at Santana Beach Resort, Candolim, Goa - booking made
    from Makemytrip -on 8 March 12 Booking ID NP2801016836305..
    We had a
    very bad experience and the staff were rude and unhelpful, and I request
    you to take my feedback and not recommend this hotel again..
    - Several
    attempts to contact them prior to stay were met by rude staff on the
    - When we did check in late (10.30pm) on 1st day of arrival, one
    staff person on phone shockingly indicated prior to check in that due to
    late check our booking may be cancelled (already fully prepaid through
    Makemytrip), and only relented when told i had prepaid and already
    contacted them once earlier
    - On arrival asked for a small delay on
    checkout time of 11am (to 1pm or 12noon ie 2 or 1 hour late) was told by
    one staff person that there were several free rooms and will be done
    next day at 10am as the reception person who operates computer comes at
    - Next day was told the hotel was full at 10am and told to check
    out at 11am sharp which we did..
    - One staff tried to shortchange us,
    and only when i asked did he say they didnt have change.. i offered to
    give change and then got change
    - Power shortages and poor inverter
    - Mediocre breakfast (if you want to call it that)
    - Rude even to
    budget foreign trippers while we were checking out
    - Mostly seemed to
    cater wholly for budget foreign visitors (indian owner perhaps frowns on
    indian visitors and wants to discourage them, so he can get a better
    "profit" from foreign visitors!!??
    best wishes

  3. Hello,

    Thanks for sharing this

    I really like make my trip to book air tickets they have made really very easy and fast also very very comfortable to book online because and also we get lots of other information from the website which we can’t get from other booking sites.

    Did you know you can also get discount while booking tickets and hotel booking at makemytrip, you have to just use coupon codes which you can find here and use these coupons and get discount on air tickets, hotels and holiday packages.


  4. I have booked a holiday package from Will share my experience once its over..

  5. Insted of booking online try booking with the makemytrip agents ..they usualy offer lower price than site i travel a us-india-us alot
