The new bus booking business will address critical user needs through unmatched flexibility and transparency.
Ahead of the upcoming summer holidays, Cleartrip, a Flipkart company, announced the launch of bus services on its app to ensure greater travel connectivity. Currently, it has an inventory of 10L bus connections and plans to build the largest bus network in India. The company has partnered with multiple State Road Transport Corporations and private bus operators nationwide.
The new bus booking business will address critical user needs through unmatched flexibility and transparency. Some of the key features include a 24*7 voice helpline, no hidden costs, quick refunds, and easy cancellation. As part of the launch offer, users can enjoy benefits like ‘zero convenience fee’ and a flat 10% off on all bus bookings until 31 March 2023.
As a bonus, the company has also unveiled India’s largest summer travel sale – #NationOnVacation. Packed with industry-first offerings on hotels, flights, and buses, this first edition of Cleartrip’s marquee IP, which will be an annual affair, promises to make travel affordable like never before.
Speaking on the exciting development, Prahlad Krishnamurti, Chief Business Officer, Cleartrip, stated, “Every decision we make at Cleartrip is to empower our users with choice, clarity and control and the launch of buses is no different. This new endeavour will help strengthen our position as a trusted and integrated travel partner, deepen our customer engagement, and simplify travel.”
Adding to the #NationOnVacation, he stated, “Summer holidays hold a special reverence across age groups and geographies. With the launch of #NationOnVacation, we want to celebrate India’s love for summer and travel. With these deals, travellers can plan without last-minute hassles, take advantage of the best prices, and enjoy a superior travel experience.”
Starting on 22 March 2023, #NationOnVacation is a 9-day travel extravaganza with domestic and international flights beginning at INR 999 and INR 4999 and specifically curated offers for popular tourist destinations.
