Travelguru – India’s best travel portal in terms of outbound travel suppliers

Carrying forward my earlier post on finding air tickets for my US Trip . I went forward running searches across all travel portals i could discover courtsey google. Most of them were powered by travel agents who just had submit information form when you click for find fare or comming soon logo. Though one portal i had stayed away from since begining of this blog was Travelguru. I just decided these guys are already getting so much coverage around the world by various publications and bloggers that i should concentrate on other startups in the arena. But again after reading another feed comming in talking about travelguru as leader in online travel space in india. I decided to go visit the portal and try my Delhi-RDU-Delhi return trip search. Waiting to see high cost tickets. I was shocked when they threw up a far less <60,000 as competitive as offline travel agents could offer.

Though the airline being offered was unheard (flying via Kiev,Ukraine) and was dependent on changing flights on multiple carriers. But wooh….finally a travel portal which actually provides you cheap instant online international travel reservation from india. Overall the site is pretty fast and decent but again its a travel 1.0 contender and they are still scaling up in terms of defining their overall customer handling capacity. Which is a good approach as india is game of volume and businesses are changing perspective how they behave in travel space.

    Dear Friend,

    I read your article and tried to test travelguru by searching flights. The portal only allows you to search for domestic flights. There is no provision to enter International airports. How were you able to search for New Delhi – RDU – New Delhi flights??

    Regards
    Deeps
