ghumo.com – Travel portal getting lot of attention online

Well recently running search in blogsphere on cleartrip,yatra and flightraja. Brought me to ghumo.com. Never had seen a single advertisement or article in mainstream media before this date.  Decided to check out the site. first of all site took ages to open up. Search was very slow keeping in mind got use to yatra and cleartip experience.  Their site looks to be dependent on abacus GDS for returning fare search results. In the time when all travel portals are moving out  from abacus to galileo it comes as matter of surprise how are they still dependent on them.

Ghumo looks like another offline travel agent trying to get share of online deal.

Verdict : No tension or immediate threat to bigger funded portals

    The quote where you mentioned “In the time when all travel portals are moving out from abacus to galileo it comes as matter of surprise how are they still dependent on them.” , I would like to put things into perspective.

    As of date, March’07, 95% of travel portals in India are using Abacus (refer to the sites of MakeMyTrip, ClearTrip,Arzoo,FlightRaja.. name them) are using Abacus as their booking engine. As Abacus has over the period developed the best online booking engine and these travel portals are aware of the same. Galileo is hardly being used by any travel portal.

    Feel a lot of pity on people who have wasted time, money and energy on travel portals. You should try out http://www.ixigo.com for a smoother travel search experience.

    We are currently the fastest, most comprehensive (14 Airlines, 3 OTAs) and most unbiased travel search engine in the Indian market.

    We can confidently claim to have the cheapest fares on any given sector on any given date since between the airlines and OTAs we show fares from, we are bound to found the cheapest options for you within a few seconds.

    We show all prices with taxes included, and we dont claim to sell any 99 Rs. tickets because we want consumers to know the absolute price that hits their pockets.

    Finally – try it once, and tell us if any other portal can match our prices, speed or usability, for flights.

    I’m not sure why but this website is loading very
    slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or
    is it a problem on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the
    problem still exists.
