Yahoo Fare Chase India Vs Rediff Fare Search

Accidently i reached Yahoo India homepage. In last 2-3 years probably i might have used yahoo  india homepage 10-15 times. As nor do i have a yahoo email account or any interest in using their search engine. As i had reached the page i wanted to see whom they had partnered for providing travel content/deals. I knew about global site alliance with lonely planet but nothing indian specific was in news.

On clicking Travel bumped into yahoo india’s new application Fare Chase. Which is pretty similar to Rediff Fare Search we have reviewed before. The difference is Yahoo fare chase shows more accurate pricing as compared to rediff fare search.  To understand why search is better lets look at yahoo fare search functionality.

What i could understand by looking at the application. Once you select the airport and dates  you wanna fly. The site runs an screen scraping utility to search airline website  for the fares and return results back to the user. Though the tool didnt work fine for me as i was checking fare between Delhi – Gorakhpur. It also showed me fair for Delhi – Agartala. Now i dont know why was that did the computer think agartala was the nearest airport??

Anyway once you click go it takes user back to original airline site from where fare was scrapped.  This is a good utility for travellers as AIRLINE WEBSITE FARES AND TRAVEL PORTAL FARES MAY BE DIFFERENT AT TIMES.

I like rediff fare search utility better as they have 90 days fare analysis utility which is very handy. So many times it has helped me plan my holidays.

    a note of appreciaion about ur blog- ur posts are the best i have read over a wide cross section of blogs on new age media and business. Keep it going ! There is such a dearth of content on online business rooted in the Indian context.

    Zoomtra.com is into the same business and seem to be doing well. They have a few OTAs with them apart from all the airlines. Their hotels section just got launched but seems to have a few bugs as of now..

    I agree with you Rediff seems to be working hard on the travel front. I love their new trains search.

    Hi there, There’s no doubt that your web site may be having internet browser compatibility issues.
    When I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening
    in I.E., it has some overlapping issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Besides that, great site!
