Cleartrip Launches Destination Guide

. October 14, 2008

AUGUST 31, 2006. Cleartrip is teaming up with Lonely Planet for a digital content licencing agreement and is launching a destination guide Small World. Content for all Indian destinations has been created by's travel writers over the last six months. Destinations can be searched by name or by browsing through a directory of continents.

Hrush Bhatt, founder and director - Ecommerce, Cleartrip said, "Planning is an integral part of travel and Small World is our way of simplifying travel planning, of making the world a smaller place. Small World gives our customers easy access to thousands of pages of high quality travel content, which they can use to plan their travel."

"Small World is global in its scope, even though we currently sell only flights and hotels within India, Cleartrip is here to make things easy for people who want to travel. We saw that there was a lack of easy-to-find destination content, so we built Small World," said Bhatt.

Detailed guides are available at the country and city level, offering information about the destination - sightseeing, night life, restaurant and hotel listings as well as photo galleries, maps, currency and weather information. Maps are available from Lonely Planet and Google, giving users access to detailed street level maps. The content base will be refreshed every week to keep it up-to-date and accurate.

Mobile Technology: Next Level Innovation

Despite the recent adversity that has challenged the entire lodging industry in every facet of its operation, the relentless march of digital innovation continues unabated. Part of this is driven by the need to outperform the competition so hoteliers can promote their operations to digitally-savvy Millennial travelers, and part of it is driven by the desire to continuously find new ways to enhance the guest experience. In that regard, hotel apps that provide mobile check-in/out, room access, room service, and the capacity to control in-room lights, curtains, temperature, and television programming from a guest's personal device is fast becoming standard. Soon, new features such as voice control, facial recognition, smart rooms, and the use of A.I. for things like virtual hotel tours may be on the horizon. The January Hotel Business Review will report on how some hotels are integrating new mobile technologies into their operations to offer their guests an impressive, next level experience.
