iTraveller is resolved to become the largest tech-enabled platform for holidays of India, with an ambitious target of $ one billion transactions by 2019. The idea is to inculcate the culture of online discovery and planning for holidays translating to a strong marketplace of travellers & native wholesale suppliers from travel destinations across the world.
iTraveller is a technology enabled market place for holidays. We have burned thousands of candles, spending hundreds of nights in crafting the philosophy of iTraveller, which is an utmost fine blend of travel and technology. iTraveller automates the native suppliers (sellers) at the backend and you at the front end, get to book your trips online.
We are not a travel agent and we don't charge any commissions from you. The idea is to cut the intermediaries, thereby bringing the best prices and value to the travellers.
iTraveller, founded in early 2012, have created a proprietary technology back bone, which functions as a market place for holidays. The travellers can discover, plan and book their trips, with options to completely customise & buy their trips online. On the supply side, iTraveller aggregates native wholesale suppliers who are responsible for the services, thereby panning out a scalable market place model, for the first time in India for holidays. The travellers who come online on iTraveller can choose their destinations, discover the hotels and transfers, compare reviews and plan their activities and sightseeing for their trips. By virtue of having the native wholesale suppliers who own the inventory and best prices on the platform, the travellers also get to discover the best available prices from the market. There are over 2 Lakhs trips created by users on iTraveller, features over 20 travel destinations across the globe and over 60 native wholesale suppliers from across these destinations. With the level of automation enabled in the supply chain of holidays, the users are able to plan & book their holidays with the same level of convenience of booking flights, hotels or bus tickets.
