Bangalore, Karnataka India (PressExposure) May 23, 2011 -- HolidayIQ, the country's leading repository of data and content on vacationing, in association with Wego, a leading international travel search engine, has launched a flight booking section on its website for domestic and international flights. With increasing options for air travel and a plethora of related parameters, booking an air ticket can be an overwhelming experience, especially for the cost conscious leisure traveler. This new addition to the HolidayIQ website helps travelers search for flights across 150+ travel websites in a very short time, and allows them to compare prices and make the best choice.
The flight search facility is available for both domestic and international travel. For the travel dates given by the user, all available itineraries are displayed along with the best price for each. The user can then narrow down the search by specifying values for parameters like price range, departure time, airlines, airport, number of stops and others. Prices are shown in the currency of choice for easier decision making.
The ability to choose the outbound and return flights independently adds to the flexibility. The new flights section eases the user into the process of flight booking, without intimidating them with a multitude of filters to specify at the beginning. But thereafter, the site provides utmost flexibility with which, users can progressively narrow or expand their options and find the best ticket.
In bringing out this powerful flight search product, HolidayIQ leverages the credentials of Wego, with whom the company merged recently. Wego is a well-known flights and hotelsmetasearch company, a strong player in Asia-Pacific, making forays into other geographies. By partnering with leading airlines and travel sites and getting access to their real time data through Wego, HolidayIQ gets the best deal for the user.
In line with its objective of only facilitating the right decision by the user by providing necessary information, HolidayIQ does not actually sell the ticket. Instead, the user is directed to the airline chosen by him or her, for booking. This makes the information credible and unbiased, like with all content on HolidayIQ.One of the hallmark approaches of HolidayIQ is allowing the user to enter a custom request. If the user is not comfortable with the numerous flight options provided, he/she may enter a request for flight booking, which is then forwarded to select travel agents for fulfillment.
"We have gradually built a suite of products to help the users with their travels, which is now as powerful as our hotel product," explains Hari Nair, CEO of HolidayIQ. "Whether to travel by train, bus, road or flight, the user can turn to HolidayIQ for practical information and deals. With driving directions and weather information added, the need of the holiday-goer is completely met."
By anticipating and responding to the needs of the leisure traveler, HolidayIQ has become India's most popular travel and holiday planning site and a leader in the Indian travel media. Good holiday planning experience is what HolidayIQ aims to provide and the new flights section certainly contributes towards it.
