“Travelling’’ implies connecting people from different countries, diverse regions and varied landforms. Considering the fringe benefits of travelling and tourism, Indian entrepreneurs are devising innovative startup ideas in the travel space. The old guard in the travel fraternity is steadily sweeping up the startup ecosystem and new entrants are coming in to assist travel startups. Pre-seed investments have increased and more and more organizations are catering to travel tech startups. The travel startup sector in India looks promising with several startups like OYO Rooms, ZO Rooms and Ixigo serving as a marketplace for hotels, activities, air fares, cabs, train tickets and getting the support from Sequoia Capital, Amadeus and SAIF partners. Opportunities galore in the Travel startup space with companies pushing new capital into the ecosystem by launching a new incubator, accelerator or a venture fund. However, there are many challenges. The corporate innovation strategies are exacting and require sufficient time for development. In the current scenario, it is easier to get funded in earlier rounds than subsequent rounds primarily because scaling becomes a major challenge in later stages.

So, what is in vogue in the travel startup scene? Are internet and smartphone penetration prompting startups to plunge into the sector? What are the prominent business models in this sector? How’s the funding scene in this sector ?

Demo/Elevator Pitch

Same room with same quality and service is charged differently by Hotels based on who customer is. The price for same hotel room an MNC gets < the price Online portals get < the price a travel Agent gets < the rack rate listed on hotels website. is building a IP protected technology, based on big data, that eliminates this price disparity. Everyone get best corporate rates irrespective of who the customer is.
