yatra.com v/s makemytrip.com


Yatra.com and MakeMyTrip.com are two popular websites helping customers to book railway, airline, bus & hotel tickets. Both these websites give you the comfort of ordering tickets from home with just a click of mouse.

Let’s see a comparison of both these companies:

a.) Makemytrip.com started in 2000 ( Founded by Deepak Kalra in the year 2000). Yatra seems to have made a late entry in the world of online ticketing. Nevertheless, Yatra.com has been creating enough waves since its inception.

b.) Yatra.com offers the following booking services : airline, railway and bus tickets and reserve hotel rooms and car rentals throught call center/internet. makemytrip.com offers all the above services except railway & bus. However maketrip.com visitors also have the option of Car rentals in popular Indian cities

c.) I ran both the websites on firefox ( sorry Microsoft I’m not an IE fan ) both the websites have pretty much the same look and feel except for the fact that Yatra’s homepage seems more dominate by text/content. Perhaps Boman Irani is Yatra’s brand ambassador. Both the websites have made pitches for “holidays” both domestic & international. Yatra.com’s navigation menu ( not exactly a menu but clickable links at the top) are better from the usability perspective.

 Boman Irani Yatra

d.) Makemytrip.com has two irritating links of “We are hiring” & “Corporate level”. Two blinking bright colored links which are irritating to the eyes. ( seems they’ve used Java Script.)

e.) Yatra.com has a toll-free customer care number which was not evident on makemytrip.com’s website. (Is it there or not ? I couldn’t see a search-tab either. I’m not sure but perhaps “online ticketing websites” don’t need a search function despite, the extensive pages in the website.

f.) makemytrip.com does need people as is evident from its recruitment section. Yatra.com on the other hand has a couple of jobs in the tech. domain at its Gurgaon office. Seems makemytrip.com is on a hiring spree for people from all domains ( definitely some customer care execs. ) I didn’t google much on makemytrip’s hiring plans though. Yatra on the other hand seems to have enough people on board and wants a couple of (atleast) techies.

g .) On a 256kbps connection a search for Delhi-Pune round airtickets took 2 seconds on makemytrip.com um…. and on Yatra.com this took more than sometime. ( I actually had enough time to bring my cup of coffee.) Finally, this was the result I saw on my computer screen.

Sorry! No Results Found That Match Your Request.
 
You may want to check another date or change search options.
Please call us at 0987-1800-800 or 1800-1800-800 (Call Free) to speak with a customer services representative. .
 

A lot is left , but I need to take a break. I hope someone from Yatra/Makemytrip is reading this post and can give me some free tickets to give me some motivation.

  1. Sometimes, this may mean the kids watch television or use a smartphone so parents
    can make dinner. One is a simple recorded prank call system which plays a recording to your victim hoping that it will

  2. Benefits of krill oil Krill oil differs from fish oil in
    how the omega-3 fatty acids are structured: in fish oil
    the acids are in triglyceride form, while in krill
    oil they are in a double-chain phospholipid form.
    , livestock and poultry are fed large amounts of corn, which shifts their natural Omega-3 content to mostly Omega-6.
    The harvesting of krill is kept to a minimum so this gathering
    could go on for centuries before any real damage can be done, so the population of krill is very maintainable.

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no back up.

    Hello every one, here every one is sharing these experience, so it’s good to read this weblog, and I used to pay a visit this webpage
    daily.

  5. I also agree that makemytrip.com is far ahead from Yatra.com. As I’m fond of reading and writing blog on a daily basis then I want to share my exp here that when earlier morning I was reading one of my blog then I got amazing content and that happen is one customer of makemytrip, who is trying to book flights tickets using net banking, he didn’t have credit card so he was using Internet banking service. But biggest thing is that when he reached at payment option after that he clicked on credit card option but there was no any credit card he has. In the meanwhile, he got a phone call from makemytrip and said to customer, who was trying to book flight tickets that If you have credit card then he told theme, I have not credit card but I can access Net banking then they guided step by step that how to use Net banking while you are booking online tickets. Thus, I accepted that makemytrip is more better than Yatra.com….

    Thanks for your blog. I am frequent flyer both domestic and international and keep on checking the prices on both sites. Makemytrip really sucks. All the international ticket prices are 4000 more than that of yatra. My suggestion is always check both sites and i am damn sure the prices for international flights will always be less in yatra.com

  46. Manav

    Never seen a better comparison , The fact remains MMT & Yatra r bad for Tickets & WORST for Holiday packages.IMHO , I feel following are the best bets

    1) Flights – IXIGO.COM ,Travelocity – Ixigo is far better than anyone
    2) Hotels/Holidays : Antilogvacations.com , Thomas Cook -Antilog vacations has good rates & services
    3) Bus tickets – Always Redbus.in , they allow u to choose seats
    4) Train – IRCTC – Nothing replaces them.PERIOD..Though slow site is a problem

    MMT,Yatra ARE THE WORST & Only con end customers to fall prey..They even logo’ed my fav hyderabad sunrisers team in IPL..I simply stopped adoring them :)

  57. It is really funny thing to compare makemytrip and yatra. There are lot more OTA’s to compare:
    Expedia.co.in, Cleartrip.com and WeAreHolidays.co.in are some OTA’s which can be compared.

  58. Krishna

    Yatra does not have toll-free number. They say they have but every time I called them I was charged.

  59. Cheap Airline Tickets

    It was impossible for me to reach Mumbai as all the trains were packed. I tried many websites for good deals and was about to quit when I came across the cheap airline tickets offered by Makemytrip. I heaved a sigh of relief. http://www.makemytrip.com/flights/airlines.html

  60. Indian Airlines

    I generally go for nationalized airlines like Indian airlines. I earlier used to pay brokers for travelling around but thanks to Makemytrip I do not have to look elsewhere. This site shines for me each day.

  61. Flight Ticket Booking

    I was thinking of travelling by air as railways were defunct at that part of the country. I chose Makemytrip for flight ticket booking and found out that it certainly is a fine provider for make your trips. Recommended! http://www.makemytrip.com/flights/

  62. Cheap Air Tickets

    It certainly was a wise decision to choose your service for cheap air tickets. I got the best ticket deals and was able to go out on my honeymoon at a low budget. Makemytrip is a great choice for anyone who wants to fly cheap. http://www.makemytrip.com/flights/

  63. Cheap Airline Tickets
    Those who have never booked their air tickets on Makemytrip have simply been losing money for all these years. I checked out this site once and always come back to it for cheap airline tickets. http://www.makemytrip.com/flights/airlines.html

  64. Cheapest Air Tickets

    After days of finding the right source of cheapest air tickets, I came across your site. It certainly is the best in offering low cost deals and now I only choose your services. MakemyTrip is definitely the best in India http://www.makemytrip.com/flights/

  65. Shivaraj

    I had a very bad experience with Make My Trip Thailand vacation. The Hotels were very bad compared to what they showed in the website. And most of all they had removed important places from the itinerary in and around Bangkok. We realized it later when we spoke to our guide and had pay extra money to visit the actual places of interest.

  66. Cheap Air Tickets

    My travel agent was asking for a huge commission which he did not deserve. So I wanted a change and logged on to the web for booking cheap air tickets. After comparing the prices offered by different sites I came to know that MakemyTrip is the best that you can a traveller can choose to go for. http://www.makemytrip.com/flights/

    Airlines in India
    It is easy for one to book the air tickets for the Airlines in India as there are many websites offering such services. But if you are looking for discounts and deals which will make you save a lot of money then you should try Makemytrip http://www.makemytrip.com/flights/airlines.html

    Great information :)

  72. anayak

    Recent yatra.com experience
    The booking from yatra.com was never confirmed – though the email confirmation clearly mentioned it. And the amount was charged.

    Needed to buy new tickets at the airport. The airline had no information about the bookings.

    On talking to the customer service – Apparently they will return the money to the credit card – thanks!

    It will be some time before I go back to yatra.com

  73. Sravan

    I had to book my ticket through makemytrip.com in nov 2011 and even I was charged FTF of about 100$ I realized that after 2 months and when I called then they asked me to resolve it with my bank and they couldnt help it.
    Unprofessional.

  74. MakeMyTrip is an Indian travel site who just thought it would be cool to run the same business in US without having any idea about US laws or customers. Also as many suggested they are cheaters and I would highly recommend to not buy any tickets from them.
    I bought a ticket from my Mother and I was quoted a price in US $ but charged in INR leading to FTF from my bank. They promised to refund this fee in 7-10 days but after 15 phone calls and 20 emails I am still struggling with them. They ahev started asking for bank statement and other things like conference call with the bank representative that violates the privacy of the customer. They also dont have any insurance to protect the customer privacy so don’t be surprised if you entire contact details are posted on some marketing sites or misued by some anti-social elements.

  75. Ankit

    Hi i am ankit. Trust me dont take any trip from Make my trip. They are cheaters, liers & a slap should be put on their face. Dont book anything from MMT. A kind advice to all the internet users. I opted for an international trip from them and they do not deliver what they promise..

    • Vineet

      Wow…Are you replying on behalf of MMT? If yes, then I’m amazed…
      You’ve got the audacity to revert on this issue after ages…
      And yes my name is Vineet and I booked the ticket for my father, Suresh who does not happen to be quite tech- savvy.
      I did get the refund…but not on the next day…get your facts right…also refer to records to understand what my concern really was instead of trying to be so smart.
      I was not concerned about getting my money back…It was an urgent trip and I wanted a confirmed booking. Moreover, I was willing to pay to get a confirmed booking. You guys promised a callback which never came.
      My question to you is why commit in the first place when you cannot deliver on your promises? Check your call center records…I called up several times to get this sorted but to no avail.
      I had to make my own arrangements at the last moment.
      I’m really surprised to know that a major travel company like you does not have the time to investigate and take care of escalations…Maybe you guys have too much on your plate than you can chew and that’s why you are taking customers for granted…

      • Vineet

        ‘KIND ATTENTION- All the readers and customers of MMT’
        Plz refer to my issue, reply and MMT’s response posted here…Instead of taking ownership and apologizing they question the customer’s integrity…
        Plz don’t ever book with them as they won’t help you if anything goes wrong with your booking…They are just good for extracting money…no after sales service at all…

        Dear MMT- My response to your today’s comment is- How on earth do you think I have the booking details and MMT Id if I’m not the customer?
        I booked this ticket for my father who’s name is Suresh Gupta.

  77. Kamaljit

    Make my trip is cheater, they promise a lot, but delivers nothing. Their service is pathetic.

    • Vineet

      Very True…They cheat people all the time…I’m also one of the customers who has been taken for granted. Plz try and spread the word so that other people do not get mistreated.

  78. Vineet

    PLZ DO NOT EVER BOOK THROUGH MAKEMYTRIP
    I tried booking a flight ticket through MakeMyTrip.com yesterday. It was an urgent booking which did not go through but they charged my card against a booking id NF2513317188332….wow…they have the audacity to charge the card, generate the booking ID but say that ‘the booking is not confirmed’. The message displayed on the website after the payment page said that ‘due to unavailability of seats your tickets cannot be confirmed’. I was zapped to see that the seats and the same fare that I was trying to book was still available even after several hours. Called up customer care but did not get any help…they are horrible, unprofessional people. They said that due to a ‘technical error’ I was still able to see the particular fare online but the seats were actually not available. I wasted almost 4 hours on phone with them to sort this out….They promised a callback which never came…They are conducting business in a shady and most unprofessional manner…misleading the customers and then not even bothering to assist them. I would not suggest anyone to book through them…Please consider other travel companies and do not ever try MakeMyTrip…You’ll just be wasting your time and money….these guys are least bothered…I guess they have more on their plate than they can chew which has made them unprofessional and highly irresponsible. I wish I could also paste all the screenshots here that I took to prove what a shady company they are….The so called ‘special fare’ is still very much available online and they are still fooling & harassing countless customers through their ‘ever so inefficient website.’
    If any of you have had a similar bitter experience then do share it with as many people as you can…it might help a lot of them.

      Makemytrip is the worst site.. their offers are fraudulent and will never be beneficial to a customer.
      go to other travel website or even your local dealer will be able to give you the same deal but taking it from Make my trip is a hassle

  83. Anto

    All
    Please beware of Makemytrip. Here is my worst history.
    I booked 3 tickets from bangalore to my Trivandrum for my grandama’s death.
    I booked on Jan 13th for 10.30pm flight around 11 am
    the same day.
    makemy trip says its confirned and they agreed i will receive etickets with in 2 hours thru email.
    i did not receive any mails till 5 pm even after following up heavily with makemytrip. Then I asked makemytrip whether I have atleast teh ticket confirmed, so that I can check with Jetairways.
    They said I can talk to Jetairways once I reach airpot. I called Jetairways they said nothing is booked for my name. I was shocked. I asked them whether tickets are available, they said its available. SO I went and cancelled the ticket and booked thru jetwairways. Anyways same cost the ticket was. Note: my flight is in 10.30 pm and makemytrip never repsonded even after I said I need to travel to aiport which will take nearly 2 hrs from my place. They made me frustrated heavily.
    Next another issue regarding payments. They took the money for 3 tickets, after cancelling they need to refund. they refuncded also the next day. I was happy that atleast they refunded on time. But sudennly today they debited 9000 from my account. I dont know whether and what for this is deducted. I am still fighting for my amount.

    Please note this is for every on who reads this. Please dont go for makemytrip. There is no sure for your money and eticket. better choose some airline website. not the vendor sites.

  84. I used to be recommended this website through my cousin. I’m not certain whether or not this post is written through him as no one else recognize such particular about my trouble. You’re wonderful! Thanks!

  85. I voted for both companies. I got benefits from makemytrip and yatra. Their services are good for customers. I suggested to my friends and they are also used their services. Anyways your article was simply good. Good stuff. Thanks for sharing with us.

  86. nice work.. we do river rafting in rishikesh

  87. as far as flight booking services are concerned, yatra and makemytrip both have taken a lead in the industry, but in my opinion makemytrip still goes number one.

  90. Yatra.com is much better than Makemytrip.com in perspective to Customer service..So,i prefer Yatra.com always.

    • Shawna

      Yatra.com is by far the worst company I have ever had the displeasure of calling. It is simply the worst. I have been on the phone with many representatives for SIX hours trying to resolve a payment issue and non-confirmation of a roundtrip i purchased from Goa to HYD for Diwali holiday. Each person I spoke to said that I hadn’t paid, and I told them over and over again that the full payment amount was deducted from my bank account. I even sent them an email with the relevant entries. Now they’re saying that’s not enough and they won’t even give me a refund unless I take a screenshot of the statement and email it to me. They don’t seem to bear any responsibility for their own actions and now I am being forced to pay double the price to get to HYD because of their own incompetence. Yatra.com is the WORST. DON’T EVER USE IT. My issue is still unresolved six hours and COUNTLESS calls later.

  91. Wow nice article…In my opinion Yatra.com new TVC campaign will surely boost people to book more on Yatra and also unique visitors also increase.

  92. sam

    I think both are good in the marketing strategies but i feel like make my trip has more high level advertizement in USA and India. If i am not wrong i remember they are into business B4 yatra. I have noticed that both has almost same kind of deals on all the airline expect Airindia and Jet airways.

    • Rita

      Hi Sam, do you have any feedback about holiday package services provided by make my trip. Is they are reliable? Can we take tour package from them; any feedback will be really very helpful.
      Thanks

      • Raunak Dembla

        Hi Rita, MakeMyTrip is very reliable when it comes to their holiday packages. They offer all 3 meals, good and comfortable accommodation, cover pretty much what there is to see in a place. In the end, they make sure you go back with a smile on your face. Though they may not give you you vouchers on time, be sure that you will get it atleast 24hrs before departure. On the whole, MakeMyTrip gives you a wonderful experience. I have been on their Amazing Ladakh and I can tell that with confidence. Overall, 4.5 on 5. MakeMyTrip is what we need.

  93. I got a pathetic experience.i booked my train ticket from Ahmedabad to Mumbai which i cancelled and enquired for reimbursement.no one replied satisfactorily in customer care,keep on passing the calls ..i wrote so many mails but only empty replies .till date my money is not reimbursed. for train enquiries no Customer care executive is provided to whom you can address. with mails empty reply.our hard earned money is seems to be wasted with so much stress.in future i may not able to use the service of yatra .com if they treat their customers in this way

  94. K L Joshi Babu

    I am having a pretty pathetic experience with yatra.com. They came with a promotional of Discover the world and since I found it interested went a head and purchased it. In meanwhile planning for a travel in the next week. They told to get the voucher no. it will take 48 hours, which I waited for and did not come through. My ticket booking was getting delayed and ticket prices are going higer by day. When I asked for explanation, they asked to speak with shiftthoughts.com which they are dealing with. I spoke with them, they are telling it is due to some technical reason they are not able to provide the voucher no. and all possible reasons. Even yatra couldnt moderate on this issue and I am not able to get back the money or voucher on time, which I required. So I am going ahead and buying tickets in makemytrip.cm

  95. This season you will get lot of e tickets with discount

  96. thanks fro sharing this valuable information here
    this will really help customers to compare the top ota on various parameters..very nice post…..

  97. thanks for providing this comparative article here nice comparison like the post….

  98. i found yatra.com a good OTA…the best in the industry..nice post thanks for sharing valuable info here..

  99. Booking Order Number : 31051111467 and 31051112687. My name is Joseph from Chennai. I wanted to take my mom from Chennai to Vizag to visit her nun sister who is 90. Then I wanted to take both to Kolkota to visit another nun sister and then return back along the same route. As this was their dream before any one dies, I took the initiative to spend and take them comfortably by flights. I depended on Yatra.com (my first and last mistake).
    I booked all the tickets for 41K by looking into the cheapest and most convenient flights. I got the booking reference number and the money was taken from the bank. Yesterday, I call them to find out how to get the e-tickets, and they told me that they had issued a full refund for the bookings due to a technical issue. I told them to make those bookings active as my plans were as planned. They told me later that the prices are higher now and I will need to spend 49K for the same flights. I did not want to see a heart break for the 90 year old, so I was desperate as well.
    Yatra agents were saying that they understand the problem but cannot help. I changed my tone and asked them for a proper reason for the issue, and told them that this causes emotional problems to the aged, and I wanted to talk to the higher authorities. They said that even the higher authorities will say the same thing. I said that I am going to take the matter to RTI.
    Then they tried to find some lame excuse by saying that the card did not go through. I said, if the card did not go through, how did you all receive my money which you are trying to refund? They went “Mouthshut” for some time, and then told me that they will call back within one hour with a superior agent. I waited and waited and no one called.
    So, I had to make fresh bookings to make my aunt’s dreams come alive. The moral of the incidence – Never depend on Yatra, they may cancel your tickets if they feel you got them for a cheaper price and then make you pay more. NEVER TRUST YATRA, go directly to the concerned airlines and book them directly, that is what I did.

  100. Sunil

    Yatra.com which is an online travel company is a big fraud. I was cheated by them when I booked an air ticket from US to India. Just 3 days before my scheduled departure they informed me that my reservation was canceled by airline because yatra.com didn’t provide them some info. even when there is no fault on my side they didn’t refund me anything. I’m going to file a law suit against them in US soon.please beware of this web site. search about this company online and you will find lots of complaints about fraud and cheating.

  101. I actually like what you submit here. Highly insightful and intelligent. One problem though. I’m running Opera with Debian and parts of your current structure pieces are a little wonky. I realize it’s not a regular set up. Yet it’s an issue to keep in mind. I hope that it will help and continue to keep up the top notch quality writing.

  102. pushpa wadhwani

    recently travelled to Sikkim and booked tickets and lodging through make my trip. had a good experience overall. Kids were happy with selection of hotels.

  103. angoor khatte

    I travel a lot by air and each time, i book the flights online. My personal experience says that YATRA SUCKS!!! make my trip is far better managed and gives better results. Flight rates are more or less the same on both. So yatra is as good as mmt as long as you dont have to modify or cancel your booking. If that is the case, then yatra will make you go mad. Makemytrip is much better as far as cancellations are concerned. I am surely never going to use yatra ever again..

  104. Both travel portal are good for online bookings…………

  105. Make your booking at Yatra.com and get flights at cheaper rates……….

  106. kaushik7b

    Both offer nice platform to book tickets online. In my opinion yatra provide better offers as compared to mmt.

  107. most travel sites have very nice webpages and their services are very nice too. .’”

  108. the travel packages that i have seen on the internet are sometimes oversold, they are cheap yet the inclusions sucks *-,

  109. Myhappyjourney was also doing good in kerala tour packages and himachal tour packages

    • semma gulla

      so what?? laddoo khilaoon?

    • Rita

      Hi Karthik,
      Would you please let me know have u taken Kerala package from make my trip. I am also planning to take kerala package and need to know your experience before that. Howz ur , everything is managed well as per itinerary? please share as it will be big helpful for me.
      Thanks

  110. the nice article,i guess both of these travel portals are good as i have good experience with both of these travel sites.

  111. Make My Trip and Yatra both are good for travel need but I would like to let you know that ezeego1 is also a good online travel portal.

  112. both offer nice platform to book tickets online. In my opinion yatra provide better offers as compared to mmt.

  113. yatra is one of the leading online ticket booking site that has huge fan following as its name is related to
    travel.

  114. according to me mmt stands out of the two.

  115. RH

    I have had a terrible experience with yatra.com. I booked domestic flights online which I later needed to cancel due to a change in schedule.

    When I booked the flights the confirmation email from Yatra.com informed me that the flight was refundable and I would be charged 750rs per person and a 200rs fee to cancel the booking (amounting to a total £23). Fine I thought. Until I tried to cancel the booking.

    Yatra.com wanted to charge a total of £40, made up of what they call ‘Yatra profit’, airline tax and Yatra service fee. Nowhere on their site or on the booking confirmation were these additional charges advertised. I queried these charges and asked them to refund what was owed to me.

    They seem to be rather illiterate at Yatra.com HQ as I keep receiving the same email telling me the charge includes a Yatra profit, despite me telling them they can’t just whack on charges however they feel unless they were advertised at the time of booking.

    I’ve reached the end of my tether with this company and have now disputed the charges with my credit card company who have informed me they’ve received 100′s of complaints about Yatra.com.

    I would highly recommend you stay well away from Yatra.com unless you enjoy getting ripped off.

  116. Both these sites are good and in neck to neck competition with each other, but cleartripoffers is much more better then these two, as it is very simple to book ticket through this site and you can find cheap air tickets along with various deals.

  117. You forget about Myhappyjourney.com
    A fast up comming travel portal competes with travel masti,travelchacha

  118. It is good to see that Indian Travel sector is booming and as there is lot of competition all OTA’s and Travel services providers are offering huge discounts and offers to its customers. All are fighting to get more customers and at the end customer is getting benefit of it.

  119. Nice comparison between two top travel portal in India.

  120. your writing skills are really impressive. acc to me yatra.com is better as its name is related to travel

  121. Nicely researched comparison of top 2 OTA’s of India. Hows cleartrip doing?

  122. From the user interface point of view, Yatra definitely scores over MakeMyTrip but MakeMyTrip is still the biggest travel website after IRCTC.co.in and sells more tickets than any other India websites.

  123. tanish

    I want to take part

  124. Nice comparison of top 2 OTA’s of India. I too agree in usability yatra.com has the edge over make my trip. But in this ever growing tech world you never know who actually has the edge. cleartrip flights is another upcoming player.

  125. I think MakeMyTrip and Yatra both are big players in travel industry and there are thousands of happy customers of these sites. There may be some exceptions, but their allover performance if very good. Besides these Cleartrip is also providing great travel solutions.

  126. john

    mmt is really doing good these days in terms of bus ticket selling in comparision with yatra also they have recently take over the ticketvala to increase the spread among the bus tickets, that is good, hope to have soon bus tickets in b2b offered by mmt! thanks John

    http://www.kingfisherairlinesbooking.ind.in

  127. Instead of makemytrip, I advice of Yatra.com and Indiatravelplanner.in to book travel packages and hotel services.

  128. Manoj

    makemytrip really sucks .. They are very good until things are good. Once there is any issues/problem they are useless. I am telling from my personal experience. We had got 6 tickets together booked via makemytrip and the flight got cancelled and they did a mess out of the rebooking .. The agents were unresponsive and very irresponsible. All our plans and comnnecting flight/train tickets were in a mess. The plan that we did before 2 months to make a smooth travel ended up with a fiasco .. many hours of phone calles with the agents and .. I can make a movie out of it .. Seriously.

    Having a good brand or advertising on TV does not make a good company .. You need to be a good company and make your customer happy .. Automatically you will be a very good company .

  129. Hi,

    The information on this blog about yatra.com is very good

    In http://www.makemytrip.ae site you will get very useful information about travel news.

  130. This is very worst and bad site. This is very much fraud site. Don’t believe these people. They are very bad . Makemytrip makes your trip very tensed and confused. I am going to complaint in consumer court about this. we shouldn’t leave these people like this.

    • sreedhar

      I agree with kalpana, Yatra.com is big fraud. The customer care is worst and I lost 15,000 rupees on air ticket. Please, please donot book any flight from this site.

      • sreedhar

        I agree, I recently had bad experience and I had to loose 30,000rupees becuase of Yatra.com negligence. Please donot buy any tickets through this site it is big fraud.

      • yatra.com people are just fraud. they dupe people. my hubby made online booking of flight from delhi to sydney and paid 25% of payment through credit card. next day he issued check of rest of the payment . he daily enquired the status abt check but these people are so irresponsible that they do not respond. frequent calls were made on customer care numbers but they always kept our calls on hold. or they simply said we will inform you. we even mailed to members of borad of directors expressing negligence of these people. but everything in vain. they lingered on the process till 30 days. n after dat they said, your booking has now expired because you havnt made rest of payment within 30 days. we were duped of 11000.
        so people beware of this site. they are intentionally doing all this. even the office address given on their site does nt exist.

  131. Vip

    AVOID these people at all cost. They booked my flight to India, gave me a confirmation number, and even charged my credit card. Then they later tell me that nothing was booked but my credit card was still charged. Now I am stuck having to pay a higher price (from another website) because it too close to the travel date. They have horrible customer service. After being on hold for a total of 2 hours they literally hung up on me. Didn’t say bye or or sorry just hung up on me. DO NOT USE THESE PEOPLE.

    • sreedhar

      Please donot buy any tickets through Yatra.com. Its a big fraudulent site supported by big investors.
      Please donot trust Yatra.com, I lost 30,000rupees and never compensated.

  132. Raj

    Yatra – Donto buy them at all unless you have plenty of time and lot of patience to yell at the agnets to get the things done

    You may never get yoru tikcets, but for sure your Blood Pressure will increase

  133. Abhishek

    AVOID YATRA

    Hopeless Service.
    I dont know how they got award…may be by bribing judges :)

    They dont have any Service Level Agreements…they take their own sweet time like 6 months to refund amount for a cancelled booking. MAY BE THEY WANT TO EARN SOME INTEREST FROM THE MONEY.

    Customer service provides service in which they will NEVER REPLY to your mail/complaint.

  134. Ajay Singh

    BEWARE OF YATRA: They entice you with deceptive offers, take money from your credit card and they try to confuse you!!!

    Here is a public service announcement for corporations and busy individuals who may not notice money wrongly being removed from them by an organisation they assume is legitimate, or have time to resolve problems:

    Yatra, a relatively new entrant to the Indian travel scene, which is spending huge sums on marketing, and regularly runs enticing promotions, is likely to cost you more than you think, without you knowing it.

    I recently purchased flights from them, and then when I came to make a repeat purchase, signed up for one of their special offers. The small print of this special offer gave me the option of paying part of the amount later, but instead Yatra demanded extra money at the time of payment. The end result: they took money from my card without my authority, and ignore emails sent to them querying their actions. My likely next step is to go to a lawyer, but how many organisations or busy individuals will do this, if the even notice the over-charging?

    So, if you think have been tricked by Yatra (and they will try to deceive you into thinking that you, or someone else is to blame), please send me a short email, and depending upon the response, my company may take further action, with a view to forcing Yatra to modify their behaviour, or pay financial compensation to everyone they have mis-treated.

  135. book air tickets in india at discount.

  136. Frank Viegas

    DO NOT BOOK WITH YATRA.
    I had a confirmed booking and my money was deducted immediately. But when I turned up at the airport, the airline informed me that no reservation had been made. I managed to book another ticket at the spot and tried chasing Yatra.com for my refund.
    LOUSIEST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER. I was promised a refund 3 times and I am still chasing it a 3 weeks later. They can’t find my reference number, their telephone lines do not work, they promise a call-back and nothing happens, etc, etc, etc.
    To add insult to injury, I spent about 25£ in roaming charges. Nobody has apologised or agreed to compensate me for the hassle, expense and stress this sorry affair has cost me.
    So, don’t book with Yatra.com if you want stress free travel.Wish I had checked them up online before I used their website. There are loads of irate customers.

  137. look like domestic airlines like jetlite, airdeccan as lower there airfares

  138. John Rosa

    Yatra Sucks.
    Yatra customer service is highly unprofessional.

    They still havent refunded my money – it has been over 5 months. They keep saying, “oh yea, we’re working on it;

    there is some complication;blah blah” and keep blaming the airline.
    They dont call me back even after saying they’ll call back with an update on a specific date/time.
    Very unprofessional company and customer service. They are the worst!
    You’re better off buying a ticket directly from an airline.
    The assistant manager for the call center in Delhi area is

    extremely rude and unprofessional. They dont care about the customer at all.

    They should not be in this airline business. Period.
    I would not recommend anyone to use their services.
    I made a mistake – i should have searched on the internet about them and read about all the bad customer

    experiences before thinking of booking a ticket through them.
    Lesson learned.

    I am thinking of taking legal action against Yatra.

  139. FURSTRATED CUSTOMER

    YATRA.COM, ONE OF THE WORST SERVICE FOR ONLINE BOOKINGS. I JUST HAD A HORRIFIC EXPERIENCE WITH THIS ONLINE BOOKING PORTAL, WITH PAYMENT MADE FOR MORE THAN 10 DAYS AND TICKETS NOT CONFIRMING.

    SOME OF THE WORST SERVICE TO LIST HERE:
    1. THE CALL CENTER EXECUTIVES, SEEMS NOT BOTHER THE TIME OF THE CUSTOMERS AND PUT ON HOLD FOR EVERY QUESTION ASKED. THE HOLD TIME THERE IS NO LIMIT AND CAN EXTEND TO 10-15 MINUTES, WITH THE DESPERATE CUSTOMER MADE THE PAYMENT WAITING THE OTHER END.

    2. NO PROCESS OF PROPER HAND OVER, IF THE CALL CENTER REP FINISHES HER WORK, AND THE CUSTOMER TO REPEAT THEIR CONCERN ALL OVER AGAIN.

    3. NO PROCESS DEFINED FOR THE ONLINE BOOKING MADE VS PHONE BOOKING. IF THE CUSTOMER ENDS UP DOING A ONLINE BOOKING FOR THE ITENARY RECEIVED BY TEH CALL CENTER REP, THE REP HAS ADVANTAGE OF CANCELLING THE ITENARY OR CHANGING IT AS PER THEIR NEEDS.

    THE TICKETS WILL NOT ISSUED AND INVETIBLY BE FORCED TO CHANGE THE ITENARY.

    4. THE CANCELLATION TIME FOR THE REFUND CAN TAKE MORE THAN 30 DAYS. THE MONEY SPENT FOR INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL CLOSE TO 1LAKH IS LEFT WITH THEM, FOR LONG PERIOD, WITH CUSTOMER HAVING TOUGH TIME REARRANGING THE MONEY.

    5. NO CONSIDERATION OF THE CUSTOMER REQUIREMENT, ABOUT THE DEPARTURE DATE AND ARRIVAL DATE AS PER THE NEEDS.

    CEO OR THE MANAGEMENT OF YATRA, ITS HIGH TIME YOU GUYS WAKE UP TO THE CUSTOMER SEVICE AND LEARN SOME OF THE BASICS OF IT.

    IT WONT BE TOO LONG, YOU GUYS BOOKING AIRTRAVEL WILL END UP TRAVELING IN CYCLE RICKSHAW’S IF THIS CONTINUES.

    • santhosh

      Even I lost big sum becuase of Yatra.com negligence which they never compensated. Please spread the word so no one else get ripped by this fraudulent site. Please donot encourage Yatra.com or its big investors behind to rip anyone.

  140. I think yatra.com in very popular now a days and also provides cheapest rates for all categories of booking.

    Hi,

    Your comparison is too old now a days there are so many new changes in Yatra & MMT website. I think you should go through the website again and write a new comparison or review.

    I am eagerly waiting for your new review.

  143. Make My Trip prices maybe lower but their service is horrible…If you are expecting any responses from them just forget it..

  146. phani

    Never book your tickets thru “MAKE MY TRIP”

    It has one of the worst customer service representatives. They are just the call centers attitude which we watch in movies – just having fun with one other, keep the customers call on stand, not even placing on hold.

    IF you ever feel you didnt receive your ticket within 3 days – then think that you lost your money and donated to someone else.

    MAKE MY TRIP IS JUST A PAIN IN THE ASS..

  147. If you are traveling from us to india, then you should visit this site to book your tickets online with an additional 30 dollar discount.

  148. this is a great idea..

  149. K Ravi

    Friends Make my trip is useless and a very unmanaged for booking any International Flights they directly violate the norms and treaty of the Government of India. PLEASE NEVER BOOK AN INTERNATIONAL TICKETS FROM MAKE MY TRIP ESPECIALLY BETWEEN DELHI AND KATHMANDU.

    9911168029

  150. Yatra and Make my trip both are goo brands of Indian Travel market. I have used Makemytrip once.

  151. Vikram Singh

    Hi this is vikram ….

    when we talked about the comperision between yatra.com vs makemytrip.com…its going to be totaly defferent.Both companies are online companies,when we cmparing with the services both are not stand at the level of satisfaction.i ahve such a lot of friends those utilized the services but they are not much satisfied….

    Hope you all can understand…..

    Regards,
    Vikram Singh

  152. Tarun

    Just wondering if the comparision is restricted to services being offered in Indian Destinations only??? Any website which provides the cheapest fare for International destinations?

  153. hi my self ruby bhatia from mumbai, i have book air ticket from mumbai to delhi from the website habing gr8 discunt offers on air tickets

  154. Sudhir

    * Yatra has no concern for their customers* My experience with Yatra has been otherwise Big names like Reliance and TV18 etc does not necessarily mean that the service rendered would be world clsss. While it looks nice to see things on their Portal, on the ground reality is different ! I had done Hotel bookings thru them this April for a family holiday in May and to my surprise even after the money was 100%charged in advance to my CC, I found the Hotels refusing to confirm the bookings. On notifying the anomaly to them, an11th hour attempt by Yatra yielded result and they found a hotel some 145 kms away from my destination ! Finally I had to search a hotel which was reluctantly booked by yatra but was still some 20kms from the downtown area and I had to pay thru my nose everyday for an up-down travel by taxi. One one such occasion we al had to walk 3 kms and face humiltion at the hand of Taxi drivers and seek help from police to avert a situation.

    In the other case, I was offered a very dingy cottage (one can call it a servant room) at a resort instead of a room booked and confirmed thru them. After hours long arguments, I had to check in at another hotel and pay thru my nose.
    The very purpose of going on a vacation with family, with advance bookings done, is to enjoy a hassle free vacation but that is the last of the concerns with the people at Yatra. Till date, despite so many reminders, Yatra has not even bothered to call back and apologise. Their sales manager Arpit Seth has no empathy for the poor clients. Net net, my vacation was royally sc***d and my family keeps cursing me for no fault of mine.

  155. A.Khare

    I’m looking for a cheap airfare for Delhi-London-Delhi end of August. Any suggestions? I’ve been through both Yatra and MMT and the prices seem quite high.

  156. sss

    DONT use Yatra

    My flight was cancelled in Feb 2008.

    They would not believe me that the flight did not fly and insisted that I went to the airport to get the cancellation in writing. Meanwhile I had to take a train to get back to delhi to catch my connection. I have had to get the airline to e mail the confirtmation of the cancellation.

    5 months later still have NOT received refund of fight despite repeated promises and international phone calls.

    YATRA give travel sites a bad name.

    I will deal directly with airlines in future.

  157. book indigo airlines thrugh this website with cash back offer

  158. Harsh

    Never ever book you rinternational holidays at Yatra. I’ve travelle dthrough makemytrip and Yatra. Everything was done within 3 days including Visa , tickets, hotels to Singapore by makemytrip. Howeevr, I need to make at least 10 calls to get a single reply from yatra guys. They just sent a mail saying send your passport to this address. Can you beleive it – wiout any information or other thing, can you send a passport to any arbitrary address.

  159. I booked my tickets thrgh yatra and they were comparitively reasonable and am planning to book my whole trip with them

  160. I I hope you ,ll get back to me imm

  161. Hey good comparion. I personally prefer a nice clean UI that loads quicklyo on my wireless data card connection. Availability of best prices is the top criteria though. Did my own analysis few days ago.

  162. The interface on bookcheapest.com is especially nice– you can select which airports, flight time, and it shows you how the price fluctuates to help you better deduce which concessions are worth it. I always check a few sites before purchasing and found that I can assure myself a good price by purchasing about 4 weeks in advance of my flight. If you purhcase too early, fares are often much higher.

  163. http://www.bookcheapest.com
    This site really has competitive pricing. I used them for my last 2 trips. I got better deals than the other websites

  164. this site is selling airlines tickets online, i have book air tickets from this site.

    I recently booked a travel package from yatra and they took the money the price seemed to good to be true which is was! My trip was very disorganised and I got 3rd class service. yatra may offer cheaper packages but for a few more rupees I wish I had gone with make my trip, Yatra is a total rip off! Never again!

    Yatra service is awful. I had done a booking (for abroad trip) and cancelled it alter. The money has nto been refunded even after 4 months. I am abroad and helpless. I call their customer service and they keep foolign me .I am absolutly fed up with Yatra service .

    I used to handle corporate account in Makemytrip and here are my reviews:
    1. Slow process and over all very messy
    2. Rates are not competitive
    3. Needs hell lot of improvement on Customer service / relations
    4. Right hand does not know what left hand is doing
    5. makemytrip lacks leadership in management
    6. no autonomy given to the managers

  178. karen

    Ezeego is very slowww when you go and submit the ICICI credit card information. I tried many times but it is so slow that I can take a nap while filling the information.

  179. Tarun

    Yatra is better than Makemytrip. Makemytrip is expensive and does not have any offers. One of my friend in the travel industry said that Makemytrip is more of a “Jhola-Chap” rather than professional.

  180. ragini

    PLEASE DO NOT USE MAKEMYTRIP.COM. I booked flights to bangalore and they swiped/charged my credit card THREE times the price listed online. When I called their customer service (which sucks btw), they refused to look into the matter and said that I must have booked the ticket thrice for same people same time flight…I could not believe what I heard from them. I tried to speak with the manager/supervisor ( they give stupid names Henzing, dubsig.etc) but even they could not help me in this matter. I DID NOT GET SORRYfor their faulty website instead I PAID Rs 900 the Cancellation charge for each of the bookings. I have been using yatra and other websites to book air tickets but never experienced such problems.

    I heard from my friends that makemytrip sometimes charges more than the what is on the confirmation while booking hotels.

  181. yatra vc makemytrip
    intresting reading..but lets look at the facts..
    i’ve compared between almost all sites including the booking sites of the airlines but still i prefer yatra…
    not online sometimes it cheaper than those of airline sites..but also user friendly…
    its better than makemytrip or any travel site in india..not only for the cost factor but also for user friendly perspective..

    couple of weeks back I had done a brief comparison between few players in Indian airfare search space. This post is a follow-up to that. In the previous post, I did miss a few of them that I have covered here.
    This post compares 6 different Indian travel air fare search sites. It may happen that I may have still missed out someone. With this space getting so crowded and a new launch happening literally every month, it is difficult to know all of them.
    Following are Indian air fare search sites I will be considering:
    • Yatra
    • Ezeego
    • Cleartrip
    • makemytrip
    • Indiatimes Travel
    • Travelguru
    the comparison is based on following parameters and weightage:
    Sr.No Comparison parameter Weightage
    1 Ticket Fare prices ? / 10
    2 Flight Options given ? / 7
    3 Destinations available ? / 5
    4 User friendliness ? / 5
    5 Other services ? / 3
    Grand Total ? / 30
    Following is the search criteria used.
    Travel: Oneway from Bangalore to Chennai
    Travel Date: Date 20th October 2007
    Passengers: 1 Adult
    ________________________________________
    Search Result Page: (Click on the thumbnail below to view the search results.)

    Lowest Fare: Rs. 2,085 (Rs. 500 + Rs. 1585 taxes and Fees).

    1 Ticket Fare prices 7/ 10

    3 Destinations available 4 / 5
    4 User friendliness 2 / 5
    5 Other services 2 / 3
    Total Marks 22 / 30

    Analysis:
    Ticket fare prices: I think Yatra gave a price for 2,085/- which I think is acceptable, but not cheap. They had a discount of 15% for American Express Card members for Jet Airways flight. The prices they offered were for Indigo.
    Flight Options: Yatra gave only 4 options.
    Destinations available: Yatra gets good marks on this. They had some destinations that I had not even heard of.
    User Friendliness: The biggest drawback of Yatra was, it was not user friendly at all. There was too much clutter and it was quite confusing. They really need to improve and make the whole process much simpler. Being one of the oldest in this business they still carry the look and feel of web1.0.
    Others service: They offer most of the other services that a traveler may require and hence good marks on that front.

    Analysis:
    Ticket fare prices: Ezeego offered a price for 2,103/-similar to previous one. The prices they offered were for Air Deccan.
    Flight Options: Ezeego gave good options. The surprising aspect was the prices of some of the options exceeded Rs. 2800/-. I am not sure how their algorithm works, but these kind of results have to be filtered out.
    Destinations available: Ezeego also offered most of the destinations in India.
    User Friendliness: Ezeego was neither bad nor very user friendly. The prices displayed were quite confusing. However, I arrived at booking screen in 2 clicks.
    Others service: They offer most of the other services that a traveler may require and hence high marks on that front.

    Destinations available: Cleartrip also offered most of the destinations in India.
    User Friendliness: ClearTrip was one of the most user friendly and easy to use site. within One click the screen showed the best options after calculating the taxes.
    Others service: Unlike most of the other sites ClearTrip only offered hotels other than travel booking.

    TravelGuru is India’s largest hotel network but they also give options to book flights. However, according to me, they should not offer flight services till they get the services in proper order. The search was confusing.

  189. acexie1

    I just booked a trip from yatra.com and not only do they have great customer service, but I find that they offer the same packages as makemytrip.com only a lot more cheaper. Besides, I had to call makemytrip.com more than 4 times, to get a quote, and email the rep 3 times! The overall service was not at all personal or friendly as Yatra.com. I think makemytrip.com needs to pull up their socks up, because they definitly lost my business (which by the way was by no means a cheap package) but the price and service given to me by Yatra leads by a 100%

    Rajivkg … Great link. I also did my research on all the OTA’s and found yatra to be best as they always provide some sort of discount. i picked up 50% off on hotels last month. ixigo is good but they are not Online Travel company but they show rates of all airlines and couple of other online agents. Then they transfer you to thier site to complete the booking. They should do thier own fullfilment rather then sending to other people.

  191. Interesting comments:) But why is it that the online travel portals are going retail…….

    hi,
    can any body gimme the office address of IXIGO.com

  195. Interesting observations on this thread. Should have got here sooner though!

    Looks like the readers /contributors have a real understanding of the scope of the travel agencies. We just started off a new webportal tailored to meet the requirements of the travelling public from US to INDIA and back.

    During our initial pilot, we had enquires flowing in but to keep our honest with us customer expectations, we were taking the cut in our commissions to award a ticket.

    I wish to ask the contributor, if there is a way to balance the projectedfare (on which our customer visit us) with the actual fares when the ticket is purchased. As you would see in our site link,http://www.esavari.com we estimate the fares by seasonal zones which is fast changing due to the sudden spike in travel agents reservations.

    Do you think, we should drop the idea since what we see from makemytrip and competing sites, they claim to offer realtime prices. In addition what would happen to our travel agents ?? ( minus the online travel vendors).

    Thank you for your feedback.

    on iXiGO.com – 5648 Rs.

  197. Rajeev ,

    Thanks for your kind comment :)

    Pretty interesting, on doing a fare search for Delhi-Pune return flight 14th-16th August, I find a subtle difference between the fares on CT and makemytrip.com

    5,666 – CT
    6k + – makemytrip

    Now, there are reasons to evaluate these sites on parameters like price etc.

  198. Hi Daksh,

    Interesting comparison. Have you compared either of these sites to Cleartrip?

    I am sure that the CT site would win hands down. I say this not because of Paper Plane’s past experience with Thomas Cook (TC), or role in seeding CT, but because the site performs really well (search speed) and provides a delightful experience (clean UI). Their back-end processes may cause some amount of heartache, but start-up’s generally have teething problems…

    Daksh, I think you should consider user experience design/strategy as a parameter in any site evaluation in the future. With respect to the Indian online travel industry, I feel CT will be a clear leader as a result of the user experience the site is able to deliver. Price is becoming less of any issue with all agents selling tickets within a small price band.

  199. M.Jahad Mamun

    I am from Bangladesh. can I member. can I make my trip from Bangladesh.

  200. @daksh – thanks for the comment – hope you liked iXiGO

    @Puneet – You should definitely try out http://www.ixigo.com at least once :-). We are currently the fastest, most comprehensive (14 Airlines, 3 OTAs) and most unbiased travel search engine in the Indian market.

    We can confidently claim to have the cheapest fares on any given sector on any given date since between the airlines and OTAs we show fares from, we are bound to found the cheapest options for you within a few seconds.

    We show all prices with taxes included, and we dont claim to sell any 99 Rs. tickets because we want consumers to know the absolute price that hits their pockets.

  201. Puneet,

    Yatra is offering free drop facility, that’s quite interesting :).
    Also, the entry of IXIGO- A travel 2.0 search engine has added new dimension to travel sites.

    Geeta, while it is nice to hear that you guys are also planning to have bus tickets to match your nearest competitor(s) I’d also recommend you to provide some differentiation/value-addition to your customers/site visitors.

    Keep writing.

    Cheers,

  204. Hi Daksh,

    Thank you for taking the time for conducting this comparison. Very informative, from the perspective of any travel-portal customer.
