With the ever-growing and promising start-up ecosystem in India, there are a plethora of opportunities for passionate and driven individuals to cut their teeth in different domains. One such sector is travel and over the past few years, a good number of portals have mushroomed all over the country which have ushered in a new era as far as travelling is concerned.
Here we take a look at three of such impressive start-ups:
A very western concept has been brought to India by travel start-up goMowgli. There is this prevalent practice in the west where one can just board a bus and get off at any place without any restraints. It is called the hop-on-hop-off bus and it has now been introduced in India.
The company has a fleet of buses across different states which allow you to purchase a pass for a fixed number of days. Once you get the ticket, get in touch with goMowgli and they will then inform you about the nearest bus.
One of the biggest impediments and constraints while planning a foreign trip is purchasing forex. The ever-changing rates and cumbersome documentation process proves to be a real pain. Also, you have to locate a trusted money changer and then negotiate with the travel rates.
However, with ExTravelMoney, these hassles are taken care of – they bring you the best available exchange rate in the market for that day. Log in to the website, punch in the forex requirement and the website will connect you with the nearest forex dealer.
The best part about this start-up is that once you have contacted the dealer and made a request, the prices are locked and will not fluctuate.
This is a mobile-first travel technology and provides real-time local content irrespective of how and where the booking is done. They are based in the United States and the product is currently being developed in Bangalore. They are aiming to redefine how consumers explore local destinations and are making their presence felt.
