Goibibo, India’s leading online travel brand, has announced the launch of Goibibo Flights on PhonePe, India’s leading digital payment platform. This segment is an addition to Goibibo’s on-going partnership with PhonePe. In June 2018, as part of the first phase of this association, Goibibo went live with its offering of hotels on the PhonePe platform.
PhonePe users will now have a much more comprehensive experience booking their travel with flights as well as hotel booking options now available on the payments platform. Along with easier payment, cancellation and instant refund options, travellers can also enjoy exciting discounts on domestic flight bookings.
Commenting on the partnership, Sanjay Bhasin, COO, Goibibo said, “We are excited to launch Goibibo Flights on PhonePe as we double down on synergies between the two brands. The collaboration has not only been rewarding for us but it has truly succeeded in providing a seamless travel booking experience to PhonePe users.”
Rahul Chari, Co-founder & CTO, PhonePe said, “The Goibibo partnership is a testimony to our strong synergies with the MMT group. Redbus was the first micro-app to go live on our platform, followed by the successful launch of Goibibo hotels and now flights. This partnership is a win-win proposition for our users as they can now book their flight tickets on the Goibibo micro-app and make convenient and hassle free payments using all the payment options available on the PhonePe platform.”
The partnership with PhonePe presents Goibibo with an opportunity to expand its reach to a wider audience. The partnership aims to continue offering a unified login and payments experience to over 100 million PhonePe users while making their flight and hotel bookings.
