Travel meta search engine iXiGO.com has launched a visual
trip planning product called Trip Planner. According to the company, unlike
horizontal search engines that respond to user queries in the form of links to
pages with information, iXiGO Trip Planner provides a visual representation of options
for modes of transportation, directions and rich information about
destinations.

The app allows travelers to discover the cheapest and
fastest ways of going from one town to another and includes ideas on what to do
there, where to stay, and where to eat. Currently Trip Planner supports queries
across 250 Indian cities covering modes of transportation, cheapest/fastest
modes, distance, driving directions, flights, trains, buses and cars. iXiGO.com
is an investee company of SAIF Partners and MakeMyTrip Limited.

“With Trip Planner, we are creating a paradigm shift in how
travelers research and consume travel information. The biggest problem on internet
today is that there is too much information fragmented across several websites.
Our team has curated the most useful travel information from the web and we are
presenting it in a never-seen-before user experience. Everything you could
possibly look for is on that one page. This eliminates the need of going from
one website to another in search of relevant quality information for
decision-making related to trip planning,” said Aloke Bajpai, CEO and
Co-Founder iXiGO.com.

“We are evolving from being a travel search
engine to becoming an interactive travel knowledge engine, by developing an
understanding of common travel-related queries and answering them just like a
human being would. Our objective is to enable our users to converse with our
search engine just the way they would converse with a friend or travel guide,”
explains Rajnish Kumar, Co-Founder & CTO, iXiGO.com.
