Travel search engine iXiGO.com has introduced a comprehensive hotel search feature which will enable customers to search and book accommodation in real time with instant confirmation across 4,500 hotels in 320 Indian cities.

According to iXiGo, its new hotel search includes budget accommodation across hostels, guest-houses, serviced apartments and villas. iXiGo claims that its hotel search accesses more than 30 leading national and international hotel booking websites, enabling comparisons of room tariffs of the same hotel across multiple sites. The hotel search engine sorts accommodation by price, star ratings and amenities and also allows detailed views for maps and photos.

Aloke Bajpai, founder and CEO, iXiGo, has said, “We are bringing our disruptive flight search model to hotel bookings by allowing instant real-time search across hotel booking sites. By comparing aggregators like Expedia, Travelocity, Orbitz, Desiya and some exclusive international content partners such as HotelsCombined, we hope to strategically integrate with booking sites of independent hotels and hotel chains in the future, to better manage their yields and lower their internet distribution costs.”

iXiGo believes its rapid growth is a direct result of its disruptive model that allows travellers to search and book directly on airline sites, saving them time and money while reducing distribution costs for airlines. Launched in June 2007, iXiGo has been named as one of the most innovative startups in the world by Red Herring magazine and NASSCOM. iXiGo recently closed a pre-Series A investment round with Singapore-based investment fund, BAF Spectrum.
