ixigo introduces fare intelligence for flight bookings; launches its trains app on iOS

Travel metasearch ixigo has announced the introduction of an all new feature ‘Fare Intelligence’ for flight bookings. Bundling together two main functions - ‘Fare Prediction’ & ‘Fare Alerts’, ixigo uses past trends and prices to tell its users whether they should book a flight or wait for the fare to drop further.

It also constantly watches for price drops to notify users when it’s the right time to book. ixigo also keeps track of a user’s preferred travel sectors and sends them a fare alert as soon as the fare drops. User’s can also set a fare alert manually for a sector of their choice.

Commenting on this new feature, Rajnish Kumar, ixigo CTO & Co-Founder said, “We’re really happy to launch a feature that not only helps our users make pocket friendly travel bookings but also doesn’t push them into making hasty purchase decisions. Now we end up inevitably telling our users to not book a flight and wait almost 70% of the times after flight search. We believe gaining user loyalty is much more important than driving immediate conversions, which will be possible only if we help them make booking decisions that are in their best interest. Our cutting edge technology guarantees near accurate fare predictions and alerts each time!”

ixigo Fare intelligence is available on the ixigo website, as well as both the android & iOS versions of the ixigo flights app. Currently, fare prediction is available only on domestic flight searches, for a travel date which is upto 30 days in the future.

ixigo trains will now be available for download on the app store for Apple phone users. The app also shows the live running status of trains ensuring one knows exactly where their train has reached in real-time. Some other unique features include the ability to search trains by name or number, checking seat availability, fares, routes & amenities, accurate seat map display and much more.

The app is not only useful prior to the journey, but also during the trip. On the train one can use the ixigo trains app to catch up on news stories related to trains, save offline routes and even play games to pass the time. Travellers can also share information such as their PNR details, running status, availability and more with their friends and family, via the app with ease.
