Online travel and activities platform Cleartrip on Tuesday said it has partnered with global ride sharing company Uber to integrate the latter's application program interface (API). Users will now get contextual local activity suggestions along with ride requests.
The integration will offer seamless Uber ride requests on the Cleartrip platform, a release issued in Mumbai said.
After this integration Uber riders can now discover and book local experiences in their cities.
"We are excited to enable a new channel for our product suite through this partnership with Uber. We are sure this will increase the discoverability of our Local product. We have always innovated on customer experience and this will further the cause by taking the local activity right to the users when they most likely need one," Cleartrip Chief Marketing Officer Subramanya Sharma said.
