Online travel agency, Cleartrip, has launched Collections, a curated list of destinations, activities, travel themes and hotels that according to the company, will help users in their travel plans, guiding them in making a decision on where to go, what to do and where to stay.
The website has partnered with Conde Nast Traveler which publishes consumer travel magazines and has launched a set of 45 Collections. Collections
are essentially curated lists that feature visually appealing images accompanied by trivia in a guide format. Each list item also features links to Explore, which is a guide to places and tips; Get There, which features the best routes through Cleartrip's Waytogo feature, and Stay, which looks for hotels. The Collections also offer information on the best time to visit.
Users can share Collection lists with friends via social network, as well as post comments.
Some of the Collections include guides like the 'finest world cuisine in Mumbai', 'Srinagar's top tourist attractions', the 'most romantic hotels in Paris', 'visa free travel for Indians' and 'great hotels around Delhi for a weekend with family'.
Cleartrip had in July, launched Waytogo
, an online route finder that enabled users to search for routes from one point to another across all forms of transport, globally. Waytogo also offers local transit data for New Delhi, Mubai and Bangalore, assisting users plan intra-city commutes and weekend getaways.
Waytogo enables users to map different routes to their destinations, compare durations of travel, modes of transport and indicative prices. It also allows users to compare different routes on a map and select the cheapest or the most convenient route.
Cleartrip has partnered with Melbourne-based company Rome2rio to offer this feature.
