IRCTC, Oyo Rooms Partner to Offer Room Bookings to Train Passengers

The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has tied up with Oyo Rooms to launch an IRCTC hotel-booking page offering its budget room inventory to train travellers.

The IRCTC Tourism website now lists a new tab titled 'IRCTC Oyo Hotels', which redirects the user to a page on Oyo Rooms's website where users can complete the bookings. The integration is also seen on its accommodation tab, where Oyo Rooms drives all the searches under the 'Budget Hotels' tab, along with IRCTC's inventory of lounges, retiring rooms, and own list of hotels.

"As India's widest and largest network, we feel confident of catering to the passengers' needs and look forward to making this alliance a great success," said Abhinav Sinha, COO, Oyo Rooms.

Commenting on the tie up, IRCTC CMD Dr. A.K. Manocha said that tech-enabled solutions will power the next wave of innovation, and that the partnership contributes another chapter to the successful narrative of "Make in India" initiatives.

IRCTC is one of the largest e-commerce destinations in India, with 5 to 5.5 lakhs bookings per day on an average. It has previously partnered with mobile wallet players Mobikwik and Paytm, and Foodpanda to pilot its food delivery service. Oyo Rooms had recently crossed one million check-ins across its network in January 2015, and officially announced its acquisition of acquired Tiger Global backed Zo Rooms earlier this month.
