MoT partners with Worth Your Holidays to launch real-time travel planner, Tripigator.com

Tripigator.com will be integrated with the Incredible India website as official travel planner
The Ministry of Tourism (MoT), Government of India has partnered with Worth Your Holidays, a travel solutions provider, to launch a travel planner portal, Tripigator.com. The new site, besides providing information about attractions at a destination, mode of transport, distance between places, hotels, etc., will provide travellers the real-time cost of travel to any destination. Tripigator will be integrated with the Incredible India website of MoT—www.incredibleindia.org.

Tripigator, which has features like ‘sharing’ with co-travellers, will give information about friends/relatives who have already travelled to the said destinations.

The website was unveiled by Parvez Dewan, Secretary-Tourism, Government of India, in New Delhi. He said that with Tripigator, a traveller need not visit multiple sites to plan a travel within India. The partnership is part of the Ministry’s efforts to make the Incredible India website a one-stop travel information provider, he stated. Dewan also informed that the current focus is to make the website more efficient.

Talking about the new site, Mukul Garg, Co-founder, Tripigator.com, said that they are glad to integrate with the Incredible India website as an official “premium” travel planner. Tripigator is the first biggest “structured travel data” platform, and will continue to apply innovative technology after assessing customer feedback and demand. He said that the mobile application for Tripigator will be introduced in due course. However, he stated, Tripigator would remain a “travel planning site” and would not be transformed into a “travel booking” engine. Nonetheless, they might look at integrating with a few players to create user-friendliness in the future, Garg informed.

Tripigator will help both domestic and international travellers in planning trips seamlessly, on the basis of basic inputs such as timeline, budget, areas of interest (adventure, romantic, nature, etc.) and destinations of choice. The technology creates a range of travel itineraries in less time and ranks them according to user experience.

The website aggregates the information from all over the web to create structured travel data and applies decision theory and technology to create personalised holiday itineraries with real-time prices, which in turn can be shared by users with their travel companions, enabling collaboration of travel plans.
