Through its use of technology to facilitate more seamless interactions, Cleartrip Stories has helped travellers to search and discover the experience that they prefer through highly accurate, data-driven insights. The tech-driven blog, additionally, has enabled Cleartrip to create more innovative, highly-personalised products and services that enhance the travel experiences of its customers. The blog has also been playing a vital role in driving the success of Cleartrip Local, as well as the over 2,000 daily bookings currently made through the hyperlocal activities discovery feature on the platform.

Speaking on the announcement, Suman De, Product Head, Cleartrip Local, commented, “It is an extremely proud moment for Cleartrip to win the best company-operated travel blog at the SATTE Awards 2018. Being recognised on such a distinguished platform for the passion and creativity with which we have built Cleartrip Stories is an inspiring achievement for the brand, as well as for everyone involved. The award strengthens our commitment to ensure the highest levels of customer satisfaction and to deliver the most seamless, intuitive, and immersive user experience through technology.”

Through Cleartrip Stories, this is exactly what we’ve been doing. This far-sightedness and technology-driven approach has seen Cleartrip grow substantially over the past few years to emerge as one of the foremost travel platforms in the country, and it is what continues to drive the brand’s appeal amongst its target consumers,” he added.

Cleartrip Stories offers users a chance to discover and engage in hyperlocal leisure experiences and focuses on driving customer engagement and user traction through owned activities under the aegis of Cleartrip Local.
