India’s leading travel marketplace, has launched a first of its kind virtual travel currency known as ‘ixigo’ which is free of any gimmicky offers and restrictions posed by loyalty programs that other travel apps offer.
Announcing the launch, ixigo CEO & Co-Founder, Aloke Bajpai said that research indicates loyalty programs, cashbacks and wallets coming with limitations and restrictions based on their earning and usage.
He further stated that a majority of the existent programs have minimum booking values to earn anything, but then one gets their cashback earning several days after their booking.
And their earned value would probably be expiring in 90 days.
Moreover people will not be able to utilize all of their earnings at once since they permit only usage of merely a small percentage on every transaction.
With no minimum booking amounts to earn ixigo money, no usage limit on ixigo money balance, instant discounts on future bookings, guaranteed 48 hour transfers and a 6 months expiry period, ixigo money is an industry-first travel currency that works across multiple OTAs and airlines that are partnered with ixigo. In addition to all these benefits, a major bonus is that when a traveller pays their entire booking amount using ixigo money, they will be charged zero convenience fee by the booking provider.
With the value of one ixigo money being equivalent to a rupee, users are entitled to use the entire balance of their ixigo money account on their next booking transaction. The process is very simple, allowing logged in users to both earn and spend ixigo money on each booking. Travellers can avail the benefits of ixigo money by simply signing in to the ixigo website or app on android or iOS. Owing to complete transparency, consumers can now manage their account, track their usage and check out for balance expiry all with a few taps.
As an exciting launch offer, ixigo is giving new users Rs.1000 worth of ixigo money on domestic and Rs.2000 worth of ixigo money on international flight bookings. Existing users can get upto Rs.500 worth of ixigo money on domestic flights.
