  1. Hi, My name is Rohit & I am looking for some thing which is not just a travel agent or travel booking portal. I want to explore those parts of the world & India that are not been yet explored by Tourists. For example: Arunachal Pradesh…or the small towns & villages in between two cities of South Africa. Please revert!

  2. Indian flights vary a lot, for example, I looked up prices for 2 adults flight tickets Kolkata to Jaipur 5th Dec 2008, and here is the sample for your reference:

    mmt: 16.9
    yatra: 10.6
    cleartrip: 10.6
    ezeego1: 16.6
    travelguru: 11.7
    travelmartindia: 13.6
    travelocity: 10.0 – cheapest so far
    arzoo: 10.5
    90di.com: 10.4
    zoomtra: 21
    mobissimo: 10.4
    ixigo: 10.4

    All prices in thousands of Rupees.

  3. Ok, Arzoo sucks big time. Said 7,160.00, bill total is 7,923.00 and says card charged for 7,497.00. Yuck yuck yuck! Demoted and removed from this list.

    Update: Called customer service twice, horrible experience!
