Travel in India is seeing great new innovations and this one comes from Cleartrip. Last minute impulsive travel plans often end up as a mood spoiler when one doesn't get a decent enough place to stay on reaching the destination. For this very problem, Cleartrip has launched Quickeyes.
Taking into consideration the urgency of such situations, apart from just the desktop, Qickeyes is available on the mobile as well.
Incredibly simple, Quickeys just has an option for booking tickets either today or tomorrow. Pick the city you want to and select when you want to check in and for how many days; and you'll be given the list.
And as Cleartrip says, "Quickeys hotels have been handpicked for their quality, service and great prices; and all Quickeys rooms are available at a flat 30% discount on the best available rate. Designed for the last minute booker, Quickeys rooms are available only for same or next day check-ins. Our list of handpicked Quickeys hotels in great locations across 50 cities is growing by the day."
