ixigo.com (pronounced ‘ik-si-go’) is a travel search engine in India. The service acts as an infomediary that aggregates travel websites to compare information and deals. ixigo does not handle bookings but instead redirects the users to book directly from other OTAs (Online Travel Agency).
The official ixigo app - ixigo Flights Search - has recently landed on the Windows Phone Store, and allows you to find the best airfares across India’s leading OTAs like MakeMyTrip, goibibo, via, Expedia, and others.
Voted as India’s fastest growing travel search engine, the service allows you to search and compare cheapest flight ticket fares. While there are more services like trip planning and holiday packages on the ixigo.com website, the app only offers a flight search engine.
The fast and intuitive Windows Phone app allows you to compare information and prices from top travel sites for best airline fares and book conveniently through the merchant’s website. While for most services, the redirection brings up a mobile or responsive website, a couple of OTAs do not offer that and the experience of booking tickets is a little awkward.
For the app though, the user experience is quite simple and functional and a couple of taps directs you to the merchant website, where you can fill in your details and get the bookings done. You can easily sort and filter flights by time, duration, price, and other criteria. You can also access your search history quickly with just a single tap.
Download the ixigo Flights Search app for free for Windows Phone 8 devices from the Windows Phone Store. Unless you are a loyal user of a particular travel booking service, ixigo Flights Search is a good way to search for best airline fares and book tickets.
Give it a whirl, and let us know how you like it.
