Did you know you can now book a hotel in India or overseas with no upfront payment via Make My Trip? Well, the successful online travel company has introduced a unique payment model called ‘Book with No Payment.’ It enables both domestic and international travellers to book a hotel in India or overseas with just ₹1. You will find it on the majority of hotels on the Make My Trip app and can avail of it if you book more than five days before the actual check-in date. Read on to know more about all the details of this exciting offer!
Why Has The Feature Been Designed?
Make My Trip has introduced this feature to benefit travellers with uncertain travel plans. The feature will also help travellers to book much ahead of the travel date by giving them the option to pay later, up to 72 hours before check-in, as per hotel policy. This will ease any travel-related financial anxiety.
You only need to pay just INR 1 to authenticate the payment method (including UPI/ net banking/credit & debit card and wallets) to make a hotel booking. And the best part is that if you have an unfulfilled booking, MakeMyTrip will automatically initiate a refund of the booking amount i.e., INR 1, in the original payment mode.
