Cleartrip was launched in the year July 2006, by Stuart Crighton & Hrush Bhatt. It seems like not too long ago, but Cleartrip has already completed 10 years of clean travel product to search and book for. All this, yet, keeping the pricing honest, choices transparent, and interactions consistently positive.
Cleartrip revamped its website, particularly mobile app this year. The changes have been made to improve three major aspects; performance, usage, and usefulness. The app has been introduced with a 'Local' and 'Travel' tabs to distinguish the needs according to the customer's location. The Travel tab features Flights, Hotels, Trains, and Account Info tabs. Whereas the 'Local' tab features Activities, Eat Out, Events, Fitness, and Account info. You can select the city manually or let the GPS work on the charm for the Local tab.

In the Eat-Out area, you'll get every kind of option starting from breakfast, lunch, brunch, dinners, pubs, brews, barbeque, buffets to happy hours all at one place!
