We are now building to disrupt the tier-2 and tier-3 travel market just like social commerce apps (Meesho, Glowroad, Mall91) disrupted the traditional e-commerce space.
We do not have direct competition with B2C portals like MMT or Easemytrip. We are competing with local travel agents who now do the bulk of offline bookings.
Bharat users are not able to do travel booking. The primary factor is their inability to understand or trust online platforms that do not communicate with them in a language they are comfortable with. Over 400 Mn Indians have never transacted online despite being on the internet. 52% of entire travel booking (~$38B) still happens offline and the market is very fragmented.
