If you have ever tried to plan a long journey, you would know how much it is a headache to compare your travel options. This problem sharply comes into focus when you want to spend the least amount of money to get to Point A to Point B is the least possible time, while making sure you’re not being fleeced.
Cleartrip, the popular online ticketing service has come up with a very innovative way to this problem with its new portal called WayToGo. WayToGo is a travel mode comparison service crafted with help from Rome2Rio, a startup based in Melbourne, Australia that organizes the transportations systems of the World.
WayToGo has a very intuitive interface that asks the user to provide the ‘From’ and ‘To’ locations, and an optional date of departure. It then searches for all the possible modes of transportation available and show the user the shortest route in doing so. This is especially useful for complex routes where you might have to use different modes of transportation to get from point A to point B.
The portal is connected to the Cleartrip database, meaning you can compare between the costs of travel between different airlines, trains and buses on that particular day. WayToGo allows you to explore travel routes anywhere in the world and within a city. You can just as easily search for the best way to travel from Kothrud to Kalyani Nagar in Pune as you can for the best way yo travel from New Delhi to Mexico City.
