Speaking on the launch of Alexa skills, Suman De, Director of Products at, Cleartrip, said, “Cleartrip, since its launch, has been dedicated to ensuring a hassle-free, convenient, and engaging travel booking experience for its customers. The launch of our Alexa skill is another step in that direction. Voice is a tool that makes discovery easier and swifter by eliminating the need for multiple inputs. Through this integration, we are taking the travel discovery experience to another level by enabling users to save time and effort while searching flight options. With our engineering team currently working on enhancing our existing Alexa skill, we are looking to add more options in the near future.”
Cleartrip has previously introduced several innovative new features, such as shortlists and guided navigation, to facilitate superior user discovery and booking experience on its web and mobile platform. Having now ventured into voice search, Cleartrip will be looking to further enhance its Alexa skills and add more options to serve the end-to-end travel and leisure booking requirements of its users.
