Online ticket booking has emerged as one of the most sought-after services in the recent years, thanks to the paradigm shift among users who have taken a liking to traveling.
Booking of flights, trains and bus tickets have increased exponentially. There are also more takers for holiday packages and hotel accommodation through the online mode of booking.
With the travel industry headed towards a boom, online travel companies are seeing a big boost in traffic and revenues. While the market gets flooded with new travel companies every day, one company seems to have stamped a mark of authority for itself and remains the undisputed king of the travel ring.
