Swipe left to shortlist
The travel and leisure platform Cleartrip has introduced ‘Shortlists’ on mobile and desktop to help users in their international flight booking research. Planning an international trip can be time-consuming, when you have to compare and choose between destinations, dates, airlines, flight itineraries, connecting flights, layovers and transit visas. Cleartrip has analysed travel patterns to find that travellers often start researching on portals 45-90 days in advance, and sometimes search as high as 100 times before making a booking. Cleartrip’s new feature, Shortlists, aims to ease this process by allowing users to compare multiple flight itineraries across different onward and return date combinations. On the search results page, users can swipe left on an itinerary to add to Shortlists. Check the latest fares on these shortlisted itineraries, by visiting Shortlists from the home screen and compare fares. Cleartrip tracks individual itineraries and alerts users.
