At the time of writing this article, we noted that the on the top right-hand side of Yatra, A tab named as “VISA” as listed doling out discounts for customers who have a VISA pay enabled card. Though when we pointed on it, It gave us a notification “Select Visa card holders can check their eligibility and unlock exclusive deals (Valid on Flights and Hotels only) “. Now since most of the cards in the world are VISA pay enabled ;), It is very likely when you do a transaction on their website, you may get a discount. Also, we have a lot of bank specific coupon codes listed on our site. Same goes for the deals and discounts.
Like every other E-Commerce store and Online Travel Portal, Yatra too has tied with every major bank time and again to give out offers to its customers. They have launched a "Holiday-cum-shopping card" with State Bank of India (SBI) to offers its customer special discounts and offers. This has proved quite a deal as SBI is India's largest Bank and a Government Bank as well. Hence the reach of this bank is in every possible nook and corner of the country directly giving the travel portal an access to the SBI customer base bringing in the Tour's and Travel products to the remotest of the customer.
Yatra.com serves the following travel product categories as listed on their website, Flights, Hotels, Holidays, Buses, Trains, Cruise. Flights cover both International and Domestic flights. Same goes with Hotels and Holiday packages.
“Cruise” booking is something unique with this website and facilitated by very less India travel portals. We were quite happy to see this as a separate category altogether directly listed on the front apge of the irwebsite.They also provides VISA assistance to customers.
Yatra has physical brick n mortar lounges apart from the online portal as well. These Stores most of the time carry the same deals and discounts as the online portal do; or perhaps something better. These stores help you in getting your holiday packages done with great customer experience and comfort and are especially great for the people who do not prefer Internet Bookings. Below we have listed the Cities where you can find these stores.
