Before launching mobile apps and content, ixigo.com started out as a travel meta search engine and this still remains one of our crucial elements. In simple words, Their travel meta search engine helps you choose the cheapest deals on flights, hotels, trains, and buses. The user simply needs enter his or her requirement and they pull out the best deals offered by travel websites as well as the websites of airlines, hotels, and other providers.
