“Weekends are a bit like rainbows; they look good from a distance but disappear when you get up close to them.” ~John Shirley
In any lifetime, weekend is a precious commodity — time to take a break, with friends, with family or with that special someone. The weekend arrives, and just rolls by. All this sense of glorious freedom and anticipation doesn’t seem to hold the same liberating promise that we were looking forward to. We wait for vacations, but it’s hard to cram all our desires into 1-2 weeks per year.
Contrast this with the Saturdays in school! Something fun was waiting for you, and the 1:00pm bell was the only thing standing in your way. Cleartrip wants to recreate that feeling you got right before the school bell rang!
We are thrilled to announce the launch of Activities, a handpicked & comprehensive collection of activities, experiences and things to do in your city and also when you are away. For the first time in India, you can now browse and book interesting experiences, from a collection of over 2000 activities across 30 cities spanning both metros and touristic destinations.
We are striving hard to bring the holiday experience to your city, and without you having to travel. As of now, we have a wide range of 150 themes – Culinary classes, Food walks, Segway tours, Luxury bike rentals, Yachting, Adventure, Go karting, Photography trails, Hiking, Kids, Day outings, Night treks, and more.
Even while traveling, irrespective of how & where you have booked your travel, you can book these activities at the destination. Our team of city experts has put together the best activities working with the highest quality local activity providers to deliver a great experience.
You can discover and book all these amazing activities on all of our apps – iOS, Android and Windows. The activities home screen showcases all the collections available as part of the city. Pick a specific activity and get to the activity detail screen, which showcases the activity, and the necessary details like meeting point, duration, operational days/hours, activity description and the service provider information. There is something to do for everyone, and at prices starting from Rs. 200.
All the payment options are supported – credit cards, debit cards, net banking and 3rd party wallets.
In parallel, we want to reach out to all activity providers, who are championing these experiences, to join us in this endeavor and help us reimagine travel. Please visit our partners page or reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will do all it takes to onboard you at the earliest.
As Cleartrippers, we have been mystery shopping these activities for the last few weeks, and we have loved every one of these experiences. A few personal favorites – Microlight flying in Bangalore, Feni making in Goa, taking a yacht in Mumbai & Adventurous gaming in Delhi! One of the guys remarked in jest, that we have enough activities to fill the remainder of his life’s weekends.
Give it a spin, head out, and have fun. And as always, do send us your feedback to email@example.com.
