As we work on improving the travel booking experience for all Cleartrip users, we constantly face one significant roadblock. Something we don’t have much control over. Payments. Part infrastructure, part regulation (necessary, if I may add) makes it difficult for us to innovate in the last mile. So we need someone else to come in and help us improve this bit.
We are proud to announce that, as of yesterday, Apple Pay is an accepted payment option for all transactions in UAE.
Yes, Apple Pay has been around for quite some time but we didn’t have the opportunity to integrate with our iOS app in any of the regions we are present in. Until their launch in UAE yesterday. The moment we tried it for the first time on the Cleartrip iOS app we knew we had a winner. The seamless checkout flow of Cleartrip with the absolute delight of paying with Apple Pay = The best travel booking experience.
If you are in the UAE, we’d love you to give it a try and let us know what you think. Reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your feedback.
