Shortlists – Making your International travel planning simpler

International travel planning can be time consuming and confusing with so many factors to consider for a flight booking like price, duration of the flight, departure time and the time you want to arrive at the destination city. Users start planning much in advance and research repeatedly over a period of time to get the most optimal fares within the parameters they are comfortable with.

User’s pain points:

  1. During your research phase, you may find many flights that interest you but it is not practical to note down those flights for future reference.
  2. There is no single view to compare and track the current prices of all the flights you are interested in since these flights can be across dates. This requires multiple searches.
  3. International flight prices fluctuate every day. While you are in your research phase the prices can go up or down and you might miss the best price.

Introducing Shortlists

At Cleartrip, we strive to make your travel planning simple and enjoyable. Shortlists help you organize and compare the flights you like across various onwards and return combinations, track fares across individual itineraries and get notified if the fare is about to increase. Thereby eliminating the pressure and fatigue of re-searching those itineraries, and helping to get the job done with minimum effort.

You can shortlist any number of itineraries from the search page by simply swiping left on an itinerary to add to Shortlists. You can also shortlist from the itinerary page by using the shortlist button.

Shortlists cut the need to start from scratch every time you resume your research. You can access all your Shortlists by tapping on icon on Cleartrip app home screen or search results screen. Here you can see a list of all the flights you have shortlisted with the current fare. When you visit the shortlist page, the latest fares of the itineraries shortlisted by you are fetched and displayed.  You can also see fare trend for these flights since the time you shortlisted, indicated by the green and red arrows.

You can also be assured that you will not miss out on the cheapest fare for the itinerary because Shortlist tracks the fares on your behalf and will notify you of fare increase or decrease via push notifications and email even when you are not using the Cleartrip app or the website.

Once you have decided to book a specific flight itinerary, tap on it from the shortlisted flights to go directly to itinerary review screen and complete your booking.
