DistancesBetween.com, India’s first AI based multimodal door-to-door trip planning platform, recently won the People’s Choice Award at the 2nd edition of FICCI’s renowned Travel  Tech Launchpad and conference ‘Digital Travel, Hospitality and Innovation Summit’ held in New Delhi between March 22-23rd,2017. The Travel Tech Launchpad was introduced to act as a catalyst to the growth, diversification and dynamism of India’s travel ecosystem and provide a platform for interesting innovations in the travel industry. This year, FICCI organized the Travel Tech Launchpad in association with Agnitio Consulting LLP, Nucleus Partners, TravHQ Media and Charson Advisory.

The 20 start-ups which took to the stage to present their ideas and products were judged by a panel of experts that included Bhavanipratap Rana from Amadeus Venture Partners, Kshitij Kuthiala from YourNest Angel Fund, Mayank Khanduja from SAIF Partners, Navin Honagudi from Kae Capital, Parag Dhol from Inventus Capital Partners and Stephanie Strunkfrom Amadeus IT Group. The pitches were judged on the basis of innovation, disruption, actual market need of the service provided, feasibility and scope for further growth.

DistancesBetween.com, with its unique model of providing a one-stop itinerary for multimodal, door-to-door travel was overwhelmingly praised by the audience, comprising experts and professionals in the industry. Its massive, self-updating AI based database that enabled a traveler to easily discover the best, most affordable and most efficient transportation options between destinations not directly connected by air or train struck a chord with the audience present at the event.

Commenting on the award, DistancesBetween.com, Co-Founder and CTO, Sachin Mathur said, “It gives us immense pleasure to have been recognized by our colleagues in the industry. The People’s Choice Award feels all the more special since the audience is from within the industry itself, so they are extremely knowledgeable and can easily identify quality offerings that are truly serving a purpose. We at DistancesBetween.com would also like to thank FICCI for organizing the 2nd edition of its Travel Tech Launchpad. The platform is extremely important for the innovators in the industry to be acknowledged and I congratulate all the participants for contributing to what has been an exhilarating 2-day event.”

DistancesBetween.com is India’s first player in the untapped ‘integrated meta search’ market whose business model is based upon the revenue share of transportation companies and travel partners for each ticket bought using its platform. The inception of DistancesBetween.com in February 2016 was driven by the desire to tackle the challenges in the travel space along with saving time, money and providing comfort to travelers.
