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.”

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.
