Over 70% of holidays planned on HolidayIQ are through mobile devices. Secondly, we are moving from destination-led holidays to experienceled ones. And so, we have aggregated the first ever mobile-only activity-led vacations marketplace. We have associated with some of the best players in the industry including Giftxoxo, Tushky, Exploita & Padharo to provide a vast range of experiential holidays for Indian travellers. People can also review all these holidays individually on the app helping other travellers plan better.”
