MakeMyTrip’s ‘Stays for Saviours’ initiative to support healthcare practitioners fighting COVID-19

In an effort to support healthcare community during the unprecedented public health crisis, MakeMyTrip (NASDAQ: MMYT), has launched Stays for Saviours, to support temporary accommodation needs of the medical frontline force fighting COVID-19. This initiative has been rolled out in partnership with hotel chains and independent hotels that are pitching in to support our healthcare heroes across 26 states and 4 Union Territories.

This initiative will enable medical practitioners to discover and book from over 900 hotel properties across 200 cities in India on the MakeMyTrip app. Through ‘Stays for Saviours’ initiative, many  prominent hotel chains like The Park Hotels, IHG, Ginger Hotels, TreeHouse, Lemon Tree Hotels, Oyo Hotels, Keys Group, Sarovar Hotels, Royal Orchid, Citrus Group, Intellistay, Justa, Golden Tulip Hotels Chain, Lyvue group and hundreds of independent hotels have opened their doors at special Thank You rates for India’s healthcare workers.

Speaking about the initiative, Deep Kalra, Executive Chairman, MakeMyTrip Limited said, “The global outbreak of COVID-19 is making us live through extraordinary times and the exceptional service of front line workers who are fighting this on behalf of humanity needs everyone’s support and encouragement. We are grateful for the courage shown by healthcare workers and we want to assist them by providing comfortable and subsidised accommodation options to these heroic first responders. In solidarity with their sense of service we want to do our part in making it a little easier for them to find temporary accommodation that suits their needs at this point of time.”

How it works:

  • Those on the front lines in the medical fraternity can discover and book from over 27000 rooms across 26 states and 4 Union Territories available on Stay For Saviours Initiative now LIVE on MakeMyTrip app.
  • At check-in, you will be required to show your valid ID card for us to ensure that the special Thank You rates and the rooms designated for medical staff are utilized by the medical fraternity only.

Rajesh Magow, Group CEO, MakeMyTrip Limited added, “As they lead from the front, medical practitioners are most vulnerable to the virus and while they continue to serve beyond their call of duty, they need our support and care more than ever. Our initiative Stays for Saviours is made possible with the support of our valued partner hotels who share our sense of gratitude towards the medical fraternity that is standing tall to serve humanity during one if its toughest hours.
