MakeMyTrip India, country’s leading travel group, has recently announced a long-term strategic partnership with Amazon Pay. Powered by MakeMyTrip Limited and Redbus, this partnership will offer travel services including flights, hotels, and bus bookings to the users of Amazon.in, available across its entire suite of mobile apps and websites.

Rajesh Magow, co-founder and group CEO of MakeMyTrip Limited, said, “There is an accelerated digital shift happening as a result of the pandemic, and through this partnership, we look forward to making travel bookings extremely convenient for new adopters, thereby increasing the online penetration of travel bookings.”

“Our partnership will benefit our customers, allowing them to choose from the offerings and services across the country, followed with the ease of using Amazon Pay, facilitating a seamless journey,” said Mahendra Nerurkar, CEO & VP, Amazon Pay India.

This alliance will help the travel group extend its distribution further via Amazon Pay’s huge customer base, pushing it to smaller cities and towns, and accelerating online booking of these services across the country. It will help Amazon Pay create a seamless experience and provide greater value for its customers through the offerings, extending the convenience of making online transactions from anywhere to anyone instantly. With Amazon Pay and ICICI Bank co-branded credit card, customers will earn unlimited cashback rewards on every flight, hotel, or bus booking. Also, Amazon Pay Later will let customers book tickets and pay next month with no interest. Customers can also use different payment modes on Amazon Pay, including Amazon Pay Balance & Amazon Pay UPI to make their payments frictionless. Booking of bus services via Redbus is already live on Amazon.in and other travel services powered by MakeMyTrip will be going live over the next few months.
