New Delhi. HolidayIQ, India’s largest holiday information portal powered by the Indian traveller community, yesterday announced the launch of the ‘Offline mobile guide’ for over 1300 Indian destinations. Each destination guide will contain details on hotels, sightseeing options, etc, allowing the user to download and access traveller reviews and maps for on-the-go access, even while offline.  The offline guide was launched by Lalit K Panwar, Secretary, Ministry of Tourism, Government of India, as part of the initiative to promote tourism in the country.

Launching HolidayIQ’s offline mobile guide, Panwar said, “We are glad that this is in line with the government’s high priority to promote tourism and travel in the country. As the tourism infrastructure gets stronger, we see more and more people wanting to travel within the country.”

HolidayIQ’s offline mobile guide answers the five key questions before each holiday - where to go, how to reach, where to stay, what to do and where to book. The offline feature offers the largest repository of travel information – 37,000+ hotels, 50,000 plus sightseeing options across 1300 plus destinations, which includes resorts, homestays, serviced apartments, tented camps etc for each destination.

Commenting on the innovation, Hari Nair, Founder & CEO, HolidayIQ, said, “HolidayIQ.com provides highly customised rich information and insights on places, hotels, sightseeing and transport made uniquely relevant, what we call the ‘science of holidays’. We take pride in enabling travellers to discover, plan holidays and share holiday experiences. However, our constant battle within our team was to provide access to this large database of information on-the-go, where internet accessibility is the biggest challenge. Thus, the launch of the offline feature, with a native-mobile experience.”

Reviews, photographs, maps to find accommodation, etc, have all been mapped and included in the guide, which also allows users to compare prices across 15 plus travel agencies along with contact details.
