MakeMyTrip Limited, India’s leading online travel company, on September 19 announced the launch of its new TV campaign with its brand ambassadors – Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt. In line with its aggressive push to drive consumers to shift from offline to online hotel bookings, MakeMyTrip is providing yet another compelling reason for customers to make the switch by offering first night free on hotels booked by first-time users.

The first night free offer on online hotel bookings is valid across 44,000 domestic hotels and is now Live for booking on the MakeMyTrip app and website.

Speaking at the launch, Rajesh Magow, Co-Founder and CEO-India, MakeMyTrip, said, “The hotel market in India is highly fragmented, under-penetrated and presents significant headroom for growth. As we see the increase in smartphone penetration and usage of digital payment mediums, we want to unlock the huge opportunity provided by the e-commerce ready users to drive online hotel penetration. Our new campaign reflects our larger business strategy of rapidly growing our hotels business and will help us step on the gas to bring new customers into the online hotel category.”

Commenting on the new TVC and offering, Saujanya Shrivastava, Group CMO, MakeMyTrip said, “Over the last few years, MMT has been focusing on category expansion in the Online Hotels space by bringing down the entry barrier for travellers. This new campaign is in sync with our objective to catalyse the switch by nudging the fence sitters and offline hotel bookers to experience the convenience of online travel.”
