Cleartrip will now enable its users to easily discover and book a variety of experiences, including visits to museums, amusement parks and kids gaming zones, recreational activities, day outings to Haryana Tourism’s resorts and visits to the renowned Yadavindra Gardens (formerly Pinjore Gardens), a historic 17th century garden in Mughal architectural style. Ankit Rastogi, VP- Accommodation and Activities, Cleartrip, said, “We are glad to be the first OTA chosen by Haryana Tourism as its exclusive online booking partner for activities and tours.

However, the inability to plan these visits by booking them online often leads to inconvenience. The biggest benefit of this partnership will be to our customers, who will now be able to conveniently discover and book a variety of tours and activities online on a single platform.” Vikas Yadav, Managing Director, Haryana Tourism, said “The aim behind making our inventory of tours and activities available on Cleartrip is to extend greater convenience by bringing ticketing online and ensure a larger footfall of travellers to the state.”
