When you scroll down, the images and banners tumble like Pinterest, this is easy and smooth and very eye catching again. The different categories are like Business Hotels, Luxury Hotels, Budget Hotels and Holiday Hotels are highlighted with HI RES images and several unique offers like the Sunburn offer, Musikcon and steal deals like the 25% discount are showcased beautifully with various tools like layover text and “new” and “deal” buttons. The overall effect of the new UI is very pictorial and appealing.

But what we have been talking about are what could be called cosmetic improvements, the real star of the new UI is our all new Universal Search Portal or what we call the Goibibo’s one stop shop. This awesome tool allows you access to International hotels, Domestic hotels, Location specific hotels like Karol Bagh or Andheri, Area defined hotels like Airport Zone or Bus Stand, Landmark oriented hotels like Taj Mahal Area and of course Hotel Name specific searches. We feel that being timeline independent is what makes this engine special and liberating in many ways.

And now presenting the superstar of the piece, which is the auto suggest function. This is a self correctional engine that can recognise and fix spelling mistakes.

It also intelligently suggests AKA names. For example if you type “Udhagamandalam” the search platform automatically knows that you are talking about “Ooty”
